Update (4/29 1:30pm): Newegg also has the QNAP (TS-212P-US) Two-bay Personal Cloud NAS for $89.99 shipped. This storage system typically goes for $115 or more at retailers such as Amazon.

Whether you have a large library of media or simply are in need of a backup solution, Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a quality route to take to ensure your data is safe. Online cloud services certainly have benefits but ultimately the peace of mind that comes with storing data locally is often the best path to take. This allows users to access data whenever needed, some systems are even designed specifically for media playback on Apple TV or other streaming media players. Today, we have selected two deals at Newegg on a NAS system and hard drive to help get you started on safely backing up your data.

First up is the QNAP (TS-431) 4-Bay Personal Cloud NAS Diskless System with DLNA and PLEX support for $289.99. Applying coupon code 0428DYUGD21 at checkout drops the price down to $219.99 shipped. That is $70 better than Amazon’s listing and the best current price.

QNAP includes a one-year warranty with purchase. Amazon users agree that this is a solid choice, rating it 4.3/5 stars.

Of course, if price isn’t an issue we highly recommend checking out the line of NAS products from Synology. In addition to many of its products garnering 4.5+/5 ratings on Amazon, these DiskStations are often noted for a dependable design that is easy to setup.

You’ll want to pair the QNAP with 3.5-inch hard drives that are designed for NAS storage. Newegg is currently offering the WD Red 4TB 3.5-inch internal hard drive for $160.99, but coupon code ESCARNX24 drops the final price down to $149.99 shipped, which is the best current offering.
