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?

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.
