UK price?

If every other piece of tech ever is an indicator, a US price of $1,899.99 will equate to at least £1,899.99 in the UK. New laptop models, graphics cards and other devices always seem to just swap the $ for a £ on the price tag :(

The UK could easily fix this

Just need to create a lot of debt somehow to devalue your currency to match that of the United States. Or you could just print more of it.

For backup only?

I bought one of the 220's to see how it would work as an office NAS and I'm not impressed with the performance - actually getting data in and out of the device seems slow - at least compared with my 10 year old FreeBSD server.

Admittedly I'm running one disk to try it out and while I'd expect RAID 0 would be somewhat faster, I'll probably go for RAID 5 for the reliability. But the price is right and maybe I can junk the 2kW UPS that the existing server requires.

Only 60 days?

Does it turn into a pumpkin after 60 days? Does it change to 1 TB after 60 days?

To all you miserable shits who automatically assume the sterling price will be a straight 1:1 exchange I suggest you apologise.

It actually works out cheaper here in Blighty. At the current exchange rate of $1.5709:£1 the US price works out at £1209.47 + local taxes.

Here in the UK the price at Insight is £1,008.99 + VAT = £1,185.23

Vulgar language for no good reason makes you look ... vulgar. And dumb ... and immature.

Also, insulting other people demeans you.

Grow up and stand proud. :)
