    I bought this last saturday and its busted already. The keyboard doesnt work. 2 weeks to fix according to MSI.

    Sobrang hassle. I was adding a 2nd SSD (1tb) and the keyboard went kaput.

    So much regret haha. Sana i kept it stock.

    That is some serious gaming machine.

    Wag nang manghinayang, sooner or later, you will increase the drive capacity din naman. At least covered pa nang warranty since fairly new pa.

    But im parted from it haha. Oh well. At least there is light at the end of the tunnel in terms of warranty.

    Using this older one for now. It has a GTX 1080 but it is too big. Not portable.

    Any suggestions or tips for setting up a home NAS?
    I just connect hard drives via usb to a usb 3.0 8port hub and then connect to an old i7 laptop repurposed as a file and print server. I have like 20tb of downloaded files.

    I use PLEX to serve up the video. I also use Airvideo HD to serve the files to IOS devices.

    I cant figure out how to make PLEX stream to devices out of my home network.

    That's a good way to repurpose old hardware. Thanks for the suggestion, I have a few old laptops lying around, I'll think about going that route (although I will miss the redundancy that RAID will give me...).

    ... 20TB! I thought my 5TB worth of files were a lot

    For the most important files i leave the redundancy to the cloud. Google Backup and google drive are so worth it. There is a monthly cost but its very minimal and the peace of mind is there. I use it for all family pictures and videos.

    Movie and tv series files i just retire the old drives and then copy their contents to newer ones as i buy them. Wd Has much better reliability than seagate in my experience. Ive lost 3 seagate drives already to failure.

    Cloud storage is good as long as there's high-speed broadband available. Sadly, I'm stuck with DSL for now.

    Agreed with Seagate's crappy reliability. Had their drives, both internal and portable, fail on me. All my rust spinners are now WD, and I'll likely add HGST if and when I build a NAS. I've read some great reviews about HGST drives, so I might as well try them out.

    If only SSDs were cheaper... Intel and Samsung have some new QLC drives upcoming, I hope these lead the way to price drops and increases in capacity, and keep the reliability high.
