Yes I know you can get a micro server for less, but this uses less energy, built in all in one in a box, just plug and play, and you can change the memory and it is very quite at 25db, also not everyone knows how to set up the servers ect.. and seems it can shift media on the fly as well, with a atom hyper thread cpu

ReadyNAS® Ultra is the first-ever storage system with media-shifting capabilities, enabling users to centralize their media and access it from any networked location and on any networked device. Ideal for media enthusiasts wanting a fast, high-quality yet affordable storage solution to store, share and protect their high-valued media collections. More than twice as fast as legacy ReadyNAS for Home systems, it enables users to shift their media onto nearly any device and unplug their direct-attached storage. It also provides advanced storage features, like X-RAID2™, and fast access to stored media content from any location via any DLNA® Certified® device.

Can anyone find a better NAS box with a 1TB drive for cheaper, a all in one solution?

I really would like to know why all the cold votes, I dont want a loud server that uses 350w and dont know how to set it up.

I need a nas, whats wrong with this new Netgear ultra, gets great reviews at £300.00 with no drives.

DIY well cheaper, less power.

Yes but lots of problems with freenas,
people vote qnap hot, but they are overpriced and the same can be said for them, you can build one cheaper.

What about this in a mini itx case? what psu would I need to make it silent? and what else?…cts

Actually a HP MicroServer with a Single disk fitted only uses 40w power when idle..only about 10-15w more than a ReadyNAS....…ion

The HP Microserver really does take some beating to be honest...and no i'm not defending my purchase as i don't have one....

Still using an old Netgear Stora myself as despite the lousy reviews I've found it to be an utter fantastic bargain NAS (and maxes at around 12w usage :-) ) but if i was buying again it would be a Microserver.....

This is actually a really good deal, given a QNAP TS-119+ costs more than this (and not as fast) and it doesn't come with any drives!
