Have one of these. Good price, especially given the price of 2TB drives atm. Bung in a couple of WD Greens and you're away- 4TB NAS box for under £200

Hope you're not in a hurry: "Usually dispatched within 1 - 4 months."

gives me time to download 4TB of stuff to fill it

Good price, though 4TB capacity is discouraging

Bit of web searching suggests firmware updates have introduced support for higher capacity drives.

definitely do not put WD Greens in NAS

Heat for the price.....just the fan is noisy just like on the nsa-310, noisy in the way it has an annoying tone even when the hdd's are powered down.

In stock at Dabs for the same price plus delivery, whatever that is, about a fiver I think , good reliable make, personally I would go for the NSA325 V2 as it is more powerful but £45 dearer than this. I have a 210 and a 310 sitting in the loft waiting to go on ebay, never had a problem with either but decided to go down the Microserver route. Also got a Buffalo NAS up there as well, now that was a ball ache to work on X) Heat added for this deal though.

My mistake standard delivery is free.

Got my NSA325 after some research and help from HUKD'ers. Use mostly for streaming films and TV shows (HD and SD) to smart TV and PS3. To be honest even that bigger processor sometimes doesn't seem to be enough! Yes it's a bit extra but well worth it, considering the cost of the 2x 3tb WD Reds you can put in the 325.

I have a couple wd greens in my microserver that's on 24/7 and have done for 2-3 years now. Disable the aggressive spinning down of the drives and they should last a lot longer. Although I did get mine before reds were around

That's what the Zyxel prebuilts used to ship with. I've had greens in NAS boxes for well over 5 years now without a single solitary issue. Perhaps you could provide a reason for not using them?

Great price but be warned that I have personally had to send back 3 o these devices after they arrived DOA (A common problem as it turns out)

I eventually gave up trying to get something that works from Zyxel.

I voted hot anyway, because if you get a working one then great and if you don;t, you can always send it back like I did

Essentially, Green drives are designed to park their heads more often than other drives to save on power consumption. On a device which is always on, like a NAS often is, this can lead to significantly increased failure rates.

I haven't experienced this myself, but this is the theory and I know a lot of people specifically avoid green drives or flash their firmware because of it.

I have one, OK for backup storage but be warned that the throughput is pretty dire so if you're time-constrained or expecting great performance, look elsewhere

That's why I went down the Microserver route, my N54L writes data at up to 110 Megabytes a second from my desktop depending on what you are transferring, whereas my NSA310 which is the same as the 320 but single drive used to write at about 30.

I've had my 310 for a couple of years now and it's about full. Anyone know if I could get one of these and put my drive from the 310 in and it would work?

Not sure but I would think not unless you are to have 2 separate drives showing ie D:\ & E:\ if it joins the 2 into 1 drive then I would think it would delete the data, hopefully I am incorrect.

Does it support Plex server?
