4% Quidco also. Hot deal.

Care pack (UR482E) appears to be £121.18 inc VAT, with £76 HP cashback this'll come to £45.18. HP say it should cost £20 here.

Thanks for addition ... I referred to TCB as I don't use Quidco.

Original Poster

TCB was amended to reflect the correct calculations without delivery...so final cost after HP Cashback and after TCB is £78.96

Have you checked with either HP or PCWorld that these units ARE UK sourced and therefore eligible for the cashback?

I ordered mine from PC World business last time around, I received the cashback last week. Currently waiting for cheque to clear

So they are an authorised reseller!

Just be aware if you order from a business site (rather than a consumer site) then you are not covered by SOGA only by the companies standard business term & conditions.

Ordered the max [5] of these on another deal, paid, debited, sent off paperwork... NOW I get an email to say sorry "limited to 1 per purchase!" so off to PCWB to see if they will do the same if paid online!

Oh and "steve - md" from you know where, if you are reading these "HP Server" threads on HUKD, how about you sort your compliance team out as you are an *official hp reseller* or are you???

Really? Interesting if that's true. Do you have an thing to back it up?

Excellent price, as NAS alternative.

The Sale of Goods Act (SOGA) provides protection for customers … The Sale of Goods Act (SOGA) provides protection for customers (consumers) - the same rights do not apply to a business buying goods or services from another business.This is true of consumer protection law generally, for example Distance Selling Regulations, Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations, and Doorstep Selling Regulations. Businesses are expected to be able to negotiate their own contracts to give them suitable protection and or remedies in case of a breach of contract.



Went through this with a client site we did a little while ago.. it is in fact true! :-(

The contract law that applies between retailers and manufacturers/wholesalers is not the same as the contract law that applies between retailers and their customers.

I've got the N36l. Is there any point of upgrading?

Bought £5.93 tracked via quidco.

No, I've got both, just a slightly faster processor, you would not notice the difference in speed

Do i need to order this from in-store or online? Also what name do you use if you don't own a business?

You will if you want to transcode. According to the plex site this will transcode, on the fly, up to 720p. Other variants of this server cannot.

dammit. the website won't accept any of my credit cards. it keeps saying phone up the team. 4.2% is too much to lose for us tight fisted hduk

How quick is the boot up time on these things.. Tempted everytime these come out to replace my media pc!

Nice deal, I've gone for this one.

Think generally they're meant to be left on.
But boot time would depend on OS and storage media.

My N40L which has a debian install running under ESXi transcodes 720p using Serviio perfectly.

Depends. Install Windows server on the HDD it'll be a few minutes. Install a minimal debian install to an SSD, seconds.

Either way, it's designed to be left on - so boot time isn't really a problem.

Awesome! Thanks for that tip, Will definitely use ESXi, do you just have the one VM or many? Do you find much of a performance hit?

Datastore access can be a bit slow, but I boot all VMs from a datastore on an SSD which solves the problem. I have 4 3TB drives RDM'd to unraid, and then a debian and windows install running 24/7, and a couple of other VMs I boot on demand. Given that ESXi is free (although I have a more functional license from work) you can always try it, and it you prefer native performance, switch over to a normal distro :).

The limiting factor for me is the CPU when it comes to network transfers. Saturating the 1Gbps connection uses about 50% of the CPU power (networking is ridiculously CPU expensive). So if 2 people try to pull 1Gbps from 2 VMs (multiple NICs/load balancing, but limited to 1Gbps per VM) at the same time things get a bit slow. But that rarely happens.

Interesting, unraid (or zfs), debian and perhaps windows server are exactly what I want. Nice to know I can still get gigabit speeds even with a VM.
Hopefully I wont notice any speed drop when doing par+unrar from sabnzbd on this vs my htpc.

oh!.. missed it..

anyone knows more places with the same kind of offer, could you please share it? TIA!

Thanks Jasee.

shouldn't this deal be expired now??

No longer expired. They are showing in stock and i was able to place an order.

Yep, showing 10+ in stock and was able to place an order.

I've had one of the older ones running for years, now filled up with 2TB western digital green drives running Ubuntu server.
Fantastic machine can't fault them.


Edited by: "TC!" 12th Sep 2013

Even cheaper than the Box deal earlier in the year. Thanks OP!

Anyone's shipped yet? Mine has this on the order details page: ORDER: PCWBC: NULL or is that normal?

I think that just means you didn't enter your own order reference. Mine says the same.

Price went up as I was checking out! Expired (again).

Now 297.99 inc VAT

No change in order status for me and still shows expected ship date today. Hope they don't cancel the order!

Anyone's shipped yet?

Mine is still at the received stage, placed order before 3pm 2 days ago and was wanting it installed tonight!
