Well those are almost reasonable prices.

To bad they don't have four drive bays like the others coming out.

It is nice that it can be a simple plug and play for across platforms. Yet for the price of TB drives nowadays, it probably would be better to go with something that has more than two bays. Then use the MyBook or passports for the XBox.

Hmm sounds like it could be a duplicate for the LG NAS units which come with either a DVD burner or Blu-ray burner for backup purposes. Pricing is very close, capabilities are similar.
