[Discuss] Setting up a home cloud

I'm looking to replace my current desktop system with a local cloud
storage. I certainly can use my old desktop system, but it's power usage
is quite high. My thinking right now is to buy one of the commercial
systems, such as WD My Cloud, Synology, QNAP, Drobo.

I plan to use my laptop as my primary computer, and use the NAS or Cloud
device for storage for things like downloading and storage of large
files I don't need for portability. Back up my wife's laptop, et. al.
So, low power consumption is a major factor.
