    Question Netgear SC101 Max

    It seems Netgear have released a new NAS product, Has anyone managed to get one of these yet?

    Ebuyer have them for £73, just need to get two ATA drives.

    Anyone seen any reviews yet as there is a version with two 250gb supporting raid 0/1 for £225.

    It does look damn good, way cheaper than building a basic PC with RAID to store your data on.

    Can't seem to find much data on it on Netgears website. I don't expect it to be quick (not a problem at the price) but I'd be interested to know how noisy it is as there must be a fan in it to cool the drives.

    I'm interested too, though it's a bit of a shame you have to use a SCSI driver to access the device - thereby kinda limiting the possibilities of making the drives visible to the outside world via a router...

    Just bought 2, 1 for work 1 for home.

    Downsides are the fact its PC only and u have to have the storage software intalled on the client machines otherwise it cant be seen, downside to some but plus to others depending on ur security requirements...

    Seems ok, just copied a few gb's worth of stuff to it, its unlikely to max out the 100Mb thats built into it so I cant see there being any problems there, will find out later what its like when u stream from it as I'll copy the stuff from my main rig to it n then stream to the main machine and the shuttle to see how it goes, will also see how warm it gets with both of my 300gb Maxtors in there...

    Downside so far is when the drives in standby mode and you go into my computer it takes a while for it to come up as the drive has to power back up n refresh etc...

    It powers the drives down when not in use, it seems a bit slow tbh when copyin to it, its faster to copy from the NAS to a drive than across the NAS itself, other than no issues really...

    Tis one of the probs when you need external software to view the drive - just something else to go wrong imo.

    Any luck?

    Rebooted both machines that can see the toaster and the toaster itself and nothing, time to get a big drive so I can get the info off the damned things now, another downside is the fact it has its own FS, would be nicer if u could just put NTFS drives in it and go from there, instead I had to find 600gb of space on the network to copy the stuff off the drives to put them into the toaster and then copy it back...
