ALl it takes is a jump in technology to make this thing look very obselete

Hopefully people will get their asses into gear and make HVD affordable and well finish development of the primary format.

Also I think this is quite a bad deal as a 1TB disc on here costs about £130, so allyou need to do is buy 2 and an enclosure and you'll save about £80

But this is a NAS, its more than just two discs stuffed in an enclosure, you can just compare like that, what about the CPU and proprietary software installed etc etc. Go read up on the benefits and fetures of a NAS.

you would be better off with two WD 1TB NAS storage £149 each,
then at least you can backup your data between the two.

Just imagine you have 2TB on data and it goes pop :whistling:

You can make the same argument about any size of external storage.
You only buy a 2TB NAS because you have more than 1TB of data so your argument falls flat.
Backups are a separate issue and you wouldn’t typically use an expensive and very slow NAS as a backup device, a couple of eSATA external drives makes more sense.

That was not an argument !,
If you have two seperate drives at a (£50 saving) if one drive fails you would only lose half of your data.
#7
mate there's not a single drive in there, there's a couple so if one fails you have the other.

well at least I think there is isn't there? I haven't heard of a 2TB hdd being released.

Make your mind up.

With two drives, you can back up important data on each, resiliance!!!, I work in data recorvery and the amount of time people buy large drives, fill it up and then pop. Where are your backups !!! I forgot is always the answer.

I am not saying that each drive is used to backup each other up, only important data you do not want to lose. i.e photos etc.
Music / films / games can always be re downloaded etc Memories cant..
