"I had the same problem, hard drive clicking...
It's the older 1 TB model and that's the third time it fails. The first time it refused to eject a CD, 2nd time it refused tu rip CDs and now this, whith the difference that the guarantee is over.
Now I got the message from my seller....it will cost 2'100.- euros to repair and updated it to the 2 TB version....this includes 300.- euros to recover the data and 600.- euros copyright tax for the hard diveÖ.
After reading the so many problems people have with this machine, it makes me feel that the US is just a cheap unreliable pc in disguiseÖ.
Good luck with yours...."
This was my post from 3 years ago in a now closed discussion. I paid to have the us repaired and updated, thinking that the problems of the original model would be gone.
Now it has started to blink and dosn't work anymore. Powering it off and on doesn't solve the problem, even left it off for one week. As I just hear a noise on start up and then nothing, I guess the hard drive is dead again. Just a couple of months after the warranty of this changed part is over !
So this time it will be goodbye uniti serve and no, I won't buy a uniti core. I'm probably going the innuos routeÖ
Sorry, I know I'm posting this by frustration.
