    Hmm... Scan seems to have this for £69.99.. price cuts already :)?

    So how fast is it compared to other NAS boxes, as it seems cheap compared to most others?

    Seems like a pretty good price. I doubt I could build an equivalent box for less than that.

    Seems very cheap, what's the catch?

    Gotta admit, I am also a little worried about the price. I have been casually taking note of NAS boxes and the like, since I would love a really low powered home server I could use for storage, and also use for torrenting, since it's kinda wasteful to leave a 4GHz 750 and a GTX285 on overnight just to download!

    I guess we will have to wait for the reviews.

    I really do wish they would give more than 2 bays in these products. Any with 4+ just cost way too much because apparently having 4 drives makes you a "business level" user?

    My thoughts exactly! I paid over £100 for a second-hand DNS-323 a few months ago. How do the two compare?

    Yeah, wouldn't mind seeing a review showing the transfer rates.

    best home server I have found is an old laptop with USB HDD (the ones that don't need separate power adapters. Like the Samsung 1TB drive.

    Can't give you transfer rates but copying everything from my old server to this NAS is maxing out the network (100Mbit, and the utilisation is around 60-70%) rather than anything else. And it hasn't run its fan yet either. Things might change once connected via gigabit, but at present this is plenty fast enough.
