I had one of these, was useless.

No NTFS support, so no downloading Full HD MKV format movies (or any other files above 4GB for that matter) .
And BT download speed was incredibly slow. Kicked off a download on this and my PC (exactly the same download). PC was hitting 600Kb+, while the stand alone would barely go over 10Kb.

Transferring files accross also took an age.

Unfortunately had exactly the same problems with a couple of other similar devices. Ended up buying a Buffalo Linkstation NAS box with BTsupport, which has since worked perfectly. It may cost a hell of a lot more, but at least it does what it's supposed to do.

That would be fine, just about the right amount of time for a couple of films to finish downloading too :-D .

My case was slightly different, my reasonably high spec gaming PC isn't doing my wallet, or the environment any favours. So spending a fair bit on a BT enabled NAS box was a must.

getting a bt enabled nas box is only around £50... for a 320gb buffalo linkstation..

Hi!
These things are cheap and cheerful and in alot of situations are good enough. I used to have one set up as a NAS server which allowed the 3/4 PCs and 2 xboxs round the house to share media and have a remote backup service (backups were scheduled overnight if / when the PCs were left on.)

However the thing was very, very slow for file transfers (and mine didn't have printer support either.) So I've replaced it with a stripped down cheap PC running XP and hopefully not requiring too much power.

The price seems OK providing you know the limitations of what you're getting....

Regards

Kevin

I have one of these. Its in a cupboard somewhere.

This things causes network problems. It dropped the throughput on my LAN but 30-40%.
The device also hangs regularly, even with the latest firmware installed.

mmm... after some more googling, this does appear to have some "issues".and is probably not for the faint-hearted... However it should support NTFS out of the box. Were you running the original firmware ? There is a thriving community of folk that are using/developing this with Snake OS which seems to be a huge improvement, both in performance and features including BT encryption (tho still to understand why one would need this - probably best not to ask:whistling:)

I just got meself a 1.5tb HDD for the PC, decided not to install it, and was looking for a cheap NAS enclosure, and came across this from a previous HUKD post. Still think its probably worth it , so have ordered one anyway.

YMMV :viking::... jus like the smiley s'all.!
HNY to you all!

Where can you get it for £50?

i cannot confirm the reputability of such place though. you can easily rip out the hd and replace with a bigger one, install linux, or twonky (for streaming media to ps3 (i think) and other devices)

there were also selling at ebuyer for 49.99 but they arent there anymore
