I’m thinking about buying a Vero 4K to use with a large USB3 desktop hard drive (mains powered).
Is USB2 on the Vero 4K (potentially) a performance bottleneck (for the largest 4K files)?
As per this thread, am I correct in thinking the hard drive will always be powered on?
The drive is quite noisy so I want to hide it away in a drawer, but I don’t want it to be always-on. So right now I keep it outside and switch it off when required. In any case it will be close to where my desk is (other side of room), so noise is distracting.
It also sounds like this would be the case if I turned into a NAS, since the Vero 4K will always be on. Is that right?
Power usage is not the problem. I just don’t want it the drive to be running 24/7 (especially when I am at my desk).
- Can I ask if an updated Vero 4K is on the horizon, since it’s been out for over a year?
