Great piece of kit and a fantastic price (normally well over £150) so why cold?

why cold?



Probably because they don't know what NAS is, and think it is a USB External drive!

I got this about 6 months ago and it cost me just over £200 :roll:

Good bit of kit and very good price :thumbsup:

A question for those who already have one: Is it really near silent? Does it have a fan?

Link isn't working.

Good drives - I bought one 6 weeks ago for £150

It's almost silent - I don't even notice it's on.

brilliant find, thanks so much op
been keeping eye on this kit for a while, and this is the cheapest ive seen so far
although i dislike the samsung drive inside and heard of the appealing customer service story from buffalo, but think again - a QNAP very basic empty enclosure cost more than this already! I think it worth to try my luck

Does this have a bittorrent/download client like the QNAP ones?

According to play.com same part number is a NAS drive, can someone confirm? (LS-CH1.0TL)

Jonsend,
Yes! This is the cheapest NAS included a HDD with torrent download clients
heres some more details

This seems very cheap for a media server though.

it was £116.94 yesterday and I am sure it was only an hour or so ago.

maybe a misprice or maybe they realised they are selling them to cheap

EliTom

hope they still honor my order, amazon sell them for 131.29 delivered

Right just to get this striaght, will this automatically back up the files on my PC? (after setting it up etc)

This can be done via wireless so it can sit in a cupboard out of the way instead of my already clutter PC desk?
Sorry for being a bit thick, its just that I now need a solution to where to store my files safely. I lost my hard drive with a lot of photos etc on it and I don't want it to happen again!!!

Used CBC myself only for pickups tho in sheffield. Pretty decent service, rang me when the items I wanted were going to be a day late to be shipped into their pickup location

You can get this from Amazon for the same price if this helps anyone: amazon.co.uk/Buf…FU/

got email saying out of stock and cancelled :-D
well, wont be using them again anyway

To start with it is pretty silent then after about 3 months you can hear it as fan makes more noise then every month after that it gets a little louder.

FWIW
125.34 Inc VAT from Scan (plus delivery if you don't get it free).

They were claiming they had over 200. I was toying with the idea of getting it from them last night, but then, when they pulled it from the Site, I ordered it from scan. Scan have always been sterling with me.

CBC are excellent. The company I work for use them as our preferred supplier.
