i wouldnt risk waiting if you want one

bought - paid £12 for sat delivery

nice price drop

I have the Zyxel N365 NAS, is this a better option? use it for storing media etc and streaming to tv, xbox etc.

What does it differently to a NAS?

are these noisy? louder than an xbox slim?

I think NL40 is better in terms of power consumption. Comparison below

Modern NAS appliances do so much more than just serving files. Get this if you like tinkering and have the time. There is educational benefit at the end.

Thanks for the gentle push 'littletime' (_;)

Bought one. Might not need it but getting in early and can always ebay it.

Excellent price! Mine is on 24/7, so the N40L is fine for me (power consumption). Running SABNZB/Sickbeard/Couchpotato, rarely have to browse for things anymore

Typical just after I've spent tons on a QNAP. Very happy with the Qnap though so will stick it out as I don't fancy spending days configuring more software or learning *nix.

Cracking price for those that do fancy it though so heat added.

My experience of NAS is that they are very slow.. typically they have low ram and slow processors. I very much doubt you could find any 4 bay NAS (although I hve 6 disks in my N40L) that would perform as good as this, never mind as cheap as this.

If you want to spend £100 on a NAS, this is a no brainer, unless of course space is a real issue, but the footprint of this is ver small anyway...

Bought one to replace my N40L.

I just put windows 7 on it, works fine! If I could afford it I'd have had a QNAP though....

do I need any brackets etc - to put additional HDDs in the Optical bay (over and above the 4) ?

if I am to use 4 HDDs (or 5 maybe) - how many additional SATA cables do I need and what sort of length ? (I 'm not sure how many are already in the box)

thanks

Thanks

I slipped an SSD in the slot under the optical bay.. tight fit, but it wont go anywhere.. then used a mobile drive rack in the optical which allows me to hotswap bare drives. I had to route the external esata connection back into the server for the drive bay. The SSD used the optical drive cable.

To achieve this, I did have to use the modded bios for the N40L, which unlocks the speeds imposed on the optical sata connection... Dont know if there is one available for the N54L

Fantastic deal

Quick Question please how does the cashback system work? Don't want to miss any tick boxes...!

The N40L is fantastic - I've got one of them. This is a great price too. Bang on Linux and something like Amahi and you're good to go.

Bit of a learning curve but nothing too scary!

I know the feeling.
I bought one about a year ago with good intent, and after a flurry of installing things it's been on my top shelf unpowered since then.

no additional anything needed the screws and alan key are on the inside of the door! i think you may need a sata if you opt for x 5 HDD. go you you tube and search for n54l unboxing

What is a microserver? How does it differ from a standard laptop/computer?

Presumably these will only accept half height expansion cards?

Well I was going to hold out to see the price of the gen8 but at that price I couldnt resist and have finally ordered one

Billy bonus mine has free next working day delivery which is Tuesday given the bank holiday. I haven't ordered anything for quite some time and I do recall a "we miss you please come back offer of free delivery" so I guess that was on my account still

I was planning on getting a NAS, mainly for storage do you think this would be the better option? Obviously I would have to get some larger drives for it

Been thinking about the NSA325, at £71.98 then this comes up! Why should i go for this instead? someone please enlighten this poor confused soul!

Is it 4 3.5 inch drives it can hold? Does it also have room for an ODD? Any idea of how many SATA sockets there are on the MB? Sorry for all of the questions and thank you in advance for any answers.

I just my £80.01 refunded by Ebuyer for the one I bought last week. How very sensible of the company to do this rather than have me send mine back under the Distance Selling Regulations and order another at the lower price. Very impressed with them! And, a server for £99.98 after cashback. Just like old times!
