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!

    Can I use 8 gb version of Raspberry Pi for the QUAD SATA KIT for this unit?

    We are happy to finally reach the situation that most of the products are available from stock. We just received a big shipment which will help us to resolve all back orders and supply you the way it should be. We are also happy to tell you, that this last batch includes improvements which are a fix to issues which came up during the previous shipment cycles.

    We thank you all for the patience you showed – please believe us it was really hard for us too!

    We did extend the reward for buying the kit with a free power supply for some more days. Take the chance and buy until the 8th of August!

    As always we are happy to receive your feedback and ideas on how to improve and of course what we do good! ;-)

    My RasPi 4 NAS kit arrived today (approx 3 months since order). Have to say I’m very happy and it seems to be working well with a Pi 4, 4 SSDs and OMV. Some of the paint/powder coating made the screw a little tight at first, but no real issue, Neat bit of kit! Thanks AllNetChina!

    40 days since my order, and 6 days since my e-mail in which I asked for some update on what’s going on. 4 months since the last update on your website. I should have checked that before I payed for your product. I still would like to have it, since my raspberry and sata drives are waiting for their home to settle in.
    Not happy.

    I found that review useless since it included zero benchmarks. Where are the benchmarks? Please share some.
