Budget NAS?

I'm open to most any options that will get me to my storage requirements of 16TB.

I'm not opposed to shucking WD EasyStore drives to get white label WD Red drives.

For example I built the following impossible NAS for my sister:
$200 used Synology 4 bay
$100 for 2 used 8 TB WD white label drives
$120 for a brand new WD 8TB EasyStore that I shucked the drive from
Yes, getting a second hand NAS is not a bad idea. With a two-bay model, you do not even need to think too much about the drives you use.J series are very cheap but not very fast. I would recommend value, play series at least.I hope this helps.
