Technology / Cannot decide on a NAS out of the two
« on: January 03, 2016, 12:23:34 am »

So I plan on buying a NAS (Network Attached Storage) when I can and I've narrowed it down to these two as I want 4-bay and just wanted some opinions on them :) I'll link below.

NETGEAR ReadyNAS 104 4-Bay Diskless NAS (Max 16TB) [RN10400-100AJS]

Seagate 4 Bay Diskless NAS [STCU300]

I am leaning more towards the NETGEAR as it has support for dlna media servers like Plex however I an uncertain whether the Seagate has those capabilities and I am going to do more research soon. Just thought i'd see what you guys think :) .

Oh and yes, how great are Australian tech prices? (Sarcasm intended).

Almost finished my program, i just need 3 more wallpapers...
and heres the code for the "setwallpaper" side of things if anyone wants it,

Code: [Select]
Public Shared SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER As Integer = 20
    Public Shared SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE As Integer = 1
    Public Shared SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE As Integer = 2

  Private Declare Sub SystemParametersInfo Lib "User32.dll" (ByVal action As Integer, _
  ByVal iparam As Integer, ByVal vparam As String, ByVal options As Integer)

Public Function ChangeDesktop(ByVal DownL As String)
  Dim IMG As System.Drawing.Image
  Dim conf As String = DownL.Substring(DownL.Length - 4)
  Dim wc As New System.Net.WebClient()

  '// Make it check if the file already exists for proper a proper working function.
  wc.DownloadFile(DownL, System.IO.Path.GetTempPath + "wallpaper" + conf)

  IMG = IMG.FromFile(System.IO.Path.GetTempPath + "wallpaper" + conf)
  IMG.Save(System.IO.Path.GetTempPath + "\wallpaper.bmp", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp)
  SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER, 0, System.IO.Path.GetTempPath + "\wallpaper.bmp", SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE)
Return Nothing
    End Function

i used a button + image box instead of a button + textbox because it looks better but its up to you

Title says it all, and if some people do, can we make it a sub-topic in technology so people can give tips/help if its needed...
