Thanks, These are great. I've two of an older version of these. Price is fantastic, just ordered.

They were great until HP Microservers came along about 5 years ago
Now they're just crap NAS boxes with crap transfer rates.

Get a HP Microserver and Nas4Free, save some money and have a much more versatile and useful device.

I agree but for those who want it pre configured out the box these aren't too bad. Plus i would go with Xpeology just because Nas4Free was a bit less user friendly

robo989 - Very true, the HP Microservers are superb, got me a couple of them when the cashback deals were on. As you say, their versatility is superb.

I gave one running Ubuntu to a mate who was computer phobic, loves it now, does everything & more he asks of it.
I went for this Netgear solely as a final job to get my old 70's/80s VHS tapes digitised, stored - RAID - no set up, then back in the cupboard.

You're right, shouldn't knock it, although the basics of a microserver are simple to setup getting NZBs loading and usenet client setup can be a bit of a nightmare as can anything else of that complexity.

...I do miss my 2 bay icybox gui lol...
I don't miss the 10MB/s transfer rates though on it's alleged "gigabit connection". (genuine of course, they just forgot to tell us there's a 200mhz cpu in there)

These are much better than that though and this is a good price.

I've got one of the older Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ v2 which is also 4 bay. Device does what it needs to, and does it rather well for the price. Won't be the fastest CPU or transfer speeds but if you need to store a lot of data, you could do worse and it's all very straightforward for novices. Had great support from Netgear when I've needed it too, despite owning the thing for years

Any good for serving plex?

I hate these net gear ones....Synology all the way for me. GUI is more user friendly, the support is better and I've never had an issue with the NAS where as the netgears, trouble all day

Does anyone know the best place i can get a HP microserver from?

bought zyxell 2 bay 512mb ram for 50 quid 4 months ago and it really works very well backing up all the devices in my home. price for this deal's nas seems bit steep for wot it does. i recommend getting zyxell over dlink

DigitalTorq

Any good for serving plex?



plex is a beasty media server not designed to operate on energy efficient nas. if u look at min spec required on plex's website ull know wot i mean

The negative reviews of this item on Amazon are very reasoned, explained and damning for me.

I've been using one of these for probably almost a year now. Great device, does what its supposed to. Good selection of apps avialable too. I've had no problems whatsoever with mine and it gets very heavily used. Excellent value at this price.

Looks like a good price, it seems gets some good reviews as well (and some bad)

Whenever a NAS is posted the stock reply is get a HP microserver instead, can anybody enlighten me? They seem pricey (remember no cashback unless you have a Tardis)
From what I see you are looking at £200 for a bare bones G7 Microserver then you need an operating system (Windows server?) and a drive to boot from thats before adding your WD RED HDD's or am I missing something? any pointers much appreciated.

It's a PC vs Mac type if argument here.

Love my readynas nv+ it does all I need it to do, torrents, storage, sharing, print serving, media streaming.

I doubt most home users put Windows Server on their Microservers, there are plenty of OS options ranging from Linux to FreeNAS to Synology.

Microservers used to work out at £80 after cashback (including RAM, 250GB hard drive, usb ports, gigabit lan, far more powerful CPU that can almost saturate a gigabit connection with 5 drives in RAID5)

Like said, depends what you want and it's only very recently these have dipped in price to be comparible.

I'm looking for a NAS but now the Microserver looks good if I go for a free OS.
One thing that concerns me the spec on DABS says only RAID 0 or RAID 1 or can they run RAID 5 ?? I'm confused

as far as I can remember you can only software raid5 with the built in controller. if you want true hardware raid 5 you need a separate raid card.
