Thanks for adding image, posted deal with my tablet.

hot. ordered.

Was looking to buy this just to rip out the HDD inside. Anyone know if the WD Drive is any good?

Ordered yesterday and arrived today! Not set it up yet, work calls I'm afraid

Ordered on 28th (Monday) have received an email today (Tuesday) stating they are out of stock! However customer services inform me they are getting more in from Thursday.

discontinued now. should be expired. (god knows how they got rid of 100 in 12 hours)

I've just taken the HDD out of the NSA310 that arrived today, it's a WD Green inside. My old nas drive (Buffalo Linkstation) had a 1tb WD Green and the drive is still going strong 3 years on with near 24/7 use.

Worth noting the instructions that come with this NAS do explain how you can install an HDD of your own (you can buy the nas without an hdd), I figured I could follow these instructions in reverse to remove the drive but that's not the case. You have to unscrew every visible screw on the chasis (from the front and back, talking about 10 in total) so that you can get at one internal screw that would otherwise prevent the drive being removed from it's housing. It's not complicated though, 10 minutes work tops.

If you just bought the NAS withotu a drive preinstalled you could just slide a new hdd in, but if it has a drive preinstalled then you have to take it apart to get this one annoying screw out. I was pulling at the drive like a mad man before I decided to take all the other screws out. Trust me though it was really easy to take apart and put back together.

What's nice about this nas is that once you've installed a new drive you can set it up and format it from the web based gui. You don't have to do any special recovery stuff like you do with other NASs.

ordered, cheers

@z0mbi3 Thanks for the info - most helpful for anyone considering removing drive.

great NAS. absolutely great. loving the squeeze centre server. very handy with my modified o2 joggler running xp - great combo for serving up tunes, grabbing various podcasts and the watching latest modern family episodes in the kitchen.

When used as a NAS does it format as NTFS so you can remove the drive and use it as a normal desktop drive without formatting it?

/Edit: Bit of googling makes it look like it uses EXT4 internally....
