Seagate ST8000VN004 IronWolf 8TB SATA Hard Drive for NAS w/ 7200RPM 6Gb/s 256MB Cache £205.12 @ Broadbandbuyer

There are 4 different model variations of the HC520. The one inside the WD Black D10 is the worst of the 4.


That doesn't seem that great? You could have had brand new 12TB HC520 with a 3 year warranty for £180 inc. shucked from WD Black D10 drives in the past couple of weeks.


NAS drives have a feature to work more reliably when used in a hardware RAID set in a server (e.g. in a data center). By hardware RAID I mean the server motherboard has a dedicated RAID chip. 90% of consumer NAS do not have this, they have software emulated RAID so there is no benefit.


If that’s the case then what’s so special about a ‘nas’ drive compared to any other drive?


If it has a case fan like a PC then yeh. 7200rpm can get toasty.

DrayTek Vigor 130 ADSL2+/VDSL Modem £80.23 delivered @ Broadbandbuyer£80.23
For anyone looking to replace your ISPs crappy router. The DrayTek Vigor 130 is an ADSL and VDSL modem with an Ethernet connection; it is not a router but a true ADSL/VDSL Ethern… Read more

I believe there will be no further firmware updates to the OpenReach modem




I find the AC Lite very reliable, it runs for months and months without issue, the performance is reliable on 2.4 and 5Ghz - obviously location is key to getting best out of these and they need an ethernet connected to the supplied PoE adaptor that connects to your modem router. Initially I found it complex to setup, you can use a phone app (that's easy to setup) or install and use the unfiy server software that does much more but really needs to run on a PC 24/7 to get the best of out it (I have a mini PC running all the time). It's a "pro-sumer" product and requires a little network skill compared to home devices like the BT or TP Link mesh systems. I see Draytek do their own mesh wifi that can integrate with some modem routers but not sure they're that reliable.


Thanks. How do you get on with the AC Lite? Was starting to look at the DrayTek WAP's and then basically just use the modem /router without wi-fi and connect a separate WAP, as several of you seem to have done. Then most of the heavy lifting will continue to be done through the hard-wired network. Only a couple of phones, a laptop and occasionally iPad in use at same time on wi-fi. Just looking to keep good coverage without a large drop off in speed with increasing distance. The DrayTek 2926ac apparently does NOT perform well in this regard. (and possibly the others??) Obviously need to do some more research. Good job I didn't just pull the trigger! Thanks again.


If you're using some external wifi access points like the Unify AC Lite or such, then I think it's to ensure that roaming between access points works nicely, for me, I placed the one Unify AC Lite wifi access point in the middle of the house for best signals which is all I need....and the Draytek (mine is the 2762N version without AC wifi) sits up in a bedroom acting as modem / router... it works very well and no need to complicate things with 2 differing wifi systems in place. If I want to extend coverage I'll add another unify access point probably....although I guess I could use the Draytek but doubt a device would nicely roam between wifi systems.

Ordered, thanks :)


Not sure it would be worthy of a new deal, but the AFi-R is at a pretty decent price at Lambdatek for £124.82.


Heat added decent find. I would expect the older mesh systems to start dropping in price with wifi6 and the next gen versions being released.


I think, considering the difference in pricepoint (especially at this price point), the reviews are still very favourable to the product. Another interesting point, and one relevant to me, the Instant sets remote node can do Eth backhaul, whilst the HD mesh points cannot... swings and roundabouts given the lesser radio it has, but for 95% people the AC1200 2x2 shoudl be more than enough. The AFi-R (which is the bigger standalone device) is around about £130+, and the AFi-INS-R (which is the standalone Instant device) is £89+. You can keep on adding these standalones to the kit, but you cant combine kits...


Yeah, but your kit is the AFi-HD.... the reviews for this particular bit of kit (which is a somewhat cut down version) don't seem very good in comparison.

Are you using these two kits separately or have you managed a way to merge them together? I have a second one on order but have just read that they would not work together which is extremely disappointing.


Quick update - I got mine delivered on Tuesday & am extremely happy with it. The base unit is very stylish & Apple-looking and the mesh devices are fairly unobtrusive. Connection speeds are amazing and it has been rock solid so far. It would be nice if they also had a web interface for fiddling about with the settings but the app is actually very good. The only problem I have had is that 2 Sonoff switches out of 5 have refused to connect.


You can get an old UAP (2.4GHz only) on ebay for around 30 quid so it's a cheap and easy way to increase coverage where the 5GHz band isn't too important.


Cheers didn't know that.


You can run the Unifis in wireless repeater mode - I have a UAP connected wirelessly to an AC-LITE, it was pretty easy to set up via the controller.

good os but poor hardware. so slow. try ds116 for a snappier solution. more ££££ but worth it


Have one of these 1tb version use it to watch movies on my tv excellent and extremely reliable NAS highly recommended


I use mapped drive as it's easier for wife and kids to use. I have a full back up on a removable drive done once a week. And a second removable back up of the really important stuff. E.g documents and photos. Overkill but worst case I nuke computers and diskstation and lose very little


Cannot recommend synology enough. I've had a ds210j for about 6 years and it's superb for all the above reasons. took the time to clean about 2 inches of dust off the fans and it still runs quiet.


