    I'd be interested in hearing of anyone's experience with NAS devices as a target for backups, how well yours integrates with Active Directory, and the like...

    Thanks!

    I use a D-Link DNS-321 for a few clients. It doesn't integrate with AD but for backups it works fine. I like that it take bare drives with no cages. Swapping out hard drives can be done in about 40 seconds if you are quick.

    We ended up getting a Thecus N7700 with 7 x 1.5 TB drives, including one hot spare and one 'spare' spare. It integrates well with AD, but the administration interface 'lacks sophistication' compared with the Ajax-based ones in QNAP and Synology NASes. Due for implementation a week Saturday.
