Just bought 213. Upgraded from 212j

Bought from where and how much did you pay for it?

Waiting for CEE price lists... wonder if there will be price revision since the last show.

Edit: Looks like the price list is out... checking now...

213Play - Dual core 1.6 Ghz and 1GB RAM and USB 3.0

In addition 213PLay has media streaming option

Looking at the specs, it is a model which tiers towards media server, hence the heavier price too.

213J is a budget friendly entry level NAS model. Its performance is not too bad, just that it has USB2.0 ports.

For easier comparison between models:

Hi, pardon my ignorant. Is the price quoted here include the hard disk or I must buy them separately?

hdds are sold separately.
anyway, the attitude of one of their staff leaves much to be desired. :vijayadmin:

I have no idea LOL :s13: it seems to be a lower spec-ed version. Anyway, I bought the 213J. Setup is a breeze esp from someone who has never setup a NAS before. The guy at Memory World recommended it for home users...anyway it suits my budget. Read and write speed is so much better than my WD My Book Live.

The 213+ is more for business users and it is now at $399 under promotion (cheaper than CEE 2013 show) $130 more than the 213J ($269), so for users who have a bigger wallet, the 213+ is a very good buy because its specs is almost the same as the 214. In fact the 213+ also has a SD card reader and eSATA port, making it more versatile than the 214. IMO.
