    Well for one it can open any port it wants, if it's compromised it can open any port to any service and you are non-the-wiser to it doing it. Beyond that let's say there is a web service on something, let say a security camera. The web service itself is legit, but it uses UPNP to open a port to itself for easy access for you, but you may not want that and when it does that lo and behold your security camera is now on the internet for anyone to access. I hope you can and have changed that password and its not just an open stream, not to mention the poor security and updates on these kinds of devices to start with. If you leave the door open for what you want, you also leave it open for what you don't want. Better to have a little manual work to forward those ports and manage the allowed connections and be more secure than 90% of people than to be one of the 90%. Excluding big companies, high-value individuals and alike that are targets in and of themselves for a hack, the best security you can have is being harder to target than the next guy, most of these people who want to build SPAM networks want to get as many endpoints, not penetrate the hard ones. Bit like the old story, I do not have to outrun the tiger, I only have to outrun you

Edit: Stand corrected found it for £457.75 but not sure if its UK Spec Whats the difference between: P04923-S01 and P04923-421 Edit 2: P04923-xxx Country Code Key xxx = S01, 001 Americas xxx = 291 Japan xxx = 375 AP xxx = 421 EMEA

    MS Gen10 x3421 8GB is $369 in the US. I do consider myself to be a bit more than just a Microserver resource. 🙂

    So @Grahammm, is this a 1st post question or just a means to get that link published? More often than not an insurance company knows about this stuff right? The initial questioning usually entails a DIY vs. a monitored system like the one you referred us to. Is that what you are looking at? Come back and have a chat.

    Since Richard is running the mini box, the Synology gets my vote. I am definitely happy with my Synology so much so they keep multiplying, up to 4 with 2 expansion bays. I run Plex on an old gaming PC and simply point to my network mapped Synology shares. From limited research with Qnap they have some way to replicate Synology's SHR and SHR2, but it sounded more like a hack. Admittedly I didn't do a deep dive into it though since I have been happy with Synology. On the topic of SHR and disk use. Their handy RAID calculator is great for playing around with various scenarios. https://www.synology.com/en-us/support/RAID_calculator SHR will use the smallest drive to determine the amount of free space up to the third drive. Upon adding the fourth drive it will add whatever size drive the next smallest drive so 2x1TB and 1x4TB and 1x8TB will net you 6TB with 4TB unused until you match the 8TB. SHR2 extends this to the sixth drive which is why I only run SHR2 in the 8+ bay models.

    I've only done a single transfer test with a 6GB zip file from a server to my Surface Pro 4 (only computer that I have that has AC wifi). It averaged around 15Mb/s with a peek or 37Mb/s. A download of the same file over the gigabit lan was 101Mb/s. I never tested the old setup, of course it only supported N. I'm less concerned with the speed as I'm with the stability of the connection. Our old wifi setup would regulatory drop connections even when we had a strong signal. We would often have to reconnect our mobile devices to the wifi, sometime as many as 4 time in an hour.

    Nice! Old Macbooks work well too! I like those small form-factor x-series Thinkpads so much I thought hard about that x200, but can't justify it and think of a place I'd use it. They're so bulletproof and utilitarian though. Back in it's prime, that x230 was maxed out with 16Gb of RAM and TWO SSD drives. There's a bay for a regular one, and I found you could add an M.2 drive to a slot under the keyboard. So it was dual-boot Windows/Linux for several years. I just got the x270, but haven't had time to see if it can be set up that same way. A lot of what I love about those is that you CAN still upgrade things. As much as I like my MacBook Pro and Surface Pro 4, neither one can be upgraded in any way without lots of work and the risk of breakage. Great machines, but much harder to "pimp your rig".

    I've just used the startech pcie m2 nvme adapter with a 1tb samsung 970 pro nvme as a boot drive for win 10, got it right before i read the news about the evo pluses coming out, i had it in the 8x bay and got full speed - very nice, that was crazy fast, but now ive shifted it off to the 1x and put a radeon pro wx4100 in the 8x slot, the 1x slot still gives me 4x better speed than sata2 which ive been used to up til now using the odd bay on a my gen 8's for ssds, also have a 12tb seagate helium drive in there and will probably fill the rest of the bays out with them, and also plan to put another ssd in this machines odd bay for some kind of cache.. heres the benchmark of my current setups nvme boot drive in the 1x slot
