Price for me is £544.77


what would be a good nas server for home as i am new to 4k streaming party.


Not for 4K transcoding, I know they say 4K transcoding is a feature once you check the details you will realised the files have to be already in a specific format etc... will do it at 100% CPU hit but just absolutely run like a "dog" for anything else you got running on the NAS.


without my glasses it looked like a remote controlled toaster!

3TB Seagate Nas Drive £83.07 @ ebuyer
Found 29th SepFound 29th Sep
Potential 1.5% TCB making cheapest posted so far today. Open to all, no Prime membership required. Free delivery. 3 year warranty. 99 in stock at time of posting.

Always have a good plan for backing up your data. Basically you want: 3 copies of any data you don't want to lose. 2 different mediums it's stored on (so 2 different drives in your computer, for example). 1 copy kept offsite, to prevent against disaster.


Me to, but this is a good deal for those who like Seagate.


Personally, past history taken into account too, I'd pay the extra £6 for another 2 years warranty and take the WD red, also from ebuyer. It says rather a lot about how well each manufacturer regards their product and it's likely longevity. WD 5 years, Seagate 3.

thanks mate. was trying to do a similar setup on a unraid box, but really really struggled with the VPN component and my router... cheers


Nginx website and Samba are held on a Pi 3 and VPN server + DNS are on an Original Pi 1 Heres how I setup the VPN, it was as easy as Pi Don't expect lightning speeds, but it was very usable. Also you can use PiHole as I did so your VPN even has Adblocking included on it. :)


elliott - how did you split the tasks between the Pis? and how did you get the VPN server setup? followed a guide before but it took forever to get working properly


I've got a Qnap TS-453A. Other than crypto-mining, I can't think of anything they haven't tried to cram in there (actually the only negative I have about it)... you can even use it as a karaoke machine (I wish I was kidding).


Simplicity. Not everyone can do it.

Seagate 3 TB IronWolf 3.5 Inch HDD - £83.07 @ Amazon
Found 28th SepFound 28th Sep
3TB version of a deal I posted earlier

Exactly what I'm saying, we swapout and let the raid rebuild itself then put the drive back into service. Seagate exchange without quibble.


Thx for the clarification. I mistakenly thought you were talking about drives in a raid array, in that post, which is why I got confused.


I have had terrible luck with Seagate if they fail at the same rate as others. I have HGST Ultras from years ago still going and some pretty old WDs but my Seagates usually fail within a year or two. I had the ones in a NAS I bought replaced a few times under warranty and ended up having to buy a replacement recently again. Unfortunately there is something slightly different with the new model that the NAS doesn't like and it won't rebuild the mirror. Every Seagate external I've had has failed just out of warranty, even under very light use.


For Prime members.


To your last question, the RAID array has no bearing on the failure mode. It only affects how willing you are to do data recovery. Are you getting confused between the RAID controller and the controller board on the HDD itself? Assume you have one HDD and it fails in spectacular mechanical fashion, say a platter explodes. You will not be able to recover data from that drive. Say the controller board on the bottom fails, you could swap it out with that of a working drive and recover data from the still totally fine mechanical portion. In a RAID scenario, you wouldn't bother recovering data from that one drive because you have copies. You might however replace the controller board then put the drive back into service, it's mechanically fine after all and replacement controller boards I imagine are cheap compared to replacing the whole drive.

Seagate IronWolf 4 TB 3.5 inch Internal Hard Drive - £111.59 @ Amazon

Nowt to say other than good little drives

WD Red is currently just under £110 too if you prefer WD.


Now 110.79


Cheaper on Ebuyer @ £110.50 and 1.5% cashback at TCB


Fortunately in a modern pc, unless you open it up and start poking at your hd printed circuit board with your hand or a screwdriver etc. the case and many other metallic parts between your hand (screwdriver etc) are all earthed so any charge will be safely discharged to earth.


