    ** REDUCED 01/08/2016 TO £265 DELIVERED - FINAL REDUCTION **

    I have to reluctantly let my NAS go due to wanting to migrate to a Macbook Pro from my current windows 10 setup. I have been using the NAS for data storage and running a Plex server from, but my need for a Macbook is greater than my want to keep this.

    ** I would be more than willing to listen to offers of trades on a 13" Macbook Pro 2015 in warranty depending on the spec of course **


    I am offering for sale here the following....

    A QNAP TS-453Pro 4 bay NAS in full working order, fully boxed as new.
    It was purchased on 23/11/2015 from Dabs, and invoice can be provided for warranty purposes.
    I have upgraded the RAM to 8GB from its stock 2GB.

    I have sold the disks, so this is now surplus to requirements hence the reduced price of £265 delivered (was £350 the £325 then £300 then £290 then £280)

    SOLD ITEMS

    I also have 4 x 6TB WD Red drives, all purchased at the same time from eBuyer just over 2 months ago on the 18/05/2016. Again I can provide an invoice for warranty purposes (they have 2 years 10 months or so left on them). - £150 each delivered or £580 delivered for the 4 - All 4 sold to nimbu.

    Price and currency: £265
    Delivery: Delivery cost is included
    Payment method: BT
    Location: Croydon, Surrey
    Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

    Hey,

    Do you come into central at all?

    If not, would you mind pm'ing me a postcode?
    I'm interested in all the drives however prefer the option to collect or meet up somewhere.

    Hey mate,

    Turns out one of my team members lives 5 mins away and has "offered" to pick them up for me. Been doing some thinking and I also do need to purchase a new nas as well (trying to decide between 8 or 12 bay), I would like to offer 450 for three drives collected. Cash on collection

    Thanks for the offer. I stand to be corrected but I believe the going rate for these drives is £170 delivered. If so the best I can do will be £490 collected for 3.

    Edit - After consideration I will accept £450 collected for the three drives if the offer is still on the table?

    Were you looking at 3 or all 4 of them (this makes a difference to the time it will take me to clear them - Also zero writing a 6TB Hdd takes HOURS! and I have 4 of them!)

    If nimbu doesn't want the 4th drive I'll take it for the asking price of £150 delivered.

    Yeah thats fine mate. As I am not the one collecting, I would assume it would be either an weekday evening or on a weekend, if you want to let me know a couple of times then I can speak to my team member and get back to you with one.

    I'm not in an uber rush so no stress that they have to be ready tomorrow!

    Let me have a quick chat. I'm working from home today so I cant give him cash today and I think me asking him to pay for me might be a little too far (im a nice manager!).

    If he can make it Sunday, i'll just transfer the full amount to ya today. If hes coming Monday I can BT you a deposit and then give him the cash to pay the rest of pick up.

    Ill check in with him shortly and let you know.

    And a very cheeky offer too :). Ots worth £290 at stock, without the extra 8GB memory I have included. Thanks for the offer but I'll pass.

    Chrisfxz - Sorry mate, can clear £290+ on Ebay with this setup so wont be going anywhere near £250 delivered.

    w3dal - Yes I have been using the NAS as a Plex server using the Plex app Qnap provide. I ran it wirelessly to my LG TV and several NowTV Boxes across the house without issue.

    W3dal - Could do it with 2GB ram (i.e stock spec) for £265 delivered. If you want the 8GB ram I will need the full £280 I am afraid. Its a ridiculous price as it is, so I cannot drop any more for the same spec, and £15 for 8GB of ram is also ridiculous!

    Current price for the 2GB unit on Amazon is £399 so this really is a bargain with either the 2GB or the 8GB ram installed.
