When does it come out?
Does anyone have any info what the prices will be in Europe?
I've heard tale as soon as the end of this month, though I'll be surprised if that is indeed the case. Seems it will be in the first quarter of '07 for sure though.
As an avid NSLU2 user, I'll be interested to see if this device will be able to be unslung as well.
Any idea if it will have a gigabit interface?
AFAIK, no. just 10/100MBit which kinda sucks if you ask me...
Yes, the spec sheet says 10/100 which sucks. What were they thinking? I'm looking an at D-Ling DNS-323 instead. It's a little more expensive but has Gigabit. I've heard the firmware has problems but may buy it anyway in hopes that it will improve.
will it have any RAID features?
Raid 0 and Raid 1 are supported.
what filesystem does the NAS200 use, and if I install two disks as seperated disks, does it require a reformat?
i have a load of data on two ext3 drives and it'd be great if i didn't have to reformat!
the NAS uses ext2 when configured as two separate drives. The NAS will reformat the drives when inserted in the NAS. It has 128mb partition it puts on each of the drives for firmware configurations including passwords, shares and folders.
cheers, that's good to know ... bit of a bugger, but good to know!
nas200 sucks!!! how can i mapped my files with my vista? i have 120G SATA drive.
Along that same line of questioning....
I need to backup vista workstations to a NAS and the WRTSL54GS would not do it. You can drag-and-drop files but apps can't access it directly.
I have read in another thread that the WRTSL.. is running an older, not compatable with Vista, version of Samba.
Is the Samba in the NAS200 more Vista compatable than the WRTSL54GS?
