Do you like custom designed cases?

Send us some comments, we will post them in our next blog entry!

Status update

The tensions over here are growing because we are really pushing hard to get the shipments out.

One batch of casings has arrived, but at the moment electronics lag behind.

Just to give you an idea on how dramatically schedules have changed during the corona outbreak.

Before the usual PCB board manufacturing time was between 10 to 14 days (depending of the size and quantity ofc). At the moment the delivery time changed to 25 working days which is hard to get used to.

Mostly it is related to missing labor, which gradually is improving now.

We think and hope that by the end of March the outbreak in China will be under control and measures taken should ease. We do not really know what will happen, but for sure after March a large amount of people will be able to return.

What happens while you wait....

Quite some of you have been watching the Youtube review from Novaspirit about the Quad Sata Kit.

We did read your comments there and used the time to do some improvements. Because the case is very compact, the airflow is an important factor to keep the temperature under control.

To improve, we are adding openings to the bottom plate which increases the air flow and also has a positive impact on the noise level.

We returned all the base plates of this batch to the factory. They are expected to return them within the next two days which means all of the shipments will already have the improvements done.

Since a few of the copper bolts broke when we shipped the first batch, we decided to pre-assemble them on the base plate to avoid this to happen. We also did re-tap the threads after the painting process to make assembly easier.

We as well will update product pictures of the Quad Sata NAS kit, because some of you asked for more details. You should find them next to the product description soon.

Stay tuned!

    Glad to hear it. Thank you for refining in the meantime! How far along is PCB production?
