I know of someone whose hdd died about two hours after he received his unit. You know that 'do not cover' hole that the hdd's have? It was covered with the glue used to attach the backing plate to the hdd. We simply replaced the drive and everything was cool. I've still got the drive if anyone knows if there's a way I can get it to work again.

NZ power is the same as here in Aus isn't it? So just buy the Australian version off the Europe web site and it will come with the appropriate power adapter. In fact, I think the only difference between the archoses for different countries is the power adapter you get.
