UPDATE 01/09/2023: We have our random winner! Congrats to Bojan, on winning the 1TB BeeDrive! I am waiting for his reply in the next 48 hours for the confirmation.

It's that time of year again, and that means Blackvoid will be doing another giveaway!

So welcome to the "Back to Synology 2023 Giveaway"!

This year we are fortunate enough to be sponsored by Tecom Trade d.o.o. (Croatia), Synology's official distributor for Croatia. Big thanks for providing this excellent new device that will for sure come in handy no matter who wins it.

After a very generous giveaway for Blackvoid's 4th anniversary back in March, this time around we are going for a more "all around" device that is new to Synology's lineup and a real gem in terms of its features.

DISCLAIMER: In full disclosure, this is a giveaway, not a lottery, so no fee or charge is needed to participate. This is a worldwide giveaway.

This year's back-to-school giveaway prize will be a brand new 1TB Synology BeeDrive!

In case anyone is not familiar with this device, be sure to check out the full review.