Don't have it as a mapped drive in that case, most ransomware will encrypt that as well! Use ftp or make sure you have an offline backup of this too!

Yeah it depends on what you want to do with them. They are ok for the price and for home use but in a corparate/congested area I wouldn't use them. As with anything wireless it depends on the rf environment around them.


Sorry to hijack, but sort of relevant : Are relatively cheap Cisco enterprise WiFi units such as you find on eBay, useable by normal humans at home? Or do they all need some proprietary controller in order to operate? If they can be used reasonably easily, then to me this is the only real competition for Ubiquiti at this price. (I bought a couple of Cisco 7965s for very cheap off eBay once. Great phones, but really hard work to get operating, running SCCP on PiaF etc. It was fun but I never want to do something like that again, if you know what I mean.)


Thanks. Is it dual band 2.4/5 GHz?


I've got the UAC Pro, and am delighted with it, absolutely solid, it's as reliable as using a cable, just not always as fast of course. I'd happily recommend it to anyone. I'll never go back to cheap domestic wireless modem/router combos now.


...But that doesn't really apply to using a couple at home, or in a small office, where they're most likely going to work absolutely fine, and be at the kind of budget that those places can afford. And I doubt a corporate buyer would be looking on HUKD for these :D

as people have said this is a 1 bay only device, you can plug an external USB hard drive in though and it'll automatically keep a back up on it.


Surely some kind of witchcraft.


RAID1 with one disk?


You'll need a 2-bay Synology box, like the DS215j.


Great little device, use mine all the time. The read and write speeds are better than advertised using WD red drives. Recommend you go RAID 1 with dual redundancy, then you've got very few worries about losing data!

i have a synology...if i buy a microserver can i also have teamspeak on it ......or use as a gameserver ?


Unavailable, please expire.


Jouster What software do you use for that? I thought power consumption was greater doing power rather than letting disks run idle? Or does it depend on number of disks and machine power? Thanks


I need a new NAS as mine is a bit old now but I am going to take the advice further up and use the HP Microserver I already have (and hardly used) as my next NAS. You dont need an OS as mentioned before to use a a HP Server as a NAS as there is a very good one for free called FreeNAS. Which can baciaclly boot and run off a USB stick.

Western Digital WD40EZRX Green 4TB SATA Hard Drive w/ Intellipower 6Gb/s 64MB Cache - £97.16 Delivered @ Broadband Buyer£97.16
Just bought 4. Cheapest I can find. comes with 3 year warranty.

My 4 arrived today and upon checking the warranty on WD's site they all expire in August next year! They have a manufacture date of Jul 2014 so guess they actually have 2 years warranty which is what oem drives come with according to their site. Have emailed broadband buyer.


I was talking about after sales, NOT just sales. WD used to be brilliant. They're about as far from "brilliant" as it could be, NOW I'm also well aware (as are most people) about 7200 being best. SSD are even better, too Greens are mainly used as storage anyway


It's not nonsense...for eco reasons (green) they didn't use lead, so the corrosion is welcome. I'm using many different disks in our servers, so I have experience which disks last and which not.


Yeah cos that extra 1800rpm will really make a difference when opening/ saving a file.


Well that is wrong, WD are still the market leader for hard disks and sell more than Seagate. WD revenue is also higher. Seagate make a tiny bit more profit per drive than WD though green drives are rubbish though. good way to slow your pc down, better off with a WD Red or WD Black or maybe a Seagate 7200 drive

I dunno, I haven't tried streaming from it yet - I'm still copying stuff over to it atm. Was getting about 3MB/sec over wireless and 10MB/sec wired. Not sure if that's good/acceptable or not (am a noob at this too), or what the limiting factor is, but I would guess it's plenty for streaming a movie.


Thanks for the info! I'm a bit of a NAS noob, how good would this unit be to use as network storage for all my media and files? I would want to access the drives from a Raspberry Pi running XBMC and also map them to my desktop PC. I read a lot about these cheaper NAS boxes having sub-standard read/write speeds, but how much does this matter in the real world? Are they so slow that I couldn't watch a 1080p movie on the Pi? Or is the problem just for people who want to do frequent large file transfers like full PC back ups? Thanks again!


thx, just checked the manual, you were right. :)


It's set as RAID 1 by default (or mine was).

Had a look around and cant seem to find anything with 600Mbps, passthrough, gigabit and wifi. you could buy these homeplugs and for the wifi element you could perhaps use this? it extends wifi through powerline- Zyxel 3in1 Powerline wifi extender another option would be if you have a spare router with gigabit port lying around, buy a gigabit switch (£10-15), connect that to one of the homeplugs, then connect your old router to it and configure it as an access point, to provide the wifi element. Hope this helps


Am looking for the above spec (gigabit port + pass-thru) but also with wi-fi access point at one end. Can anyone help? Thanks
