    I have a NAS with 4 drives, I have my desktop that runs Usenet just connect directly to the NAS, so it downloads to the desktop then transfers (and I think unpacks ON the NAS).

    It may just be timing, but I've had a few drive failures on the NAS (they were years old anyways), but would that sort of setup be bad for the drives at all?

    i was just doing research last month in deciding NAS vs just plain external drives and i'm wondering what enclosure and drives you used?

    I have a seagate blackarmor N440 w/ now a mix of drives.

    The one that JUST died was a few weeks old, so I think it was just a dud. But it got me thinking that if the usenet to the NAS all automated put more strain on the drives or not.

    I have my main computer unpack everything and then moves them to my NAS.

    I don't remember the model, but it mine is made by Buffalo. Not overly impressed with it, but it'll do for now.

    That's what I was wondering, so it does unpack ON the computer then simply transfers the full file to the final destination?

    I don't see why Usenet use would be any different than any other use. It's just data being copied to the drives.

    I am not a heavy Usenet user, but my SABnzbd folders all live directly on our ReadyNAS Duo.

    Just trying to think of any reason why I've had drives die, but I think it was a combo of 1 being old and one being a dud from the get go.

    Shouldn't hurt it. It's just random I/O to the drive..nothing too special about it. I have a Windows VM that runs sabnzbd and sick beard with it actually running on one of my Synology NAS. So it's doing all the work of unpacking and checking and then the media gets moved to a second Synology. No issues so far...and no odd drive failures.

    Correct. It adds a few extra minutes to the process for the copy, but I'm not in THAT big a hurry.

    I'm in heaven now. I moved into a new house and went from crappy DSL speeds of 6Mbps to cable speeds of 30-40 Mbps.

    That's what I'm hoping for when I move hopefully this year, go from DSL to either cable or hopefully FIOS

    Optimum. No caps (and I do regularly go over 1TB a month).
