Network-attached storage was once a tricky concept that not many felt comfortable enough to tackle, but these days it’s easier than ever to get started. All you require is the best NAS enclosure, which can be purchased for less than $150. Some deals pop up on enclosures and drives and I will collate the best NAS deals right here for you to check out and save.

Best NAS deals

Whether you require a small enclosure to get you started or a 16-bay monster, some deals can be found throughout the year. Here are some of my favorites.

This is one of TerraMaster’s latest affordable two-bay enclosures with an ARM processor, enough RAM for storing files and running apps, and a great price for those new to the world of NAS.

TerraMaster F2-423 | $138 off

The F2-423 from TerraMaster has an Intel processor and upgradable RAM, making it a far more powerful server than the F2-212 also on sale. You could run a media server, store backups, and so much more.

TerraMaster F4-423 | $175 off

This is essentially the same NAS as the TerraMaster F2-423 but with an additional two drive bays for even more storage capacity. Such a large enclosure is great for busier homes and offices.

TerraMaster F2-223 | $52 off

Want an affordable Intel-powered TerraMaster server? Look no further than the F2-223. This is about as budget-friendly as you can get with capable hardware, including 2.5GbE networking!

TerraMaster D4-300 | $34 off

A DAS is different from a NAS in that it doesn’t have an operating system, you can only have one person access the storage drives at any given time, but it keeps costs low and is great for single users.

Best NAS drive deals

To make the most of your NAS enclosure, you need at least one HDD. I’ve rounded up the best NAS drives out there that happen to be discounted. These are specifically designed for use inside servers and NAS. You could get away with using a cheaper desktop-class drive, though I’d always recommend NAS storage for continuous operation and enhanced reliability.

Seagate IronWolf 10TB | $20 off

We’re big fans of Seagate’s IronWolf series of NAS hard drives. Like WD Red, they’re specifically designed for connected storage.
