I lost two hard disk while traveling in my bag and lost 1000 gb storage capacity due to this.
While going over why data loss.
It came to my mind its due to mechanical damage and only way to prevent it while traveling is this

Msata based external drive.
I procured 64 gb msata drive from Samsung 830 series and my digital ssd msata enclosure.

This combo gives damn fast speed over USB 3 and I don't have to worry about mechanical damage.

This drive serves as my portable transfer drive while my new 3 TV external drive Which sits at home does all storage duty.
Isn't it great ?

Fastest pocket drive.

Finally decided to upgrade my NAS Box.
So here is the Synology 1513+






Backpanel with plenty of giga lan ports :)


Size compared to Lancool k62


The Nas could not be complete without the hdds





Waiting for the Switch to arrive so it can be setup :)


Some other purchases not related to the NAS.

Bought a new HDD, Seagate 1TB ST1000DM003 for 3.7k. Performance is pretty good for a mechanical drive, it reached a max speed of ~195 MB/s and averaged at ~155 MB/s in HD Tune benchmark test.
