Black Friday is just a few weeks away and it's a great time of year to purchase storage enclosures or hard drives. Hard drives have been in severe short supply over the past months but are back at regular levels as we enter the holiday season.
Although network-attached storage (NAS), enclosures have not had the same availability issues, there have been fewer new launches in this category than previous years. Despite this, DiskStation DS1520+, one of the most popular home NAS models, continues to be a great choice. It handles everything, from Plex media streaming at 4K to backing-up your connected phones, and much more.
When buying a NAS enclosure, there are a few things you should consider. The first is the number and size of the drive bays. Budget models usually have one or two drive bays. Mid-range models can have four or more. I recommend that you choose a single-bay or two-bay NAS enclosure if this is your first time buying a NAS.
There are already some attractive deals on NAS enclosures. But we will have to wait a few more weeks before the really amazing discounts go live. I have compiled a list of NAS enclosures you should look at this Black Friday.
