Yes! I just got back from out of town and all 4 of my orders came in. I did 4 order of 2 drives each. Luckily I had 4 of those $15 off $100 coups. Sorry for everyone that got screwed over by Staples on this deal
I am going to have fun making my Raid 5 movie sever on the weekend with all these drive. I will be taking them all out of the enclosures. I had a 5 x 2tb hard drive raid 5 setup that i made from a previous black friday /cyber monday deal but I ran out of space so fast. Those dang blu-ray rips take up so much space at 45+gb a pop

Reason: dumb misspelling
I got my 2, came in just now. I hope they are ok, Staples needs to package these better... one of the HD boxes looks to be a little crushed on one side, I have not opened it up yet, but it looks to be ok?
I love this drive. The printer server works well and the throughput for streaming is much better than my 2-bay NAS that is not gigabit. I can stream high bit rate 1080p movie wirelessly to my BluRay player which is gigabit connected to an access point. If I use non-gigabit device at either hand (using a media player or the other NAS without gigabit), I get stuttering.
It was easy to set up and my computers, tablet, media player, and bluray player see the drive immediately. My blueray can only see the public folder though.
I was kinda sad I missed out on this deal.
VinniChase, if you are looking to rid yourself of any of the external enclosure, I would love to have one or two for network storage at work.
I dont have any use for any of my enclosures... these are cheap 2TB drives for me to pop out the enclosure so I jumped on it, that and the regular Ext. HDs on sale were OOS, so I had to settle for these.
I setup the software but can't figure this out. I can't just map the drive in Windows correctly. It says the Drive is 100mb in size. Also during configuration it has 4 types of folders. I can't delete any. I just want one whole drive to store my movies. How would I do this? Pretty confusing.
