Netgear ReadyNas RNDP400U Ultra 4 Plus X-RAID2 (Diskless)

I have been waiting since September last year for this to be released and it was finally available a monthor two ago, but wasw always between £500 - £530.

So at £375.27 inc VAT & Delivery, this is a pretty decent deal IMHO.

When I originally posted this on or around the 12th May, I paid £416, , so this is ean even better price.

Might as well just go for the HP Microsever it's alot cheaper.

Got a ReadyNas Duo with 2*2Tb and it's superb. When I need more space, I think I'll be going for the Ultra 6

id like a system that holds 4 sata drives and connects to the pc via the usb, i bought one before and although all 4 drives sat in the unit they all had to be connected to the pc with their own cables and they were not usb's

they need to invent - 1 box, 4 drives, 1 power lead, 1 usb lead and thats the lot

the_gfp have a look at the StarTech 3.5 inch 4 Drive eSATA USB FireWire External SATA RAID Enclosure. You could probably get it cheaper from somewhere else. My link is just an example. You should be able to source a 4 x bay USB drive box for under £100 if you don't need hardware RAID.

It's not even worth half of that and was definitely not worth the wait, you should have bought a HP Microserver before xmas for just over £110 ish (after the £100 cashback). The hardware spec is similar (microserver has slightly slower CPU) but the microserver is much more configurable.

The £100 cashback on ProLiants is still running. I have two of them.

Each to theirown then I suppose.

Does noone build their own?

raspberrypi.org/

£15 linux PC - just add an adaptor/case for as many hard disks you would like, and away you go.

Sorted.

If you're wanting something from that end of the NAS market then you should be looking at the likes of Synology or QNAP not Netgear.

what a silly comment, Rolls Royce, to a Lada? you cant compare, its not like eggs are eggs here, Ultra 4 plus is a very high spec unit, many would not use all the features, has a massive following and a good support forum, look it up.

Updated to reflect to the lower price of £375.25.

I paid £416 when I purchased this on the 9th May, so a bit gutted to see it drop over £40 in such a short time.

Maybe even the CVs will think it a bargain at this price.
