    it's black and shiny - Terastation

    Had my 2TB Terrastation delivered this morning.

    Setup on these is a breeze plug them in see what ip it's picked up on the lcd and then do the rest from the web interface.

    They come configured as RAID5 so that only gives me 1.5TB of usable storage but that should be enough for the time being. I don't really like the idea of the 2 usb ports at the back for adding more storage in the form of usb hard drives as this just seems a kludge.

    I also bought a SmartUPS 750 to go with it and protect it in the event of power failure and again the setup was all done via the web interface and very easy. Pulled the plug on the ups and 30 seconds later the TS shutdown so that works.

    It did take 10minutes to copy a gig of data over the network though but that was via a 10/100 connection and I intend to plug it into a 1000 when it's in its new home.

    Mine won't be used in anger until I've setup up my new fileserver and moved everything around over the summer but it just turned up so I had to unbox it
