    I would give it to a mate of mine who cannot afford much beyond basic necessities. He has a laptop that is a few years old and some fairly ordinary broadband and he works in the community where he lives mentoring and empowering the youth in his neighborhood. He gives so much of himself and his family that it would be great to provide him with a device he can use to back up all his data, family photos and other digital memories.

    My primary use for the Thecus N2310 would be a media server. Definite upgrade from the old system.

    I'd use the Thecus N2310 to keep all of my kids media on so it's not clogging up my media folders! I am SO SICK of Peppa Pig! :p

    I would be using the Thecus to store all my photos and movies, using the Plex app for streaming around the house and the T-on-the-go app for showing off photo of my kids to people who don't really want to see them, all using not much power so I can keep it on all of the time.

    I'd give it to the Secretary of my community group and set it up to sync with my own NAS so we always have up to date backups of our event photos, videos, etc - rather than relying on us swapping portable hard drives (which we pretty much never actually remember to do) or paying for a cloud backup subscription (which we don't have the funds for).

    The Thecus N2310 would be an awesome addition to my home network because of its great streaming performance, flexibility and simple setup!

    As the primary custodian of my parents network (my Dad is an old school plumber who thinks computers are evil) I would use the Thicus N2310 as a backup unit for their files as well as a offsite backup for my family photo's etc. . It would also be perfect because my Dad just purchased a new Samsung Smart TV with Plex Support - meaning I won't have to set up a Plex server for them. He would just connect to the Thicus!

    The Thecus would give me a reliable storage solution that doesnt constanly crash and require a restart half way through a movie

    I could move all of my movies off my main NAS drive and make this Thecus N2310 my primary media device to serve movies and audio to my media player.

    I would use it for networked storage, to finally remove all the extra drives out of my main computer, to stream to tv, so I could actually watch some of the stuff I have.

    It would also be used for backups of photos, videos of precious memories of our 3 kids, plus the photos of my other family members, some of them photos is all we have left, so they are important memories.

    I need a centralized media host instead of unplugging external hard drive, moving it, plugging it back in. rinse, repeat.

    Want to upgrade to a micro-ATX setup, meaning I need to move to a more compact storage solution. This little box looks perfect for this purpose. Just had a read through the features; there's a lot this thing can do. For instance, I wouldn't have even thought of using it as a print server.

    If I were to win this, I would feel obligated to write a review on the device and show how useful it is as a data storage solution for my home network :)

    Use the inbuilt Plex server and Chromecast, spare android phone, and the kids lounge-room media needs are sorted.

    A Thecus NAS would be a brilliant upgrade to my HDD + USB port on router solution I'm using for my household backup solutions.

    I'm also super interested to see the dropbox module in action as I'm currently using Dropbox to backup my select important files and it would be great to have my NAS synced as well.
