There are a lmited number of manufacturers that could supply the hard
disk, so reliability of the disk itself is a relatively moot point.
However as far as the logic of the device itself goes then it's anyone's
If it turns out to be the worst the you end up paying €140 for a 500GB
disk. But a quick glance at Komplett shows this:
750GB, 32MB cache for €79.
Granted that is a barebones disk but they also have a Buffalo 500GB NAS
with similar spec to the Lidl jobby for €257.
