These seem to be quite the rare commodity as of late. Any idea where to find one now?

I did find one on eBay, but it's open box and without a hard drive. Would you recommend getting it in that state?

Yes I would. That's how they are sold. Plug in a 2.5 "ssd, folow MouettEs how to and you are done.

The eBay USA reseller is Mr. Gates (UdfnYkyOj7F).
He posted the availability of those Last Excito B3 units back in 2017 !!

I purchased one (wireless) back in 2017 and a second one (w/o wireless) in 2020.
Today, both have a 3 TB Western Digital Red NAS (older design) drives.

The latest supported uboot.kwb file (selected MouettE version of Rodeus work).
http://install.excito.org/b3/uboot/beta ... rodeus.zip

This 2021 thread covers my update of the 2020 New Jersey B3 unit.
Gordon’s 2021 update : bubbagen image (version 1.14),
viewtopic.php?t=6499

Creating this USB (Gordon’s Gentoo OS with Excito B3 images) takes about 20-25 minutes.

Both units running 24/7 as file and archival servers.
