Photo Album


Last of all is a test based around a photo album. When a photo album is viewed on-screen, only the images that you see are loaded from the drive and so when you scroll through the album, the new images have to be fetched and read. The album here contains 169 photos with varying file sizes based on the size, quality and detail in the image. Reading the files in a photo album puts an unusual read load upon the drive as the metadata is read, a thumbnail constructed and finally the image viewed.

    Maybe one of these years I’ll find a NAS handy but at the moment I have absolutely no use for them, I guess a lot do though.

      Build your own! Actually I am working on a DIY NAS Build Guide, currently on hold for my exams, but yes I think it might appeal to you when I finally finish it. It is about building the most cost efficient NAS possible so yes..right up your street 😉

    All the points are good BUT .. there is no reliable evidence that the raised temps you quote will lead to any discernable decrease in disc life (possibly over the very long term 8-10 years).
    direct playback would be nice but maybe too much of a (software/copyright) can of worms?
    ryan martin .. quietness+ (but keep an eye on the HP microserver)
