I bought this NAS the replace a single drive Seagate which failed 20 minutes out of warrantee!!!!! Seagate were not interested in helping me with it.

It arrived quite quickly in an enormous box full of packing material. It was about four times larger than it needed to be.

Setting it up was a breeze and only took about 10 minutes. I used the 2TB sata drive that I extracted from the dead Seagate NAS, which appears so far to be fine. I plan to add a second 2TB drive in RAID 1 configuration soon.

I downloaded this book as a way of getting advice on which iMac I should buy. It was mostly useful in its explanation of CPU vs RAM and the effect my choices would have on the computers overall performance. However, it failed to pint out that the lastesr version 21.5" iMac doesn't have an external memory upgrade slot like the 27" version. It also fails to mention that the 21.5" iMac is available with the Intel i7 CPU. Overall though it offered good value for money. Mine copy was free.

So far I've read about 1/3 of Roberts Books and generally enjoyed all of them. However, I felt that this one is probably my least favourite so far. It tended to jump about and ramble a little too much for my liking. Most of the chapters started with some almost pointless poetry.

It's a shame as the subject matter is quite good overall, but it could have been executed at little better.

It won't however stop me reading more of Roberts works, as I want to read all of his books now they are all availble on the Kindle.
