Keep in mind that you need a network with Gigabit Ethernet hardware (including the switches and the network hardware in your machines) to get the fast datarate.

Thanks. I'll get a Gigabit switch connected behind ISP's router which I won't touch avoiding breaking the contract term.

I already have Gigabit network card installed on PCs. Regarding fiber optic cable I have neither experience on it nor made any search yet.

For the cloudstation which function I haven't searched deeply up to now. It looks to me similar to wireless router. Should it be in such a case I don't need a switch nor fiber optic cable because the connection is via PCI receiver card.

You don't need fiberoptic at all for Gigabit Ethernet, Cat5e copper wires will be sufficient.

the 10/100/1000 is the network connection, not the transfer rate of read/write to the HDDs.

If you are on a gigabit network (1000) then you will be able to get bursts up to the max speed of 300 MB/s, but if you are still on an older 10/100 LAN, then your LAN will be the bottle neck, not the NAS device is in short what that info is telling you.

yes as you are running Ubuntu, then the screen darkening is a built in feature that means the system is either thinking, or not happy with what it was told to do.

that is the NAS i would recommend. 2 drive 2 TB for roughly $200 USD.

that is their pricegrabber link with pricing ranging from $190 - $220 USD.

Yes, its price is quite interesting. But I must sort out space problem.

My table it now full of devices, 2x24" displays, PC, printer, scanner, modem, router, etc. It is quite congesting. I have to put one PC under table. For space problem I abandor building my own NAS on old stuffs which I have plenty here.

NAS is not too difficult to build, software available on Opne Source
