Many of the NAS boxes in the market use external power supplies.  It removes heat from the box and allows them to make the box smaller.

 

Don't see any pricing on either the WHS2011 or Linux versions.

It is interesting that Gigabyte is bundling the OS. It would be nice to see a Storage Server 2012 version or a Windows Server 2012 Foundations version.

It would also be nice to have more than 4 GB of RAM. That seems pretty limited. Wonder what the pricing will be?

I doubt their target market would support much more than WHS 2011.  This looks interesting but also looks, "done before."  I'll contact them about it.

"done before" -- yep, that about covers it. At one time we would all be applauding the fact that another manufacturer is entering the WHS market, but it has the feel of  "too little, too late".

Anything over $250 is way overpriced

 

for sure. If it comes in under $200 it might actually be compelling.

How can you judge the price when you don't know what is in it?

WHS 2011 is $50 by its self.

 

Any product that helps build momentum behind the concept of home servers is a good thing for our community.
