Since it's BNIB, I'd check around to see what it would cost to buy locally (or get delivered) and offer it for 75% of the pre-tax cost.

My System Specs

Default Watchout for NDAS and comparison.

Is it for purchase by you or sale?

You can get a W.D. My book world from costco for $539 with 2 x 1TB drives in it.

So figure $135 for a 1TB drive from CanadaDirect or other and you've got $270 from teh $539 so you've got $269 left.

So if the A.C. Ryan is $269 or less then it's a good buy. Only caveat is that it's an NDAS device. There are claims that an NDAS device is better than a run of the mill file sharing NAS device but, If you have any funky network softare on your PC like a VPN client it may conflict with the NDAS driver.

I had a user purchase an NDAS device and it wouldn't play nice with Check Point SecuRemote, the VPN client we use here at my Company.

It's for sale by me. From what I've seen, it's about $139 at other places, so that might be a good starting point.

Thanks for the help guys.
