    NAS suggestions

    Hi,

    I would like to purchase a NAS which also incorporates multiple functionality. Ideally it should have the following specs.

    Printserver
    RAID with 2 drive bays
    DLNA compliant
    USB ports
    FTP / Webserver
    Bit torrent

    It does not have to come with drives, I can fit them in later.

    I was looking at Qnap, synology etc but could not find one that exactly met my requirements.

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks,

    Pav

    The problem with 2 bay NAS boxes is that they're not really going to have the CPU grunt to do on-the-fly transcoding for proper DLNA stuff.

    Hi, anything you can recommend which would fit the bill, even if it is more than 2 bay ?

    Thanks.
