I wondered what had happned
Good first post BTW

With the 4 extra USB 2.0 Host ports you can use your standard USB … With the 4 extra USB 2.0 Host ports you can use your standard USB printer as a Network printer and also add extra hard drives or other storage devices to increase the network storage capacity quickly.



4 extra USB ports is 2 more than you'd usually find on a NAS drive, great deal.

Cant see any details on if this had anything in the way of power management, spinning down USB drives etc

Noisey fans ( at least on mine) due to it running hot but its a good device. Although at £90 this is getting close to the price I would consider a readynas duo at and wish I had bought it for its raid functionality.

Word of warning - its an IDE device which means that replacing or upgrading the HDD will become increasingly difficult and expensive as IDE gradually disppears. A few quid more on an SATA euivalent would probably make more sense.

yeah, it doesn't sound like that great a deal to me. £90 for 400gb IDE. if it was SATA at least you could stick a 1.5tb drive in, but it still makes it expensive. the usb ports sound handy, but you can get usb to network dongles for about £20 these days, thus make a 1.5tb external drive a NAS for about the same money. the £230 RRP is a bit like saying a 10gb HD drive was £100 and now only £10. all old tech falls in price over time to the point that it's worthless
