Melco have recently made some changes to their flagship N1ZS EX and N1ZH EX models.
Both machines haven’t changed per se and there is no model number change but essentially both models have brand new upgraded power supplies and both models now feature single hard drives.
The N1ZS has gone from 2 x 2 TB SSD drives to a single 4 TB SSD drive and the N1ZH has gone from 2 x 3 TB small form factor (2.5 inch) hard drives to a single 5 TB drive. Because they moved to single drives it means Melco have completely removed the processor intensive RAID controller that was used on both machines.
As a result of both of these changes I’m pleased to report there’s been a nice albeit subtle uplift in performance, nothing hugely dramatic, but any improvement is worth having, especially when there is no change to the of either model!
As a result of this change I have my demo models of the twin hard drive versions available to buy with a decent saving on them.
These models have been reduced to £7499.00 for the N1ZS (black) and the N1ZH (silver) is £3900, both models are as new, boxed with full warranty.
