What's more, USB flash drive and hard drive are easily damaged and get lost. How about storing and uploading DVDs to Cloud like iCloud, Dropbox for easier viewing on iPhone iPad Android computer? Many criticized for its safety issue and monthly charges. All the embarrassment is gone with a NAS. NAS is your private cloud drive and media server with capability to store thousands of DVDs, meantime, it has no limits on when and where you can access your DVD collections on NAS as storage like XBMC and Boxee do via iPhone, iPad, Android devices, game consoles, TVs.

But you should know NAS has limits before you decide to copy DVD collections to NAS. A NAS device is not cheap and a bit complicated to start with for not tech-minded users. Even if it's easy to rip DVD to NAS media server, it's not easy to manage the ripped DVD files without third party help. And some content might not be compatible with streamers. Users can setup Plex media server or Roku media server, which are the most popular media servers, to reduce bandwidth requirements, manage, transcode and play ripped DVD movies on NAS.
