    Hello! Iv just started to dip my toe into the computer world and know i have a steep hill to climb... I have just brought my first ever Mac but have heard about NAS drives... i only know the basics but which one would you recommend? Is the Apple Time Capsule worth a look too? (iv been told they are not quite the same thing) I Have just brought the new macbook so want some more wireless storage for iPhones, iPads etc.

    Any help would be great!!!!!

    The Apple Time Capsule is a good all-in-one device that offers plenty of storage. Depending on your usage, the storage capacity of your MacBook in conjunction with iCloud may be more than sufficient. Backing up your iPhone to iCloud and/or iTunes may be more beneficial to you.

    Thanks Just_Me_D, i have been tempted with the time capsule but heard some bad reports do you have one?
    Its mainly photos and iTunes i need backing up so storage should be enough.

    And if you do decide to purchase a NAS, make sure to do your homework. There are many such devices and not all of them are very good—regardless of the price.

    Like Just_Me_D said, if an Apple Time Capsule will work for you, that is probably the best device to start with.

    You're very welcome, and yes, I do have one. I've had for about 6 years and have yet to have any problems with it. That's one of the reasons I've yet to get the latest model. I use it primarily as my Wi-Fi network and secondarily as an external storage device. Backup of photos, music and other data are stored on it, but I also have that information stored in other places as well.

    Thanks again, once my bank balance has recovered a trip to the local store will be in the calendar.
