Hallo. I am looking for a NAS that allow me to store lightroom CC photos (from mbook pro mid 2010 which is OK with lightroom cc) (I have 20-30mb raw files when I shoot) plus the possibility to use drag and drop for iOS files app in ipad so I can easily email attachment from file folder in ipad or iphone
I also use plex and I would appreciate the possibility to connect it by hdmi to tv and to be able to plav full HD movies downladed from bittorrent. When I travel I download the movies on plex to my ipad for watching them on the go. Do I need plex for that or is it ok the nas movies folder?
I want a system which is easy and friendly to iOS and OSx as I am thinking to switch to ipad pro 2018s
I noticed that sinology does not work with file management in iOS. So is it qnap 253be my choice? Or a cheaper model?
I can also consider something similar to qnap 253b if it allow me to save pics from sd card on the camera. However if i have to import them to lightroom cc via sd card or camera it is useless.
You got it right. TS-253B or TS453B not only feature SD card slot but also a quick connect port at the front. This means it can be directly connected over the USB as well as over the HDMI. Also if you decide to do bigger photo file editing or video editing- it features PCIe slot for a 10GbE upgrade. This makes it a very future proof NAS between its competitors. It also features iSCSI functionality for the software – which doesn’t support network drives as a storage device.
