Good find indeed Dave. Best I can find at NewEgg Canada is $119.99, which isn't not bad, but it's still a $20 bill.

I was just about to post this myself, but I thought I better get my order in before I post about it. Deals this good have a way of selling out really quick. Just bought two of these to replace some aging WDEADS20's. Plus I wanted to see how well the Reds would work in my WHS V1 box. The WDEADS20's are getting all but impossible to find at a good price. And when you do, the drive is usually already out of warranty even if it is still in the factory sealed package. To their credit, I have to hand it to WD's good Customer Service. I recently bought a NEW WDEADS20 from an ebay seller, but with a Nov 2009 Manufactured date. It was a good bit of trouble, but WD extended my warranty out a full three years from the date I bought it. Awesome!

When are you going to move to the states where everything but the cold is better?

I'm afraid the culture is just a little too different.

      So I'm trying to replace my ageing HP Proliant Microserver N54L. It's used as a general dogs body server, running Blue Iris, Plex and as my NAS server.
      I'm on a pretty tight budget but the poor server is always at 90% + CPU because of the CCTV and I'm looking at adding a second camera soon.
      Is there such a thing as a reasonably priced ECC home server build?
      My MVP is 8GB ECC memory, with 4 threads on the CPU. 
      I'd prefer a small form factor but that's like gold dust unless you throw a lot of $$££€€ at it. I've got to get this past my partner you see 😅
      Any ideas? I'm not loyal to any particular brand, so long as it works.

      Hi guys!
      The HP Smart Array P222 (firmware v8.00) can't see WD RE4 WD2002FYPS drivers (4x2Tb). If I use it in HP Smart Array B120i it's ok.

      Synology C2 Backup Now Available to US Customers
       
      This is a data backup service that Synology released to EU customers last year.  I remember trying to get it to install and it wouldn't take my CC# because of location.  Fair enough, will it now and how much will it cost?
       
       

       
      Seriously, how much is it?  Ask Google and on March 25th, 2018 it's $14.12.  That's still not a bad price for 100Gb of backup with versioning. Also not bad to consider this as a secondary cloud backup.  (See below for pricing)
       
      One thing to keep in mine this is a service that falls under Hyper Backup and not Cloud Sync.  The two are very different.  This will be a true back with versioning and not a simple synchronization of a folder in a cloud service like dropbox.  Many a mistake have been made with sync pairs and cloud services!  That won't happen with backup and versions.
       
      Enable it and Back Up
       
      In your Synology DSM go to Hyper Backup. Install if you are not using it.  You would also use this app to backup to USB, Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, etc.
      Select Synology C2 Cloud Backup.

       
      That should launch a login portal.  If you have used Synology services before and have a login you can use those credentials or create credentials right here.
       
      Start your free trial for 30 days but prices are still in POUNDS!  That's a pound symbol right?  If it was released to Europe why isn't it in Euros? I'm so confused.    (it is Euro Dave!  I had a brain fart on the Euro symbol.  See response post below.  Embarrassingly laughing at myself on this!)
       
      It's here where it wouldn't let me proceed last time I tried due to it being a limited trial to EU customers only.  You have to put your CC# in to get the 30 day free trial.  It says i'm in the Europe Frankfort market but the purchase went through.  So, does this mean if the US sinks into the Ocean and all my data goes with it, my photos will be in Frankfort safe and sound?  Sweet!
       

       
      This is the last web screen I see as it has now taken me back to Hyper Backup.

       
      I'm going to choose a small amount to get started with.
       

       
       

       
      I'm also going to limit the bandwidth of the backup and set Client Side encryption.  The encryption password box will allow you to use the Admin account password so you don't forget what you put here unless your Admin password is less than 8 characters.
       
      Once you are finished it will ask you if you want to backup now. I said now just to keep the network clean while I'm working but it will backup tonight.  Look at the screen shot below.  See the little arrow by Synology C2?  That is the link to the web portal.  It would be nice to see Synology integrate this into DSM so there isn't a secondary screen needed.  It would also be nice to have some choice as to where your data is being sent and to be charged a proper amount.  I'm afraid my bank might also charge me a fee for the Pounds to USD conversion.  I'll update the post when I find out.
       

       
      Here are the web portal screens below.

       

       
      That's it.  It works!
