I’m about to buy an Odroid N2 Coreelec 4GB edition with eMMC. I’m packing together for my friend, who just bought a Panasonic 50" 4K HDR10+ TV.
We need a kind a storage, and I can’t decide about two options:
- a cheap one bay NAS (even used) + a 4TB WD Red 3.5" HDD, over LAN with SAMBA or NFS
- a USB 3 portable HDD like WD MyPassport 4TB, 2.5".
The second would be easier, but I’m not sure if USB is reliable enough? He will download content to the drive and stream from that, connected only to the N2, and 4K content. Is MyPassport a safe way to go with Coreelec and N2?
