    I'm not mad, just a little bit sad, and disappointed that our friends didn't let me know that you wanted something ultra-high performance for you editing and storage needs! We're going to build one and see how it stacks up against a Jellyfish!. Find out how we did this with Patrick Kennedy from servethehome.com/

      Rannon I think they are focused on the consumer side of things, while Linus is often more technical

      I honestly don't really have much of an idea what MKBHD and iJustine knows. Aren't MKBHD just a great filmer/photograper who reviews phones, cameras and other flashy stuff that are related to his area or easy to show off? iJustine I don't really know anything about except that she uses Apple stuff.

      I think the reason so many people are attacking as to is because they wasted money like outline as waste money but it you know most the time it's stuff I was gifted or sponsorship deals and that's really not wasting money this is that the German waste of overpriced garbage now I just mean she waste her money all the time buying Mac stuff it's kind of expected but M KB HD has done wonderful work and as enlighten many people including myself and you literally had the king of server solutions and you just ignored it you could have saved a bunch of money but they did it they decided they were going to let the stupid jellyfish be their solution and as a man who does have a home server it's not that blocking Ard this that 1 up I have set up Subway runs on Wi-Fi hard wired or even God forbid as a cloud server you know how long it took me a set the dam thing up 20 minutes and I was installing every fucken drive

          One of the things I love about how Linus & team do things is the fact that they remind you to like, OR DISLIKE, & say IF YOU LIKED IT.... as opposed to so many out there telling you to like & subscribe & hit the bell & blah blah blah. The fact that they understand this very simple concept(that people appreciate their feelings being considered) goes REALLY far, IMHO, in making them such great content creators.
          Thanks LMG! Keep it up! ^_^

                  It's important to set the link aggregation load sharing algorithm to be port based when you use it for a single destination IP. Not sure wether you did that.
                  Then every PC can theoretically use its own link to the storage.

                          Nothing sacrilegious at all about plugging directly into a nas for video editing if you don't need to use more than the ports you have in the back, why buy a switch? Especially since 10gbe switches aren't cheap.

                                    considering that MKBHD and others really are NOT deep dive tech channels, more like "hip surface level tech" channels that cater to the tech illiterate crowd... does it surprise me that they didnt take the time to build their own servers? no... not at all. they are the kind of customers that companies like Apple, LOVE. also, its hard to justify the meaning of price to some of these channels, as they dont seem all that grounded as to what the average person is able to afford or looks for, tis the allure of the American Dream.

                                                      I thought I spent a lot on my NAS build years ago. Around 3k - without drives mind you. The case alone was like 1.5k. Supermicro 24 bay chassis. Nice case but so expensive, not sure I'd go that route again.

Maybe there's a bug in your software because some hacker decided to stop certain data from being released to the correct IO device? That sounds like magic people would buy!

Not because you don't want to get your lazy ass off the couch. Fricking self proclaimed tech savvy.

                                                                                Also, how does that compare to teaming the nics onto a decent speed switch?

I am a DIY person but there is nothing wrong with off the shelf solutions as long as the solution is customisable for what I or you require with support down the line.
