Decent price, heat added.

Thanks OP, ordered

Note that the auto-upload to Flickr may not work anymore.
I have the slightly older model of this NAS and Flickr changed their API to support HTTPS connections only, the NAS was using HTTP.
Lenovo are promising a firmware update 'at some point'.

Apart from that it is a good price.

How quick is it to write data via network cable ?

Could this handle streaming two HD videos simultaneously?

Thanks ordered mine noticed it's cheaper than the 1TB version heat added

Good value considering a 2TB drive on it's own costs close to the asking price. The NAS itself is low-end and lacks power but will suffice for basic network file storage. There is no active cooling so I would be slightly concerned about the life of the HDD depending on how heavily you use it.

Anybody know the make & model of the drive inside? Very tempted due to the 3 year warranty.
Edit: to answer my own question, drive probably = Seagate ST2000DM001 according to http://iomega.nas-central.org/wiki/Category:EZ_Media

How good is it for streaming TruLife HD movies? I'm not talking about porn.

Those 60fps "movie clips" (cough cough!) look amazing!!

been pricing up NAS devices for the past month with nothing happenng in the way for price going down... ordered one two days ago with a drive and all ive seen since is damn deals for them.. irritating lol

Looking at the two reviews on Amazon, it appears to be rather slow. Was going to buy one until I saw those

It has 2TB Storage Capacity not a 2TB drive. I don't think it comes with a 2TB drive.

Yes, it has the drive. Hence there being a 1TB version as well.

Ordered thanks

How quiet is this?

Does anybody know if this NAS spins down the hard drive when there is no network activity going on and then spins it back up when it receives a ping?

Don't think too much, you might hurt yourself...

Good price but it's a 7200 RPM drive in a fanless body

I'd have preferred a quieter, cooler, less vibration prone 5400 RPM drive

I have another NAS at home and have tried it with both 7200 RPM and 540 RPM drives and there is a lot more vibration in the faster drives

For not much more than the cost of a 2tb drive this is scorching

only £5 cheaper then most places even ebay, but for what it is, and with a 3 year warranty it's a good deal

I get what you're saying but isn't ebay box.co.uk as well? Not to mention £5 is nearly 10% cheaper than elsewhere.

Ok i suppose as a basic file server but cant see this handling 1080p streams very well.

1080p video's going to be 40Mbit/sec tops. Given that the drive inside it will be able to max out the 1000Mbit network interface, I doubt the NAS will be the bottleneck. Even if you can't max it out, there's a hell of a lot of headroom between 40Mbit and 1000Mbit.

Pennies over £80 delivered for the 3TB version via Flubit.

Anyone know if this is compatible with the logitech squeezebox?

My buffalo linkstation seems to handle streaming 1080p with no issues at all, so, i dont see why this would have a problem.................

is this a 2 drive nas or just 1 drive

1 drive.

This as good as the WD MyBook Cloud Storage?

was it the linkstation 210? if so what's it like im torn between this and the 210.
Edited by: "mannin" 31st Oct 2014

I bought a nas drive 3 yrs ago from dabs, damaged in 5 days(WD hard drive inside), only running torrent for 2 days, I couldn't login to the nas any more. just threw it to the corner, didn't ask dabs for refund or exchange because there is personal data on the hard drive. I have a question, if I put a new drive on it, will it work straight away or need to install the operation system, and how? Because I don't have spare drive to test. (This deal remind me.) It was my first and only NAS, I use external hard drive instead. Iomega is one of the best! my 6 years old 1tb external hard drive, still very quick response, even faster than my new WD and seagate internal drive(2tb sata3). very reliable, I always store my important data on it. This NAS with 2tb drive is really good deal anyway
