I am, and this is my current setup - however I'd prefer the NAS to be in the loungeroom. It also doesn't solve the reliability issues of...

No, sorry never used the heater. We’ve got in-slab heating so have never used this unit for anything but cooling.

The Crucial has an endurance rating of 360TB written, whereas a (similarly priced) Samsung Evo 860 has 600TB. I'm holding out for the evos...

A bit far to go, but they had 2 of them in the Canberra Airport Aldi about a week ago when I was there
