3.0 out of 5 stars A very light weight book, 16 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I realise that cyber security is the current but this is quite a thin book and the price is quite high for the low number of pages.
As such, one would expect each page to be a golden nudget of hard to uncover information. One was quite disappointed.

Lovely dress in principle but is - even when I went up a size - tight under the bust.
Lovely material though

5.0 out of 5 stars Great hobbyist test box, 14 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Get one, they are brilliant. Perfect NAS and perfect box for the home fiddler. Read my PX4-400d review for a comparison.
I ordered one based on the fact it had an Intel based motherboard and it was obvious it was basically a mITX PC in a fancy box. Which it is....
I was particular pleased to discovery the vendor sent me 2 but only charged for 1. Not sure if the 2 for 1 offer is still ongoing.
I have run the NAS core software, Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, Ubuntu 64 Linux and even Oracle Solaris 10 on the box. I'm sure it would run Android and maybe OSX at a pinch. It does load ESXi 5.x but the Atom does not native VT so gave up on that exercise.

5.0 out of 5 stars May be smaller than than its big brother, but it's exactly the same., 14 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Smaller than its big brother but twice as good, in my opinion.
I has the bigger DS416j and got one of the 'slim because I had a bunch of 2.5" discs not doing much.
Once installed, it performed brilliantly. I was surprised at both the speed and features. It was exactly the same as the bigger brother and actually seemed slightly faster. Even the slow 2.5" discs seemed as fast as the faster, bigger 3.5".
I was surprised and very pleased with this little unit. Also the copious number of flashing leds are nicely on the edge and not on the front panel, making for a great living room unit :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not excellent condition, tatty, very tatty, 14 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although posted as 2nd user, it was supposed to be in "excellent" condition. I do not call being covered in coffee stains and doing an immigration of a used bog brush, "excellent" condition.
Readable but tatty

4.0 out of 5 stars The PX2-300d is better, 14 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a couple of PX2-300d NAS's - long story... - and one has be implemented as the original NAS and works brilliantly. It integrates seamlessly into Active Directory and offers all the applications I actually use, without too much blotware.
The other one is running Windows Server 2016 and only needed two additional Intel source drivers to get all the USB and screens to run optimally.
Given that these are actually mITX Atom based PC motherboard, I was hoping that the PX4-400d with the more modern and faster Atom and 4 disc support would really perform but for some odd reason, Intel never produced 64bit drivers for this processor set so you are stuck with a generic screen driver which does not support higher modes. Not a big issue as it is running server software and arguably a back office device.
The original NAS software is held on a 1GB USB disc which can simple not be booted from in the BIOS, leaving a good looking, quiet PC ready for action. They would both make brilliant Linux boxes, all without being destructive to the original purpose.
There is a single SFF X11 PCIe slot. I tried an alternative video card in the slot but the PX4 refused to boot so I reckon BIOS support for additional cards is somewhat limited. The board is actually unmarked so I could not determine which manufacturer actually made it, unlike the PX2 which proudly boasts its Twainese manufacturer.
There is a header for addition USB port pairs, with I have utilised in a PX2 with no issues.
There are a few other headers to explore; one looks like a HD audio block.

The PX2 and PX4 has twin network socket, some USB socket - enough in operation but a hub is handy in deployment for CD drives etc.
The PX2 has VGA out, the PX4 has HDMI and a serial port (?!?!)
Both come with 2GB of RAM which is a single SODIMM occupying only 1 of the 2 slots. The Atom only supports 4GB with is generally a good and cheap upgrade.

So in summary?
As a NAS, this is an old but still good offering. The unit is an Iomega/IBM/EMC hybrid - all good names - running a no longer supported variant of Linux and runs on an Intel based motherboard. This is all great news for the fiddler who wants a small, quiet box to muck about with. It runs Windows 7 and Windows 10 with no issues.
As a NAS it's better than most MIPS based units but not as good as others but just remember these units were targets at businesses and while they easy to set up, one does need to know at least the basics. The fact they come with a perpetual antivirus license is a nice touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for those with some curves., 23 Sept. 2016

Was not expecting too much but they got the cut perfect. It is now one of my favourite dresses and so easy to wear. Very flattering, especially if you 'wiggle' just right.
Some curves definitely helps though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Way way too thin and flimsy, 23 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all, although the product was dispatched quickly, I received a King Size instead of a single.
Okay, I could have complained but when I checked the size, my finger went straight through the sheet.
I have seen tissue paper with more tensile strength!
It was about the same strength as those very cheap carrier bags which you feel cheated when you are charged 5p for...
I would not recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, proven and comfortably lacking in surprises., 24 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although there was a hiccup, the vendor was epic in sorting it out. The product itself is good. It may be cheaper to get the items individually but the fact it has all been tested and proven adds a certain comfort factor - basically a one stop shop.
