Hello friends Skooter Blog, Today I talk about a purchase in DealExtreme de to USB Server / NAS / FTP / SAMBA / Print / UPNP / Share + BitTorrent client (Standalone BitTorrent BT Client + USB/NAS/FTP/SAMBA/Printer/UPNP Sharing Network LAN Server) and an Epoxy adhesive Araldite AB 5-Minutes (Super Cola) (Araldite 5-Minute AB Epoxy Adhesive (Super Glue)).
I found some time this gadget USB Server / NAS / FTP / SAMBA / Print / UPNP / Share + De BitTorrent client we will call the NS-K330, model, for encurtar. The NS-K330 is a mini-computer with network, may be connected to a router and take a series of functions. One is the role of NAS (Network Storage Attached), that allows him to connect one or more external hard drives, flash drives or other storage devices so that they are shared by all computers on the network. It also makes the function print server, can share a printer with all PCs on the network, this is one of the features that made me buy it. For anyone who does a lot of downloads torrents but regrets having to leave the computer turned on only for that (eletric energy spending), it also has a built-in BitTorrent client for downloading and can get the files to a hard drive or flash drive that is connected to it, leaving the PC free to be turned off.
Besides all this, You can further expand the possibilities using an alternative firmware, made by independent developers, called SnakeOS. With it have DDNS client, Web server, FTP server, etc. in addition to sharing with samba, the print server, etc. The SnakeOS is based on Linux, so I can connect via terminal (SSH) and even use it to “wake up” my computer with Wake-on-Lan (WOOL) when I need to use it remotely and it entered into stand by. Wake-on-lan packets can be sent locally (the vast majority of routers do not forward the), in order to have the NS-K330 always connected to the local network and accessible via the Internet offers this and other possibilities.
But enough about the NS-K330 for the time being, for he will have a more detailed review in the coming days. Today I will speak just buy the DealExtreme. To buy it I decided to use my DX points accumulated over the more than 2 shopping in years DealExtreme, obtained with photos, reviews and videos sent by DealExtreme, beyond the indirect collaboration of you, the Skooter Blog readers. How can only purchase products with DX Points having a pending application (not yet sent) I decided to buy and pay Epoxy adhesive Araldite AB 5-Minutes (Super Cola) to have an open order and be able to use DX Points to order the USB Server / NAS / FTP / SAMBA / Print / UPNP / Share + De BitTorrent client (NS-K330). A Araldite glue I have not had opportunity to use, and I hope not to have, since no one is happy to have something broken :), but I will do a detailed review when to use it.
The purchase was made in 03/08/2010, I sent a ticket asking to add the NS-K330 on the same day, and so did. Shipping was done the next day, 04/08. Despite the price of cola only be $4,70 USD (U.S. dollars two), and it was just that the total I paid, sending was done registered and received a tracking number. Formerly the DealExtreme only put tracking the actual amount paid was above $15,00 USD, but now seems to also consider the value of the product, even if he has been resgtado with DX Points. The Hong Kong Post indicates that the package left Hong Kong for Brazil in 09/08. No give 11/08 he was already shown as received in Brazil by mail, and on day 16/08 it was delivered. I think this has been the fastest package I have ever received the DealExtreme, they were just 12 calendar days of total time, only 8 days. Day 11/08 as received in Brazil appears to be correct, it left Hong Kong only 2 days before and we have to consider that the flight is not direct. And from there were only 3 working days to deliver at home, in other words, was a release in record time by the IRS, and the mail did his part forwarding the package quickly to my city.

Despite being somewhat beefy, the package was not taxed and there is no stamp of revenue. A DealExtreme now puts the description of the individual items and values for each. A cola came as “PROFESSIONAL” and the NS-K330 came as “NETWORKING”. The value of cola came as $7,43 And the HKD NS-K330 came as $90,84 HKD, equivalent to approximately U.S. $ 1,05 and R $ 20,23, respectively. Even the individual weights has been written, 59 grams to cola and 371 grams to NS-K330, a total of 430 grams, that is over-written with a pen as 440 grams. The package also has something written in ink, I managed to decipher “NAS” and a date “12-08-2010” whose number 2 was overwritten with a 6, turning “16-08-2010”. I do not know what that means.
