Default Acer Aspire EasyStore H340

Acer Aspire EasyStore H340 Windows Home Server w/ Atom 230, 2GB, 1TB, Gigabit Lan, eSATA, USB 2.0 at Memory Express Computers

Anyone had a chance to play with one of these yet? It has some intresting features and as a storage option seems reasonably cheap / lower power. I don't need a massive storage solution but then I don't need to waste money on junk either. Honestly I'm surprised an atom could run a file server.

I've got one installed and its a pretty good, I've put 3 more 1TB WD Green hard drives in it so its got a total of 4TB hard drive space.

It's great for network storage, and it works as a media center as well so you can dump all your music/photos/movies onto it and play them over the network on any PC or PS3/Xbox 360.

It also does automatic backups of any PC on your network.

I'm happy with mine.

PS3? The PS3 has been notoriously picky with how you share files, can someone confirm this works with streaming videos over ps3?

I have an original Launch PS3 (60gb) and the Media Center Plugin that came pre-installed on the Acer Home server stream's .avi's (divx/xvid) no problem to my PS3, it also loads .jpeg photos and .mp3 audio files no problem on my PS3 through the Home Server.
