If anyone is after a NAS BT Shop currently have a bundle deal of the Netgear ReadyNas 102 with free 1TB HDD for £119.98, pretty good deal if you ask me. The deal is listed on the 'bundle deals' tab in the bottom left

NAS comes with a WD 1TB Red for those of you who want to buy the additional drive to go with it for RAID.

Pointless including a 1TB drive. Assume it would be cheaper without the 'free' drive.

The WD 1TB Red drive can be had from Amazon for £50.98 with free delivery.

You can get the bare RN102 for £99.99 from PC world.
So if you were to include a WD RED drive, you're looking at £150.97.

The cheapest 1TB drive on the market is currently the Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 from Aria at £37.50 + delivery, bringing it to £137.49. Keep in mind the barracuda is not a drive designe for NAS.

If you were to populate both bays, and aria let you order more then one drive, ignoring delivery costs, it'd bring the price up to £174.99. Still more then BT's offer + Amazon's extra WD RED drive at £170.96.


However, 1TB drives are quite small for most people, and if you were to use bigger drives in the bare NAS, you'd get a better deal for storage since you'd not be paying for a useless drive.. (save, putting it on ebay).

And that was the point. If you are going to buy a new NAS box, why would you be sticking 1TB drives into it.
