Anyone know anything about odroid-c2. In my hunt for a cheap linux based Nas sent me to some info that the pi3 only has 100 Mbps Ethernet and usb/Ethernet share a bus. This isn't ideal for a Nas setup (I know it works but I would like performance out of the Nas). This odroid-c2 has a quad core CPU, 2 gb ram, gig Ethernet, and no bus sharing. For $60 of Amazon it sounds good.

Yeah the Raspberry Pi is more of a learning/prototyping/cheap PC. Probably not good for things like routers, NAS, HTPC where your data, security, performance are very important. Not that you can't create these things with the Pi, but its just a baby PC, maybe a large toddler. It can do lots of things, some very well, some more at the level of proof of concept. That's why for $35 it really makes sense as a solution instead of an old PC with its power requirements, space requirements, and heat. The way I see it once you have a real use case that requires more resources than the Pi, you go for something like one of the new inexpensive small PCs.

Give us more info on that odroid-c2 device if you pick one up.

You may want to take a look into Terminals.

They are usually normal x86 computers with passive cooling and actually some upgrade options (like Ram,cpu, some even PCI/PCIE).
And they tend to go for less than most of current powerful ARM miniputers.
Power wise we are talking about 25-30W. I personally use HP T5735 with upgraded cpu (Sempron 2100+ changed to Turion X2 TL-60 as well as very quiet active cooling) as a HTPC.

Even the fastest pc in the world cannot beat imagination.

My end plan was to use an arm device to serve a usb raid enclosure in raid 1. Space and cost being the factors for me. I won't be streaming movies over the network (music yes), but would like to backup computers directly to the nas.
Should I go with something that is a step up from an arm CPU? What are these WD cloud books using for a cpu...

Cost wise such stuff can wary from sub-10$ on low-end(like HP T5720) to 50-ish$ on "high-end" side(like HP GT7725).
All depends on what exactly you need.Size wise it should be similar or bit bigger than aftermarket NAS.
In general all aftermarker NAS use very weak hardware for high cost.


According to some DIY guy who took apart such Western Digital MyCloud those devices use low power dual core ARM @650Mhz as cpu.
It also has 256MB ram.

I guess any other devices are similar.

Building your own NAS allows you to customize it more (for example adding streaming or torrent client).

I'm also upgrading my RPi2 to Odroid-C2, such a massive upgrade it should be. 4K output and everything, amazing deal for such a cheap and tiny machine.

kbab?

Right now I'm just using it to goof around with. Surfing and that sort of thing is all.

But I have plans to use it to implement speaker crossovers in a stereo system.

Or I might let my kids use it for their computer maybe, not totally sure yet.
