Q. What eTRAYz stands for ?
A. The new Xtreamer NAS eTRAYz incorporate revolutionary feature that allow you use your 2 bay NAS (4 Terabyte) like Disk on key or any extrenal portable USB storage you have.

For that price I highly doubt it will matter that it supports gigabit. I doubt it will go past the 10MB/s. They're they're free to send me a sample and I'll test that. And filling 4TB at sluggish speeds is a hell.

Not quite true - only people who bought Xtreamer Media Player via xtreamer.net eSHOP, will be rewarded, all others who bought it via reseller (there are cheaper and quicker options...) will pay 99€ for eTRAYz:(:(:(

A fool and his money....

I purchased an etrayz/Xtreamer combo on Dec 27, 2009. When I got them the Xtreamer worked great right out of the box. I popped in a 500mb drive and shared it over my network. Download direct to the Xtreamer. Works great.

The eTrays NAS is an expensive paper weight. Mine stopped working after about 2 weeks. I worked with the tech support and finally they agreed to replace it and refund my return shipping with a credit. I packed everything up a few weeks later a replacement arrived without a power adapter. They informed me that I was not to send in the power adapter, only the device?!?!?! After a few weeks and several IM"s back and forth, they informed me a new power adapter would be shipped. That was over a month ago and they still inform me that "I need to wait as it is necessary". Today is March 9, 2010 and still nothing. I don't even know if this replacement works as I cannot power it up. I think I have to resolve in the fact that I now have a very expensive paper weight on my shelf (sure looks cool though). I read the reviews on how exciting this device will be. Remember what your mother said: if it's too good to be true, it usually is. :(

Well, I have to say that I have been wrong a little bit. I have meanwhile managed to get the deal althout I have not bought Xtreamer via Xtreamer eSHOP. All I had to do was providing my s.n. of Xtreamer to Xtreamer.net eSHOP ...and they sent my eTRAYz for special price.

About supporting issues or problems I can not comment as I have no probs so far.
