must take some time to work through the site

Looks a good price.

1 year warranty I think - Could this be opened up if the hard drive dies?

It will probably just have a SATA drive bunged inside. But whether you could open it up?

I want one

I'll ask santa.....I hope he's still around :p

i like it but would want one with 2 drives for BU

nice

Beware those that want to replace the drive please read the cnet review:

http://reviews.cnet.com/network-storage/lg-n1t1-nas-with/4505-3382_7-34117896.html

Mentions you cannot upgrade the drive and also contradictory to the above blurb add any additonal storage. It may be worth clarifying before purchasing otherwise though it is a good overall review.

Can I use this with my PSWiiX?
#13
A NAS is a great addition to your home network. However I wouldnt bother considering one that only takes a single drive. As they are on all the time (mine has not been switched off for over 18 months) the drives can fail which would be a disaster if you have all your music pictures etc on it. On a dual drive NAS with RAID this is not a problem as the data is copied onto both drives simultaneously.
#14
I've never rated raid systems. The cheap ones share the same psu, have the same model of drives, are being hit with the same voltage spikes etc. and when it comes down to it, usually die on the same day. This system is just fine.

Then you dont know much, the odds of total failure on a raid 1 set up both drives are slim, although if a drive did fail you would replace it straight away.
If you have data you need raid1 is a very safe and easy way to have constant back ups.

I like the look of this, however i the main reason id want a NAS with a dvd player is to be able to do headless automatic DVD rips! Can anyone confirm if this is possible as then it would be really useful combined with a media streamer

You would have to be real unlucky to have both drives fail on on the same day at the same time, to be honest. If you are that unlucky i can,t see the point in even going out.
#18
I agree raid is going to be useful, but remember it is not a backup solution on it's own. If you are concerned about the safety of your data you need to backup the raid device regularly too.
#19
There is a school of thought that would say RAID is for high availablity and not for backup. If you have a ReadyNAS for instance, and the RAID rebuild fails when you replace the drive, then you are stuffed without returing the kit to the manufacturer for recovery. Some NASes upon getting a new disk in them accidentally format the existing drive and all the data is lost.
If you value your data a NAS is not the complete answer (but better than nothing!).

If you go by that theory, then two of these single drive NASes mirroring using rsync or suchlike is better than an "eggs in one basket" multi-drive RAID box. Most NASes have a USB port so you can plug a USB drive into the NAS for backup.
And if you can have one off site then you'd have to be even more unlucky to lose everything!

By non-removable they just mean you have to take it to bits to do its not on a caddy they don't mean if the drive fails throw it out

I used 2 NAS'S 4drives in each RAID5 located in different buildings connected by fibre that was enough backup for tv shows in a school (clickview 247) one is live other backs up once a day perfect

I've given as much free advice on this as I am going to. If you want to know more, speak to my agent.
#23
Raid is great for automatic mirroring, but I archive all my really important stuff to a hdd kept in my garage, down the bottom of the garden!!

I don't feel I can justify the cost to a mirrored setup when lightning, a fire, or a dying psu can take them out just the same.
#24
How can the drive not be replaceable? I'd be surprised is the drive is not a regular commodity drive, with exactly the same SATA connections as any other of the shelf drive. No doubt the case will be screwed together, rather than molded around the drive. Even if it means removing some feet or covers to get at the screws, then you'll be able to open the case.

WD passport drives are supposedly non-replaceable, yet it is easy to open them and replace the drive.
#25
RAID 1 is perfectly fine if you choose a decent NAS e.g. Synology or QNAP etc. If you are unlucky enough to get a direct lightning strike on your NAS or you have a fire then you have more to worry about than your data. I haven't heard of a PSU failing in a NAS box and destroying hard drives, if it does happen to you then you just have to take it on the chin and accept you suck. In fact I've fixed countless PCs where the PSU has blown (especially E-Machines with BestTec PSUs, a.k.a. pure evil) and the hard drives have not failed.

If anyone has a list of NAS boxes where their PSU has failed leading to a RAID 1 total failure, please link me to them.

RAID 1 in a decent NAS box is pretty solid. Also backup some essential data to dropbox (2GB free) or sugarsync (5GB free) and you have things well covered. For everyone else worried about Lightning, flooding, alien attack, fires and having their data trampled by a heard of wild Buffalo, I suggest life is not for you so go and move to Switzerland.
#26
Usually a blown PSU doesn't do any extra damage, but a couple of months ago I had to fix a PC at my work which blew the PSU, motherboard, CPU and destroyed the hard drive all in one.

Not common but it does happen.
#27
Simple really, some of the following has been mentioned above but to make it clear....

RAID 0 is for maximising available space and increased speed.
RAID (1,5 and upwards etc) is for resilience, i.e. data remains available if 1 drive fails (or >1 drive in the higher RAID configs)

RAID is no substitute for backup - do not view mirrored drives as 'a copy of your data' . You need a separate backup regime to another media (NAS, PC HDD, DVD, Cloud etc) stored as far away from your original data as possible.

If you have no backup regime and rely just on your RAID then what happens when....
- You or someone else deletes some/all files on your NAS.
- Your NAS RAID controller screws up and scribbles junk over all your drives
- You have an electric fault that fries everything in the NAS
- You have a fire that destroys your NAS
- Someone steals your NAS

Some of the above may be unlikely but if you chose to take the risk then its up to you, cost vs risk is up to you to decide. I recently bought a single drive NAS that I'll locate in the attic and will use it as a mirror of what's on my PC. That ticks most of the boxes but I can still be stuffed by a fire.

been looking at building my own NAS (with my old pc) and have looked at freenas which looks good but unraid looks the business:

My brother is doing the same, good for recycling all your old drives into something useful. Not so good for power efficiency though - try to source low power components unless you don't care. My brother is building it with a mini itx board (D510MO) so he can run with a fanless psu to save power.
#31
does anyone know about any firmware hack for his device? eg. ssh access to internal linux console / optware support? thanks
#32
just found out it has transmission torrent client installed so that's good thing especially for file leechers (which basically should be ssh - hackable)... minus that is has just one HDD, but possibly after hack you could set up some nice cron job to run rsync (file copy tool) and backup the data onto usb attached storage. nice piece of kit ... thinking about replacing my Maxtor MSS2 ...
#33
Cant see anything on official site about burning dual layer dvds in the specs..

Id be surprised if it can't.

Anyone got it and can say?

@r41lblast

Any news on Optware for this? where did you find info saying SSH was possible?

Well I worked for a busy computer service company and this is what happens. Customers could never understand why they got complete failure, which is more common0 THAN YOU THINK. It's not unlucky, it's electronics. Maybe you wanna learn some.
