Fantastic thank you
The only issue with this is Amazon take your money prior to cancellation/disptach. In any case ordered

Ordered. Thank you.

You beat me posting this by 1 minute.
I did this with the 918+ when it dropped dramatically in price last September, supplied and fulfilled by Amazon. It was sent a week later lol

Forgot I had even set this camel price alert up (my alternative choice to 918+ as it has an extra drive bay) that triggered this morning so came on here to see if anyone had posted it

Have some heat
Absolutely brilliant price if they honour it.
Fantastic!
Voted hot.
Excellent spot OP. Good deal. Many thanks. Voted hot
Ordered. Thanks OP! Unbelievable value if this is honoured. Just bare in mind I pre-ordered a GPU a couple of years ago which didn't turn up. I complained time and time again. Eventually I negotiated the same 40% discount on an even better GPU so was happy enough. But lots of people were left disappointed.
Amazing price, ordered. Thanks OP, now let's wait and see

Was it in stock when you ordered (wasn’t for me just wondered if anyone got it straight away)?

I think they should; well if they can get stock. It’s been sold for a while so the pricing Systems should just be working within the bounds, normally mis prices are new products set up wrong or offers stacking (I think?)
Very good price. I hope they honor it.
Cheers OP! Been wanting one of these for months now.
Unable to add to basket
Gone already.
Gotta be quick with these. Heat added though.
What's interesting is that I paid via credit card in case it got cancelled so it didn't tie up funds for no reason. But the payment is showing in my credit card as pending. Pretty sure they don't normally take payment until item is dispatched.

I think I got the 918+ at the same time. Seemed a good deal back then. Not so much today.

Pending is fine. It just makes sure that they can take the funds when they dispatch.
A real shame this doesn't have 10GbE. With NVMe cache you could easily utilise it. To get the best out of it you'd need to use usb or esata, which limits where you can put this.

I hope this works out for those who were fast enough. Insane price
DAMN!!

Still one hell of a price for a bare box, even one with 5 bays, unless you really need synology

I agree to a some extent. As hot as the deal is, for £399 you could build quite a powerful box that can do a lot more. I'm not really sure I understand why it needs NVMe cache, let alone dual NVMe cache. More ram would generally be a better option. It's generally rare that you would need more than a few GB unless it's a very high workload or you're moving really big files around.

That said, this is quite small, uses relatively little power and does the job, and you don't have to build it.

If you've got a minute or so can you expand on this? USB or esata for what? Do you mean to utilize the full speed NVME cache when transferring data externally you'd need to connect via usb or esata? Cheers.

Maintenance and tinkering time is more why I picked synology (second to running costs), it is a all in one solution and I don’t need to spend time learning how to do things (I can then spend the time building more interesting custom projects... or YouTube).

I have Hp MicroServer it’s all well and good but when something changes and you take hours to fix it

When the item is to be delivered in 1-2 months they will take payment after 5 days. Had it recently with something else I ordered.
I've just deleted loads of films to free up some space and avoid having to upgrade my existing nas. I have a DS212+ with a DX213 expansion unit. The problem is I have to have two separate volumes so I can't use SHR across x4 disks. So x4 4TB gives me only 8TB of storage instead of 12TB with SHR or RAID 5. But at this price it's a steal.

Not anymore. It’s the new policy to charge on the 5th day after placing an order for out of stock items. Preorders, in general, don't seem to be affected, but if an out of stock item still hasn’t been dispatched by the 5th day, they charge the card and then refund you if the order is cancelled. If not, they’ll hold onto the funds. So people will likely be charged for this in 5 days and you may not even get the item for months. (I’ve had orders listed as 1-2 months still not be delivered 6 months later)

Just one of the risks of these Amazon deals these days. Still, got to be in it to win it.

Yep exactly that.

The network link on this is 1Gbps, which is 125Mb/sec. USB 3.0/3.1 is 5Gbps, but I think USB is limited to only a few metres (<5m IIRC). eSATA is either 3Gbps or 6Gbps, but again only a metre or so.

A typical hard disk can read/write to the order of 100Mb/sec on its own. In some form of RAID, you'd expect something like 200-400Mb/sec overall. (I have an 8 drive array in RAID 5 (6 data + 2 parity) via 3Gbps eSATA and easily saturate it (I get an easy sustained 370Mb/sec).

An NVMe drive can write at about 1000-3000Mb/sec.

So if you have this hooked up via ethernet, you're going to saturate the 1Gbps link very quickly, so no point in the NVMe cache.

If you use USB 3/eSATA, then you need to be close to the box (or you could hook it up to a server of some sort to USB3/eSATA, so then your limit is how fast you can get data to/from the server). Your limit is either 3/6 Gbps for eSATA or 5Gbps for USB3, so somewhere between 375-700Mbps. It's at the middle to higher end of that where an NVMe cache would start to have an effect, because the main disks probably won't be able to sustain more than 500Mbps.

Maybe I got lucky with this GPU deal

Was at least £100 lower than average price (340 vs 450+) and amazon honoured it.
(whether its good value at normal price is a different discussion )

I know the feeling. It depends on how much you enjoy the maintenance and tinkering too. Time well spent vs time wasted. Sometimes you want things to "just work".
rprp25/02/2020 09:39

They told me it was to do with a new EU law, but they’re very selective about applying it so I have a feeling it’s to deter people from ordering pricing mistakes.

I got an MSI GTX 1080 Gaming Plus for £315 when they were going for £600+. Had agreed on £360 but rinsed them further for the RRP of the included free game when the code wouldn't work.
I'm gutted I missed this. One of the drawbacks of working late and rising late
I reckon all those that ordered this, including myself, will not get their order cancelled
Damn, order cancelled
Simong_198425/02/2020 15:53

Damn, order cancelled


That's a shame. Mine hasn't been yet, but it's bound to be cancelled now. I had high hopes that it would go through based on the fact it wasn't around for very long
