I saw Plexor, and immediately assumed this would be overpriced. I am somewhat surprised that it has a reasonable price.

[citation][nom]perpetual98[/nom]And they're only charging $170 each for $85 drives. Mighty nice of them.[/citation]
Empty NAS boxes with these capabilities cost ~$150+, so other than not having a clue wtf are you on about?

Let's go through the math, shall we? $225 for the empty NAS. A little spendy, but not terrible. You want 2x1TB drives in that from them? $565. $565-$225=$340. $340/2=$170. The last two 1TB drives that I bought were $85. To quote you, "other than not having a clue wtf are you on about"

Hey genius, these probably aren't "Green Line" entry hard drives. RE3's and ES.2 drives are about $150 a piece for 1TB. We are talking Plextor here, not Netgear or DLink NAS's.

I purchased WD Black 1 TB drives for $89 aprox 4 months ago so I would have to agree that they are over charging for the drives. With that being said however, Just purchase the empty NAS box version.
