Cheapest NAS for Nvidia Shield TV 4K HDR

I have an Archer c7 router connected to a nvidia shield with an usb 3.0 1TB hdd attached.
The limiting factors on my system is the router that doesnt have usb 3.0 (therefore cant host 4k hdr content properly) and the shield which doesnt allow me to torrent directly some file to it and, doesnt work with SMB half the time. What i was thinling was getting a NAS to be able to torrent files directly from my pc (without the files reaching my pc) and to be able to acess it from the shield and acess the 4k hdr high bitrate content.
I dont need any other options on the NAS. i want it as “dumb” as possible and pay as little as possible. what are my options?

This is a very popular question. And indeed you need very simple NAS for your video storage and download tasks. You can link it to shield TV and watch 4K content. I would suggest connecting thing using LAN cables as wifi is not as fast and not as reliable. What I would suggest is Synology J series or Qnap P series NAS. They are very cheap but also reasonably fast to cope with 4K data transfer.
