which box? - 12-March-2010, 21:35

Hi guys,
I'm after either a TM500 or a 600 because they are cheap.
i would rather buy the 500 as it is cheaper and i am buying queit a few of these boxes to run within my private network so i will end up saving a lot of money!

so which one do you recommend? how exactly is the 600 superior to the 500?

should i buy the 600 as a host and the 500 as a client?

is there any other cheap recievers that you recommend?
Thanks in advance,
Mubs

same box with one exception
TM600 has the ability to add a hard drive, the TM500 doesn't
Simple as that

is that the only exception mate?
is the performance of both boxes exactly the same?

if that's the case then i'd rather go for the 500

would anybody be able to tell me what is the maximum number of clients they can host using this reciever without crashes and instabilities?
just want to get a theoretical measure as to how far i can push my network

Kind regards,
CrazyFool

the card is nds and my broadband speed is high enough to host about 60 people.
i'm referring more towards the stability of the box. ie. how many people it can host before it starts behaving erratically.

Thanks,
Crazy

Sounds like your creating a big commercial server to fund your student beer and ***** nights
If it is just between mates, you dont have to worry, the little 500 will be ample. The box however wont do anywhere near 60 peers. And there would never be a scenario where you would need that many, imo
