what i meant to say was the $199 listed on the website was in United States Dollars. I bought it at the IT show at Suntec Level 6 in Singapore for 209 Singapore Dollars.
I have my own FTP service running off a webhost already, so no big deal. And that's 100GB of server space! don't know how i'm going to finish using it.
I got it more for backup since it runs a RAID1, and also to stream media to my PS3 at home. coolness! not to mention the ability to download torrents without having the PC turned on. But then again..who downloads stuff using bit torrents? It's bad for you! hehe
Yea, i understand that u got it for SGD209.
Juz making a joke out of the conversion rate by the importer/manufacturer in view of the ailling US economy
BTW, care to share which FTP service u using? I'm looking for one too....
i'm using godaddy.com
they're a domain registrar too, so can just buy domain from them, and get a webhosting plan. i paid $180 for 3 years of 100gb hosting (web & FTP), 1000gb bandwidth a month.
it's been almost 3 years already, and only outage once. so far so good...