@BB93 'Nowt to say' Quite a lot to say, I would have thought, seeing as these are shingled drives with all that implies

Something to think about when handling HDD's. What is Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)? ESD or `static shock’ is the transfer of electrical charge in an imbalanced high voltage field on a non-conductive surface (for example your hand, the carpet or your screwdriver) that has just moved to a conductive surface in a rapid, uncontrolled fashion, either through direct contact or through an induced electrical field. It is the phenomenon that gives you a mild shock when you walk across a carpeted floor and then touch a doorknob. While this discharge gives a harmless shock to humans, it is lethal to sensitive electronics. Hard disc drives (HDD) are also severely affected by ESDS because HDD is an electromagnetic device with many sensitive IC components Some Examples of `static’ Voltage • 3,000 volts - below which the average human doesn't even feel it • 8,000 volts - yawning and stretching with clothes on • 15-20,000 volts - shoving a plastic-coated box across the carpet with foot • 18,000 volts - getting up from a foam cushion on a nylon-covered couch • 35,000 volts - just walking on a typical carpet How ESD Damages Your Drive ESD damage occurs when a charge on a hand or tool finds a path of lesser resistance for itself to a HDD. As the current flows to the HDD, if the maximum amount of energy that parts of the HDD can dissipate is less than the energy of the charge, then damage may occur. In a HDD, the small metal gold-coloured trace on the circuit board, which are made to handle minute amounts of voltage, can be blown apart. Even more frustrating, if the damage is only partial, the signal which is supposed to go through the path may become intermittent, causing degradation of the signal and STRESS for you!

Good price for a 14TB. Heat added. These are over £500 anywhere else. I have had 2 x 10TB since January. I am using for recording CCTV to my NAS. Very quiet and reliable. Although I was hesistent at first, moving from WD to Seagate - but thankfully have had no issues whatsoever with the Ironwolf range.

Synology DS118 1 Bay Diskless Desktop NAS £144.97 / £149.98 delivered @ laptops direct

Just set mine up today and quite pleased with it. The DS Audio app for Android is particularly handy for streaming. The main downside so far is that some Synology packages such as Docker are not compatible with the ARMv8 processor. The current Beta version of Plex seems to be too buggy to bother with at the moment but it hopefully shouldn't be too long until an update is released.


Have both, 5 and 6 bay devices. Symbology is miles ahead, in both tech and customer care.


I have a synology but qnap is the only way togo


From what I have read that is true. But I just need storage with only basic "smarts" that can send files to another box that does all the work.


Yeah, should be better than the 215j but nowhere near as powerful as the 118.

Bad luck, but keep it bookmarked, check a few times a day and you'll get one. And you still get people with the old "if they have so many recertified ones, they can't be very reliable" (lol)

This is how (US) send out their hard drive (and is something that WD certify as well). The point I was making in my tweet that I posted earlier is why doesn't (UK), match this.

Just tried the router. Given others' experience I won't be messing with the firmware in a hurry, but everything seems to work ok so far - the wireless signal is no worse than a Sky Q/NowTV hub, so it should be fine as a low cost repeater, hotel wifi AP, or a nas for the back seats on long car journeys. Not bad for under a tenner! A couple of unexpected "features": Firmware is ancient: Nexx 3020F V1.10 (Feb. 5, 2015 18:05:52) Wouldn't let me change primary DNS server address without disabling DHCP For nas access the username and password are as admin, not wifi user as stated on the nas screen FWIW, GLi routers' stock firmware, general and advanced GUI are better by miles, and you can install most if not all vpn services on those without issue. Can't see a way to put vpn on these Nexx routers without flashing firmware (and risk bricking it). Having said that, it seems those who bricked it might have relied on old (2015/6 vintage) instructions/firmware? Posts from #1714 at the following thread (try Chrome translate) are likely to have more success: Cheers!


More useful than a bricked router? (excited) I received mine today, haven't had a chance to try it yet. It is not much bigger than a pack of Tic Tac - perfect for travelling (if I don't manage to brick it in the meantime). For the less adventurous, I can highly recommend the GLi AR300m, brilliant as a cheap openvpn router when circa 13mbps up/down is acceptable.


