Start a forum, don't post a "review"...
Pros: This device offers a simple solution for a home network that needs a multiple PC backup system and also has the benefit of sharing media within the LAN or remotely.
Cons: Some may consider the price to be high for the media sharing ability. *sigh* And instead of posting in the forums, they decide to post here and sound like disgruntled employees from Cisco.
Other Thoughts: Yes. You can make a media server for roughly the same cost. But the case, HDD, RAM, CPU/Motherboard costs are only part of it. You'd need an O/S, monitor, keyboard, mouse, power supply, (possible) 3rd party coolers (to reduce noise), cables... which I can't believe these "forum criers" are leaving out in their Swiss-cheese debate. On top of that, you'd need to update the OS with patches (semi-weekly), update the anti-virus or whatever programs you have installed just to reduce the security risk.

Why do they insist on charging so much for plastic around a hard drive?
Pros: Can impress you other completely tech naive friends with how much money you spent on a hard drive enclosure with incredibly limited software!!
Cons: As others have said on other models of this device:
Other Thoughts: Don't own one, wouldn't buy one. Played with one in a store and did some reasearch. If you want a really limited media center where your previous ripped/downloaded media is unlikely to play, this series is the one for you!
