Nice little unit for those that don't want to spend a small fortune getting a set up together. It's for the enclosure only (No drives) If you already have some decent drives to add in, then it looks like a decent option just now.

Thought it was worth a share, anywhoo. Delivery is free on this as well

i'm a bit dubious in buying from box. they don't offer returns even on DOA stock, unless you've been to the manufacturer first

the reviews aren't appealing

Plex? for the trans-coding I mean
"users can choose from RAID (Linear/0/1) support"

Linear RAID? Do they mean JBOD?

Not sure it can run Plex... Plus the reviews on amazon are pretty poor

for 100£ I had a SH server from ebay, with drives included. thow in a stick with Xpenology and run as good as an synology system. maybe even better if you get a "decent" CPU.
Can anyone who has used this give an honest review? I used to have a D-Link DNS-320, which was good for its time; how does this compare to that and today’s options (as times have changed so much)?

Is that even legal?
It's in their returns policy, supposedly to speed things up and for newbies , if is worth challenging in court is another matter but i believe ebuyer have a similar approach, 6mth warranty on items, after that it's back to the manufacturer to sort stuff out
I’ve recently purchased this with twin 3TB drives and used the RAID1 option to give mirrored storage. I was impressed with the build quality and ease of setup. It may have some average reviews but it works extremely well with a MAC setup.

Doesn't matter if they have it tattooed on their ass cheek it doesn't change consumer law.
They are 100% legally obligated to accepted DOA returns, the contract of sale is between you and them and consumer law dictates that they must either fully refund or exchange products that arrive faulty. This INCLUDES any postage to return the DOA product, the buyer should not be a PENNY out of pocket.
Come on guys, know your consumer rights, don't let these assholes fob you off!
