Stick with APC CS models. I have used CS500 and CS650 and both works alright. Connect the data cable (one end RJ50, the other end USB-A connectors) between the NAS and your UPS.

Update:

If you are using an UPS, you will also want to get one of these


What you want is to get the C13/C14 connector set. On the right of the image above shows C14 male. You don't need this for the APC CS UPS unit. You need the C13 female connector. It looks pretty similar to the device on the left. You also get a power strip and cut away the connector and wire to the C13 female connector. Connect to the UPS so that you can provide backup power for your router/switch and your ONT unit (or ADSL modem)

When your main power is interrupted these devices will continue to function for awhile to allow your NAS to notify you over email that your main power is down or back online.

I uses Pushover to get push notification on my smartphone.
That's helpful. Thanks a lot.

BTRFS has higher overheads. So need to factor that in

In my point of view, you should.

Thanks for the replies. The only feature I am looking at is data protection as I am home user. I do not require snapshots and quotas features of BTRFS.

I did some research and the information I gathered was that BTRFS was stable with RAID 1 and not that stable with other RAIDs. Not sure if this is still the case.

Stability is to be tested over time and extensive usage. Unless you are an enterprise user whom has all the bells and whistles needs and protection with good backup and redundancies practices, you are better off on stable solution like ext4.

If you are only using NAS as a storage, btrfs wouldn't make a lot of differences to you. Quotas feature are already available even if you are using ext4.

Even in year 2016, we still getting a lot of discussions on the stability of btrfs, well i wouldn't consider this a good sign of stability, at least not from the perspective of someone whom doesn't do kernel and filesystem development.

Thank you, I think I will stick to ext4 then.
