Summary: I have been thinking to build a small server to replace an old Synology DS107 for our small office. It is not mainly for HTPC, but a server that we can use as RAID-protected file, VPN, streaming, web, and a testing VM (Sun VirtualBox) Server. I really think most NASs nowadays are over-priced. Not only that, we lost the control to compile and run apps (eg. Apache & MySQL) from source codes.
Summary: I planned to build a computer under the following conditions: (1) mini-ITX or smaller form factor, (2) Intel Core 2 duo or faster CPU, (3) legacy free IO (at least no VGA, no PS2, no FDD, no IDE, no parallel printer port), and this product was among the few that satisfied all these criteria. Upon using it, I found that there are so many defects, and most of them are already widely known as you can search on the internet.
