Hi,

I have a WD PR2100 NAS and am considering using that for my roms and using a PC for Launchbox (SSD), images/snaps and emulators (on HDD).

The NAS has two ethernet ports (one currently connected to modem) and I would use other port to connect to my PC.

Has anyone had much luck doing it this way?

I would be emulating N64 and PS1 as the most demanding systems.

Thanks

Lots of people use network storage for there roms, as long as you dont actually put Launchbox on it and keep that local it will be fine.

Would I add videos onto the NAS as well? If so I could get away with just an SSD for my PC and not have to rely on an internal HDD.

I've just got a 16TB WD My Book Duo, which I plan to run in 8TB Mirrored, so a little NAS thread would be great!
