I got my new HDD's today :). I will be installing them and setting my nas up tonight, again. (never buy samsung drives for RAID, even the RAID Edition)

Bit of an update.

1. The samsung drives are great as along as you don't use them in a raid. (i upgraded my HTPC)

2. The WD Black Edition drives are freaking awesome. I had my raid built and initialized in under 24hrs.

3. I got my Matrix Orbital Typhoon GX today. FREAKING AMAZING LCD. The annoying thing is that i had to buy it from the US so let's get this straight. I had to buy A CANADIAN product, that was exported to the US, then Import it back into canada and pay taxes and handling (i shipped USPS so no duty :D). How does that make sense :).

Anyway i will post some action shots later tonight and if my video camera is charged maybe even a video :D.

Also a ran into a little snafu with the ps3media centre software. It works brilliantly for music and pictures but the video is kind of hit and miss. It seems unless it's a prefectly encoded MKV file it will break, and quite comically at that. Think Chipmunks on Redbull. So for video i am going to stick with my popcorn hour (brilliant peice of tech). But the nas is awesome. And the great thing is it's very future proof. (think 128 Drive NAS :D)

holy thread revival batman. Anyway for the short time i had the nas it worked great performance was rather impressive (nothing as fast as a SAS backplane or SSD's) but around a sustained 200MB/s write and around 400MB read. But i have since parted and sold this. all i have left is the typhoon gx. (stupid surpirse car repairs) i am not sure if i will ever rebuild one. But if you want to see an insane build check out altered Realities NAS project over at the ncix forums. He's a co worker of mine and it's freaking insane.

hehe, sorry, didn't notice the time !

Do you have a link? The NCIX forum is not very search friendly... I manage to find your friend, but not his post.

thanks a lot ! :)

edit: I really hate the NCIX forum...

btw, he didnt tell what are the part... sadly !

At this point, he confirmed that I will buy a GS724T I was planning to buy that, but wasn't sure about it.

Gave me a lot of new idea for my projet and he's almost using what I was planning, give him a great thanks !
