External SSD

Tue Oct 04, 2022 9:00 am

I’m researching the hAP ac³ router. I want to connect it to a Mac and TV. Use HD (SSD) to store videos and photos to view on TV.🤔

It is possible to connect storage via USB. Beware that file service (SMB, ...) is notoriously slow on all MT models so far, not really fit to be used as a decent NAS. I'm not sure about full compatibility with macOS either. And no DLNA service available natively on ROS (can be handy for TV).

Wouldn't it be easier to use a stupid Raspberry PI with some media server for that purpose ?
And I'm sure there will also be a container solution but good luck with resources on ac3 then.

My view: don't use a router as NAS.
