Network drive can support (so the box says) any capacity Sata drives, It holds 2 SATA Drives and has a gigabit connection (backwards compatible too but is unbelievably fast i was amazed) Has the ability of disc mirroring (so drive 1 and 2 have the same data for backing up encase one hard disc fails).

Includes Original Box, CD's, PSU, Item itself and backup software.
70 pounds del

2 Hard discs are 3.5" and are both 250GB SATA one is Maxtor the other is Western Digital both work good
26 pounds each del.

Will get more info as required or requested

I've been looking at reviews of the network drive and it did not work with Vista until a firmware update solved the problem. Originally only supported Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Has your been working on Vista? And how easy is it to swap drives, and how fast is it for them to be recognised by all computers on the network? And finally, may be a stupid question, but accessing this on your network doesn't use any bandwidth allowance right? It is just like accessing a drive on your computer...?

I have only used it with XP i can test it with a vista pc if you require though it does just seem an update on there website and it should work (if you would like me to test it i can on my sisters laptop(but she never needed to access my files so was never tested before)). The interface is does so that you install the software and it can create partitions on the drive and then add those partiitons to the 'my computer' section they are not seen as network drives but are instead seen as normal hard-drives (with netgears logo) i find alot easier this way. It is easy to swap the hard-discs in the item itself and then then run the software and tell it to add them (very very easy) and i think after the first time the software is told to add them it should auto add them each time the hard-drive is put back in the device (though i have not tried it myself i have found it easy to take out and put hard-disc back in and it run fine). With that to get all the computers to find them just run the software to add all the drives on each computer and it will find them every time afterward (i found it easier then setting up a network)

As far as i know there is no bandwidth allowance but i have never really checked into it but i have not experienced any and like mentioned before it is exactly like a pc hard-disc (unlike my buffalo one which shows as a network drive which i dont like as much)

Hope this clears everything up let me know if there is anything you want me to check more or test (running with vista)?

Thanks

Thanks for above - yes, I'd be interested to know if it runs with Vista, but tbh if I make an offer it will be after some further looking around at other options, and if I did make an offer I'd want to take the drive and the HDDs together for a competitive price. I need extra storage and have a couple of 250GB external drives in my scan basket to check out by Monday (today only prices). But this option might be better as it will give my wife easier access to media on her PC too. I'd also need to confirm the bandwidth thing though as we only have an 8GB monthly allowance now and it's always used...

I checked and it runs on Vista and works fine after i updated the firmware :thumbsup:
I would be happy to consider any offer and obviously would make a discount if buying the whole lot.
The bandwidth will not be affected (if you mean you internet limitation set by your ISP) the limitation should be on the ammount of data allowed to be sent over the internet and this sends it over your network so not affected unless you decide to access the data at work etc over the internet and then it would affect the bandwidth but as a normal network no it would not.

Thanks

Ok, great on both accounts. Right, can you give me an hour or two so to look around and think about my options before making an offer? Obviously if someone comes along with an offer you can't refuse in the meantime, you should accept it - but I don't want to be hasty until I'm sure it's the right thing for me. Can I ask how old they are and if still in warranty - any receipts? Thanks.

Sure let me know and i will try check on warranty though wont be able to do that for a little while, probably in half an hour i will know for sure :thumbsup:

The Nas drive was bought 28th Jan (though didnt use it for a few months due to thinking it was going to be harder to set up then i actually was lol) anyway will try and contact the company and see if i can get an invoice re-printed (all i have is ebay email and paypal receipt it was new when i got it from Novatech ebay store)
Checked the Maxtor and says 'Refurbished to Maxtor Spec.' and is dated 06 Feb 2006

Would you consider £90 delivered, for the lot?

Thanks - looking around now. :thumbsup:

WD HDD is 25th Oct 06 so i assume under warranty for another year (assuming its 3 years)
#13
Ok and thanks for that info too - I should have asked about the network drive really? How old is it etc?

Apols if I'm not back quickly tonight - finding it hard to concentrate as I only had 3 hours last night - screen is getting blurry!
#14
are you after anything trade-wise? :-)

ok thats fine reply when you can :thumbsup:
The drive works great just that i went back to my 300GB NAS Buffalo and 1tb in pc (I use to use the Netgear to watch videos on a laptop but now only use my main pc so the TB works fine and the buffalo for backing up data as its too slow for video) now its only used for back-up so this is really excess to me as said bought it at the end of January but only used it 4 or 5 months as didnt set it up that quickly after getting it. It has never failed me never crashed, never needed restarting, and never lost any data transferring onto or off of the device.

Hope that clears it up, if you want to know anything else let me know?

Thanks

jamhops - thanks for your patience, but I'm also considering a freecom 500GB network drive from scan now as well http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/500GB-Freecom-Network-Drive-10-100-LAN-and-USB2-External-Hard-Drive-(SATA). Although yours is better because it offers more flexibility - hot swapping and mirroring of drives - which may be safer in the long-run. So although the freecom is cheaper, I want to know more about the advans of your system. What about speed on this? Will I be able to play / stream movies stored on drives in this without any lag? We have a regular BT BB account btw, in case that makes any difference. And I can add 1TB drives later if necessary - there is no limitations to drive size right? Cheers.
#18
According to the box there are no limitations on hard-drive size and i have not found any on the www (searching no-one has mentioned any so i would assume as it says there are no limitation's which would make sense as it sets the partitions so if it where a problem it could see them as 2 500GB drives, So no limitations.

The speed is really fast if set up right as it is a 1000mb/s connection out the back of it and when i set it up right (as in with the rest of the network able to support its speed (though it is backwards compatible 10/100/1000mb/s) it was transferring quicker then a memory stick (and i honestly think it was on the gig's of video files but didnt rate it but it was very very quick). Though the link isnt working it does say the Freecom (10/100mb/s) one is 10% of the speed of the Netgear.

As you said it supports hot swapping (though it does work as i tried it i would recommend just pressing the button ejecting and putting new one in and re-powering it boots up pretty damn quick and the eject and power are next to each other, that is unless you see hot swapping in the manual though i have not seen it just to be on the safe side as it really isnt the same as turning off a pc due to shutdown being instant and reboot being very quick), mirroring drives, the fact that the other drive has the pc see it is a network drive this is seen as a normal pc drive which is more useful (and i assume if set up right may well be able to run some applications but it is alot easier to find browsing (though not tried them).

As i said unless you are accessing the files from work or another internet connection this will not use your bandwidth.

Hope that clears everything
btw. this system still sell for over £100 new (£116 at novatech (where i got it)) and that is without any drives, It is reliable unlike my other NAS

The Netgears speed is equivalent to this one:
http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=719111
(which only support the one installed drive and no mirroring hot swapping etc.)

Thanks

What would be your best price for the complete kit (considering i've already offered £90)?
#21
jamhops, thanks for all your patience and answering all the questions, but I think I'll just go with the Freecom unit actually. I know very little about all this stuff so think I'm probably better off buying the simpler option, and one that is new and in my name for warranty purposes. I'll back up the important files elsewhere instead of rerlying on the mirroring capability of your drive. Thanks again, and hope you don't feel you've wasted your time. Good luck with the sale :thumbsup:
#22
where are you based, could it be collected?

not after an ms charge and play kit (bnib sealed) for your 360 are you?

cheers,

The freecom does have warranty but i do think this is the simpler option, plug in hdd run software and that is about it. It really was alot easier to setup then my buffalo which i assume is what the freecom is like the netgear software finds it tells you the drives (you can partition them how you want though there is still simple parts to the software and if you want more advanced its there etc.) I mean i have never had to go into an IP interface (web browser type its all in the software (i like that))
