£44.67 with postage. You should list it with the postage as well. It's still not bad but only 3 months warranty so not sure I would go for it.
#2
Repost I think, but very good price.
#3
Yeh, a re-post.

I got one of these last week, and mine looks fine. Have it all set up fine. Apparently, the casing may be second-hand, but the drives inside are all brand new. Not opened mine, so can't verify.

Just looking to see if I can replace the original NAS software with something more interesting.
#4
Mines been despatched. Perfect for hosting my music from (hopefully). Figured it's a good price for what ya getting.

I think I want this - but am confused as to what it does. Is it basically like a NAS on the cheap?
What I would like is somewhere central to store some files - and then connect to it like a network (like you might do in an office). I've got a network set up via homeplugs - so guessing would just plug this into them and then it would show up as a drive?

Are they low power like a NAS so can leave on 24/7?

Any help appreciated!

As far as your first question - yes, it is basically a hard drive that plugs into either your router, and can be accessed by other PCs on the same network or PC via USB (not both at the same time)

Not sure if its low power...
#7
It should be low power and it also has a idle sleep mode that can be set from 5 mins to 30 I think.

Ordered one last night.

Misco phone me this morning to cancel the order, the product is no longer available :x

Good customer service though as I was refunded immediately.

gutted - this would have been perfect for me! thanks for the answer - rep added

Hmm, not sure if it is just mine, but my LAN connection to the drive doesn't seem to last more than a few seconds... not sure why that is - anyone else experiencing something similar?
#11
Sorry for double posting - but I have a copy of the latest firmware for this NAS, if anybody wants it. It fixes many of the issues, and is now rock solid.
