Re: NAS raid with Debian?

You are best to build your own, given that the majority of cheap NAS
boxes use Freescale ARM or even MIP's chips. The poor little buses in
these things are barely able to transport between 10-50mbit between
the CPU and attached storage devices. So your performance is always
going to be marginal. Certainly nowhere near the performance of a
cheap x86_64  based board attached to a Sata disk.

You can pick up relatively inexpensive atom or amd e series mobo's or
even laptops with ESATA for the 200-300$ range and then just add esata
caddy to them.
