If you’re looking for something with more internal bays, Newegg also has the BUFFALO Diskless System LinkStation Pro Quad Network Storage (LS-QVLE) for $129 shipped (Reg. $249) using code 24HRS2SAVE7 during checkout. While we have seen this model go for about $20 less, this is the lowest current price we can find. Reviews aren’t easy to come by, but 6 Newegg customers rate it 4 out of 5 eggs.

As usual, we recommend WD’s Red internal drives for NAS solutions, as they tend to offer great performance for the money starting at $67 or less.
