Most excellent smithers.... :)

Great review!

Looks like a pretty cool piece of kit, and it will only get more attractive as 1 terrabyte drives come down in price.

There have been a few "server in a box" solutions offered before, but this one looks like it actually delivers the goods. If the MySQL issues can be solved I'd imagine that a pair of these raided up for redundancy could be a kickass setup for folks running web based home business'.

I may have missed it during the read, but I was wondering if they list an upper limit to what size HD it can manage. 1T (hard to believe that's what we've got now... :) ) may be the upper limit of HD space now, but I suspect it won't be long before that's breached.

My only concern (as with all devices which can be accessed from the `net) would be security. Is there a firmware update function to address any issues that might come up?
