    I ordered from MegaBuy (using credit card) at 3pm on Monday. The order status was changed to "shipped" at around 9am this morning.

    By the way, one thing I've realised a LOT of people have completely overlooked - inside the drive bay door, you'll find both an allen key, and all the screws for both HDDs and a CD drive.
    It's easy to overlook in the enthusiasm :)

    Thanks for that :thumbup:

    I think I'll be making mine into a media center, so I'll probably not need that, looks cool though :)

    Not holding my breath...

    ...If theres any floating around that arent accounted for by previous posters, Id like to express interest in picking up another unit myself.

    Also interested in a ram stick from one of these if anybody has a spare.

    SE burbs in Melb a +.


    Hoping the unit I ordered when this thread was still at 1 page arrives soon. Been over a week!

    Sweet, I ordered mine about 4.45pm on Monday, and they've confirmed payment etc...now we play the waiting game I guess..

    Called them today, they said they are arriving at Megabuy today and they're going to post them out from there :)

    Havn't received my megabuy order yet, just ordered 1, payed via card on Friday. Wish these places gave you tracking numbers, another strike for using a drop-shipper.

    Mine arrived yesterday (megabuy order saturday lunchtime) dropship from Ingram Micro in Matraville.

    Still yet to decide if it will be a FreeNAS or ESXi box.

    Now to search for some 2Tb drives and RAM if y'all have left me any in Melbourne :lol:
