I was thinking about getting an NAS device for my home to replace my home desktop (which I just use to cycle out movies/videos/music and any other kind of data to my iPad). But I need some of these features:
-Definitely to be able to access them from the iPad
-Be able to connect to it outside the home (from another country too if possible)
-Be able to add files TO the drive FROM the iPad (inside and outside my home)
-Be protected somehow (password protected I guess) so not everyone can view them.
-Copy files from the drive to the iPad
-Ability to manage the files on the drive from the iPad.
I'm completely new to this so I don't know much. Do all NAS devices typically provide these supports? Are there specific devices that I need to look for iPad compatibility? Aside from transfer speeds and the number of drive bays, what are the differences among NAS devices? Can anyone give me a recommendation of an NAS storage that provides me the features above? I was browsing some on newegg, but I just don't know what I'm to be looking for.
