    Well if I'm going to use it for data only, I can survive with my router @ MB-LAN, just work off my RAID 1 HDDs on the main PC, after that run a cron job/script to copy to GB-LAN NAS.

    RAID 5, 1 or 1+0 offer the same redundancy. It's the number of disk and amount of "wastage" that you need to consider.

    RAID 0+1 or 1+0 or 10 is the best. All of them refer to the same thing.

    Having lost my data and system setup fail on me so often (2ce in the last 10months), I think a little expenditure probably can help me to ease my heartpain

    True... backup has always been the lowest priority for everyone until data are lost.
    Can consider the following if you are interested in home NAS.

    On this note, the old model Buffalo 1Tb Terastation is going for $1399, The newer model (Terastation Pro) will be in around Apr IIRC and should retail around $1799.
    Actually the Terastation is currently quite good value for money.

    King, are you still having problems with your computer? where you stay? maybe free service for you to fix your computer.

    What did you get? So far I couldn't find one that is better than the Terastation series and the Terastation has limitation.

    Got a Thecus 4100 with 4 x 300Gb 7200.9 Sata II Seagate HD.
    Equal to Terastation Pro and with hotswap.
    They have also just launch the 5200.

    How much did the setup cost you? You didn't arrange for hotspares?

    Total $2030, with 4 disk raid 5 I think no need for hot spare (Waste money leh).
    If not too fussy can get Terastation at $1399, 1 Tb, after format raid 5 maybe around 750Gb

    Does it support Chinese character? The Terastation has problem with Chinese character. If the filename is in Chinese, it will not be able to save in the terastation.
    BTW where or which vendor did you get your Thecus from?

    Yeh, that is what I thought so too. I nearly lost my data when my old machine died once on me. Luckily can get back. So from than onwards I was looking for new machine and a new storage system. Now my new PC and new storage systems works wonderfully together and I get reliability and peace of mind.
