We've compared network attached storage (NAS) devices from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Aussie retailers.
Even though we back up a lot of our data to the cloud these days, many people still opt to have their data stored securely on something tangible in their own home. For those people, there are network attached storage (NAS) solutions.
NAS devices are modular storage devices for the home or office that allow you to store and retrieve your personal data (photos, movies, songs etc.) to and from one centralised location.
Having a NAS in your home or office is a little like having your own private and secure cloud in the home or office, but you will pay a price for the convenience and peace of mind. We’ve rounded up the most popular NAS solutions in Australia so you can compare prices side-by-side.
Prices were last checked between 7 Dec 2017 and 22 Dec 2017 and may be subject to change. Prices include any discounts but exclude potential shipping charges.
