Please let me know if your one has a SATA power socket.

 

That scum-sucking and dishonest seller, "Shenzhen Helor Cloud"  who I bought my two from, after offering $10 compensation for the missing SATA pwr socket, which I rejected, has now removed that offer and now claims that "This new model cannot use a standard SATA drive" and can only be used with an mSATA drive. He did this one day before my dispute has gone to arbitration, and that's what Aliexpress will see. Funny how one of them did have a socket and both came with SATA data and pwr cables. If anyone's interested in getting one of these, I'd recommend one of the other sellers, e.g. this one: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/1608019

 

 

On Aliexpress if you go to "My Orders", find the order, "View Detail", and then click on the product it should show a snapshot of the listing at the time you bought it (the URL will start with http://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/...).

Unfortunately the original and current listings don't mention the use of SATA drives at all. They only state "Sound Card - 1 MSATA3.0 support 6gb/s" which of course has nothing to do with the sound card. I believe from the reviews left there, and the fact that they come with SATA data and pwr cables, that they must be intended to be used. They also seemed quite surprised I'd received one without the socket initially, but I guess they have a way out because the listing doesn't mention it. I see the price has just risen 25% and freight  has risen from zero to US$43.16 for China Post, from that seller, so another good reason to avoid that seller.  





Tivo upgrades to operate with the new OzTivo EPG, support and service. Over 300 performed here so far.