Has anyone received theirs from Dresslily? My order arrived today. It contained two bags of assorted metal washers.


Anyone actually had any success flashing it with something?


Wish I could help but don't know much off the top of my head about which routers allow custom firmware and so on. Good luck though (y)

NAS 3TB (RECERTIFIED) , seems to be a good price.
Get dealGet deal

I’ve had a quick look and it seems that your first gen firmware 4.x only has safe point to backup, there’s no folder/volume to folder. It seems that the 2.x firmware was even worse as it didn’t have any scheduled backup, but I guess they sorted it and added the non-network copying and backup. Such an obvious thing to have as standard on a NAS which has a USB port built in!


Thanks. I'm using the 04.X model and the firmware for that is 04.05.00-327 (05/08/2017)


Let me know what firmware and which model and I’ll see if I can find out if it’s possible. As far as I can remember there are two main firmware groups; 2XXX or 4XXX (or 4.x.x or whatever), both of mine are the 2.x.


Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately that option isn't available on my version. I have the original model with the last available firmware and I guess it must be for new revisions only.


Bought it few month back for similar price - love it so far. Getting around 110 MB/s read and just below 100 MB/s write speed using gigabit LAN connection. Shame you can't set-up Active Directory on this model however it's only a basic NAS after all. Good product at great price.

might be a silly question but will this work in a hikvision NVR? Currently got a 2tb purple


It's mental that they still haven't sorted this out... I remember them doing the same for a WD red drive that I bought 6 years ago. Took a few attempts before they finally shipped a properly packaged drive that wasn't DOA.


Last time I bought 4 of WD Reds Pro and they fit into the cardboard box perfectly. However if someone ordered 1 or 2 I could imagine they would be too loose. My WDs came from EU and I registered them at WD and got 5 years of warranty without any issues.


Been buying WD Reds from amazon for years never had any problems and even if one when when faulty I know they would replace or refund even after 2 years


I'd pay the extra premium to buy it from someone other than Amazon. Reading reviews amazon has all sort of trouble with insufficient packaging and being imported from outside of EU which means they're not covered under the warranty

I got a Buffalo terrastation 8gb from Amazon for around £160 a little while back and I seem to remeber you can reinstall fresh drives and firmware by running the update or booting from a usb disk.


With buffalo nas, the nas os is held on the drive meaning you cannot switch out the drive easily. You will need to clone the drive if you wish to do that. If the nas os is corrupt you may not be able to easily access you files. Had an issue with one of these in the office a few years back

I had a EX2100 and sold it for same price I bought it for on electronic bay (minus the 2 x 4TB drives of course!). I actually loved it and it was much simpler to use but didn' have the Onedrive sync that I needed so it had to go unfortunately :( Very happy with its replacement so far though at least.


I was looking at getting a NAS to use as a CCTV storage point with 4 cameras planned. Would this be able to handle it? Or should I wait out for the TS-253a to come down in price?

shoobirdy To be honest if you don't know you're better of researching it and seeing if you really want it rather than impulse buying.

If this is bulk, the warranty is likely to be 12 months I had a Toshiba drive fail after 2 yrs 6 months and even though the toshiba warranty site said it was in warranty, because it was a bulk/oem drive, they said the warranty wasn't valid. The retailer (ebuyer) said the warranty with them was 12 months so tough. Their site says: Service & Support Limited warranty - 3 years but it says Manufacturer Warranty. This is unlikely to be true as it's not a retail product.


Seagate Barracuda 2.5" 2TB is 7 mm form factor so compatible with much more laptops for £63.64. The Seagate SMR firmware is perfectly fine and just as fast as most PMR drives. Or if you don't like that, you could always get the FireCuda with SSD caching when it goes on sale. I wouldn't buy anything from eBuyer any more, but deal regardless.
