Next cheapest from a creditable bigish company would be BT business direct at 299+about £7 pp.

its a good NAS that provides 4 bays (versus similar price with 2-bay) which might be good for future expansion.

its one of their compact models though not the “best” performancing compared to say the 918+ or couple of quad core ones but for home use one shouldn’t notice the difference?”...imo

just get yourself a couple of decent 3.5 internal HDD like WD red (probably enough)/red pro/black or even gold and gold 256 rather than buy the pre-installed ones that likely cost you more.

You can buy some WD hard disks 20% off using an ISIC card on WD official site...
I saw Red Pro 10tb is about 50£ more vs standard Red but Gold 256s seem better spec’d but cheaper than Red Pro....by getting the Diskless one...you will have to make a choice what HDD to put in....that where I’m stuck at...

PS it was from Amazon direct but now Kika is selling at similar price - some kind soul updated the title for me aldreay. Apologies for my terrible typing with predictive txt on...even I said wtf was I talking about....

Hi @scmk3000 , there's nothing showing for the price you posted at so I've edited to Kikateck on Amazon, which is actually a bit cheaper than the price you posted at
Can you put nas in the title please. I have key words for Nas and this didn't trigger. Thanks

Put Synology and Qnap to keywords for future proof - they are most popular NAS producers

Yes, they usually are. Without disks. I suppose it's Synology you're paying for. It is pretty easy to use compared to the free NAS applications. Physically, you could of course buy a conventional midi tower for less which would probably be faster or even a Microserver
There was some sort of Intel cpu fault with a lot of these NASes which I remember reading about. (Not the current one which exposes code and requires a software update)
"You can get the faster /newer one with extra about 50 quid on each level up. warehouse and wd student store of WD yin you have an ISIC card..."


Probably just me struggling, but what do you mean here - is there a cheaper option for the same/better for students?

Sorry was half asleep when typing on my phone...awful...

isic card is is easy to get - search for “online course NUS card” or something and you go to the WD site and student store and right at the bottom you should see ‘...or use you ISIC card here’ which will take you to a different site to log on but return to WD once in.

i have not tried myself but you could in theory go to the WD Ireland site and use PayPal to order with ISIC login to enjoy the discount. Their T&C actually mention they only deliver to the UK, even though the site is part of a group of European countries...

Upgrade was meant like red to red pro would be around £50 more for a same size.

Technoworld have had it at £271.22 for last few weeks. Been thinking about it. So voted cold on this occasion.

Yeah I saw them as the cheapest all the time on google search but wasn’t sure what they are like so skipped them myself. Between amazon and kika - just for the convenience and good return policy (free and worry free with amazon lockers) I would not mind the extra few quids - but that’s me preference. As it happens Kika lowered there price on Amazon after the amazon’s own offer was gone.

Ah it was you! Thanks!
Only 10% off the 10TB with ISIC, plus postage makes it £339 for a single drive.

You'd be better with the Enterprise Gold on Amazon for £328...

amazon.co.uk/WD-…5M/

Gonna need 4 of those bad boys right enough to fill the NAS and have at least SOME redundancy (and hope 2 don't fail at the same time!).
You tried changing the country to Ireland and use PayPal - that’s way cheaper vs UK...

I think I will wait till I go over to the US and order the Gold 10tb (256) as they are $330 each using student discount from my friend’s kids - (note they don’t accept ISIC on their US site)

looks like a decent enough nas
ORDERED

looking forward to migrating my data across to this.
Have a read on the model numbers on the Synology website. Although already mentioned, this is their new 2018 "budget" J version.. just saying incase anyone decided to impulse buy.
