Nice drive and as its SATA you can upgrade the internal drive a lot easier than most of the NAS drives around at the moment that still use the older IDE drives.

Well worth getting for the price.

Don't confuse this with the more common USB drive - A NAS attaches directly to your router & can be accessed by any PC on your network. Good way of having a central store for backup, or for sharing files such as movies. Only problem is that in 6 months time, 500Gb will be a small drive!

Good price for a NAS. Heat added.

Cold... AGAIN! :-(

Last time someone posted this recently it was cheaper in Comet - it still IS! £79.99 to collect or delivered…IVE
