  1. Yup. We'll order through amazon, so will have plenty of time to fully test.
  2. Ok, cheers. I'll check with my boss soon, and probably order one of those.
  3. My only worry is the fact 5 people will each be editing a few .DWG files (and sometimes Revit files) straight from it. I had heard that the CPU in one of those wouldn't be able to keep up, do you think this is the case? I certainly think off the shelf would be easier, but I'm not sure it'd be the most economically viable option, especially for this use (sure if it was just a media server or backup, it would be a no brainer).
  4. The current server is literally just another one of the prebuilt i3 workstations we have, and is used at the same time as serving the files. (I did not set this up.) The machine would definitely be local, the internet speed is so poor it doesn't make sense to go off site. I'll have a further look at different types of RAID, especially the ones you mentioned. It is currently gigabit, and I wouldn't be able to convince them they need 10 gigabit. I don't really know much about SANs, so what advantages would they have over NASes?
  5. I work at a small (only 5 people working there max) engineering design company. We are currently hosting the server in a really shit way I wish we weren't (public folder on a work station). I have now been asked to look at upgrading this keeping it cheap. The main thing it needs to be able to do is store all of the company files (less than 500gb) and for everyone to be able to work on a couple files at a time. I would also like to implement some kind of redundancy. I am currently thinking of either a DIY freeNAS/NAS4free server or a prebuilt. I'm not entirely sure what spec I should be looking at to achieve this, and haven't found any prebuilt NASes that fit these needs. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
  6. That's what I thought, sadly. I had hoped someone on here might have been able to tell me otherwise. Thanks anyway.
  7. One of my friends is having a problem with his computer BSODing. He first had the problems on every start up and now, after a reinstall of windows, it BSODs if he tries to install the driver for his graphics card (an R7850). Is there anything anyone can suggest trying? Thanks in advance.
  8. My current keyboard is a rubbish iPazzport HTPC membrane keyboard. I have also never had a mechanical keyboard.
  9. Yeah, seems like a good smart watch. Below is a review of it by 'Canoopsy'. Have to say it looks promising.
  10. I'm looking to upgrade my WiFi router. Preferably, it would have dual band AC and a Gigabit switch, and be £60 - £100. Any recommendations? Many thanks.
  11. Thanks. I was thinking about this, and assumed it would be my only option, but was hoping there would be a cheaper(free)/better way of doing this. I will probably just order a nice cheap switch though.
  12. I have, that's where I've come stuck. The only power saving is manual for certain times, which is WiFi only. (This is turned off.)
  13. I have just finished wiring my PC directly into the router, but have found it turns off ports after a certain amount of inactivity, meaning WOL will no longer work, (it was previously working with Ethernet over power line). My router is the BT home hub 3, and my question is how do I keep the ports from going to sleep while my PC is in sleep mode. Thanks
  14. Thanks for your help. I'll get a relatively cheap switch and connect it to the router through the one Gbps port.
