I am selling four (4) Terra-Master F5-422 devices, I paid $599 each for these, you pay only $400 and that includes shipping to the continental USA. I’m giving up on NASes because they add too many variables to your Chia farm (apparently) and the Chia team recommends against NASes in general.
Full specs at TerraMaster F5-422 10GbE NAS 5-Bay Network Storage Server Intel Quad-core CPU with Hardware Encryption but here’s a summary:
- Intel® Celeron J3455 quad-core 1.5 GHz processor
- 4GB RAM
- Five 3.5" / 2.5" drive bays (up to 90tb storage 5 × 18tb)
- Dual USB superspeed ports
- one 10 gigabit ethernet port (also works at 2.5gbps and 1gbps)
- two 1 gigabit ethernet ports
There is not one single thing wrong with these NASes they all work perfectly fine. I’ve tried them in RAID 0 mode (primarily), in RAID 5 mode, JBOD, and “one volume per disk” mode and everything works smoothly, the web UI is clear and straightforward, and they set up nice and easy. I was getting 400-500 megabytes per second of throughput out of these with the striping, so the hardware inside can indeed accommodate a fast network, if you have one.
Will not include original box, but will include
- NAS (aluminum shell)
- five drive bay caddies
- power brick
I am only shipping to the USA… and if you buy more than one, you get a discount!
