Thanks for taking the time to come here.

i need you input

i have bought four 6TB WD blue drives from amazon (new condition)

the price was very good (i think)

99 x 4 dolars + 60 dolars shipping and tax fees

i was thinking of using a raid1 setup with a simple 2 bay NAS (6tb volume)

but we know that blue drives aren't designed to work on a server 24x7.

so i ask you guys should i make a computer with a raid1 configuration on linux and use it as a server or should i buy a pre built NAS on this case?

for now i want to be able to access this server only on my home network

thank you

Buy a Synology. I've had experience with them all, and all I use now is Synology.
