I have this version but added a SSD drive, works brilliantly under the tv. Kodi and all the web browsing tv players work excellent. software like ableton and Android device manager will work but can be slow at times... gaming I've had football manager working great, telltale games run fine, newer games even Duke nukem on low settings struggled a bit and cities skylines works on low settings but crashes a lot! rocksmith works great on it too...

well worth it for the money I think

​yeah just take the top off and then there's a spot to put an extra drive in. mine has the SSD and a hard drive both in active.

loads of info on the old thread with guides how to transfer windows onto the ssd

Makes me sad that this is still one of the limited models you can get. Skylake version is too much to ask for I guess.

Hi OP/chrisredmayne

I'm unable to find the exact information. Some sites say this has 2 hard drive slots, others quote 3. Can you confirm if my info is correct?

There is one slot deep inside the drive, which is already installed with a hard drive. Then, on the outside of the system is 2 additional slots?

I want to verify whether the preinstalled drive is using one of the outer slots, just in case.

​im pretty sure it has 3 spaces for drives but this version only allows you to use two of them. to install a second drive you just have to open the white top and the space is there, you don't have to go any further into the case

2 empty drive slots that are readily accessible as soon as the plastic lid is removed from its base. The hard drive that comes installed within it is buried inside the unit though so a lot harder to get at that one (so it can take 3 drives in total)

@chrisredmayne I managed to find a video a few hours I posted and it had a guy going very deep for the third slot. Still, thanks for confirming -- I'll have to see when it arrives

@feed_me_chocs thanks very much for verifying, this is nice to know. That means I can have a handy little 6TB media box, assuming I don't need to go deep inside (in conflict with chrisredmayne's info, I'll just have to see when it comes)
