Hey Ron, yeah, the TS-109 Pro is a bit overkill for your outlined use I think. It is quite a beefy little data server to be honest.
My review copy will be staying with me for as long as I can for-see, I am actually in the process of transferring the data from my old NAS to the TS-109 Pro as we speak. I use a lot of remote file retrieval so it is perfect for that task as well as my full time music server for all users in my home. I have found iTunes to really 'play nice' with the TS-109 Pro on both Mac and Windows platforms.
I am still having some issues with MySQL though. If I could get MySQL to work consistently on this guy, then I could use it as a development server for PHP/MySQL work and completely rid my main workstation of that task. I am hoping it is something on my end or a future firmware update away from being resolved. PHP and the web serving function are flawless, I just can't get MySQL to play nice.
My System Specs
Intel i5 660 - Clarkbar Power
4 x 4GB GSkill & OCZ mixing and matching

Who cares about anything else, I have a 10GB RAM drive.
