Thought this was good for an entry level bit of kit. It has a capacity of upto 20TB which for me is fine. No Drives are included with this, but there have been some pretty good NAS drives posted recently. Thinking about getting a multimedia server and just thought this looked pretty good at the price point.

    I'd personally pay the bit extra and go for a 2-bay Synology model.

    I have no knowledge of this unit but it's priced dangerously close to Synology. I'd recommend doing for research on whether it's worth getting this over a Synology.
    Ive had one of these and its quite a good basic nas.Was £99 when it first came out though.Still a decent bit of kit
    What's good about the synology box is not just the hardware, but the OS that comes with it. For non very technical people like myself, it's so much easier to use. Coming from a couple of microservers, the Synology box is like pressing a button
    In all honesty right now I'd recommend the WD My Cloud EX2100 (or EX4100) NAS if you can afford it as it's the only NAS I'm aware of that has native hardware transcoding for Plex Media Server.
    GOne up to £134.99 now.
    By the way thank you for posting. I did a bunch of research and this looks like a great basic unit. Good for a first timer. I just bought it at 134.99.
    Better to go for known brand like QNAP or Synology

    so what is this meaning? I mean seriously - what is this? ".... has native hardware transcoding for Plex Media Server." try and consider those that may not know NAS as you do?
