Anyone received their DS418play yet ?

I ordered mine and unfortunately as to be expected Plex is fine when direct play but when transcoding to my ipad for example it just keep lagging.

I think I will return mine.

I’m still waiting for mine. When did you place your order and get delivery? I don’t use Plex, but I read hardware transcoding works well using the DS Video app. Unless you have Plex Pass it’s software transcoding.

Mine was originally saying 01/15/18. Now just got an update today saying 03/06/18. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Might have to cancel and find a different option at this rate.

What delivery dates are people getting from Dell for the 418play? I ordered mine on Boxing Day with an estimated delivery date of 02-Jan-2018, then when checking on my order status it was moved to 19-Feb-2018 and now it’s showing 27-Mar-2018. I’ve already sold my old NAS on Kijiji expecting delivery on the 2nd. I’ve called a few times and all they can tell me is that they are waiting on receiving units from their supplier. Oddly enough, on the product page it says shipping on 22-Jan-2018.

Has anyone received theirs yet?

Any update? Mine was January 4, shifted to March 2.

I contacted Dell chat and they said that it was a bug in the system that it was displaying March and that internally they had a date of January 25th. Not sure what to believe now.
I called and they gave me a date of 23-Jan-2018. I hope they stick to it.

My original delivery date was 1/18. Now it says 3/15. Ridiculous! Gonna cancel and buy elsewhere...

If mine isn’t here by the 23rd like they said, I’m cancelling my order.

I got mine shipped today, but I looked my credit card transaction history Dell never charged money since last silent cancellation.

What does it mean?
Mine shipped today as well. Credit card is not showing a pending transaction yet.

Mine said 3/15 but got a shipment notification today. Already got the 918+ from Newegg last week for $780 all in but haven't set it up yet. Can't decide between the 418play ($560) or 918+ ($780)...

NAS arrived this morning. Had it up and running within 12 min. Now the long wait of formatting drives (I'm moving from a 4TB setup to a 28TB set up).

I got mine earlier this week but I've decided to keep the 918+. If anybody who missed this deal wants the 418play for the price I paid PM me. If I don't hear from anyone then I'll return it back to Dell.
