Excerpt: I bought this as a home server for 150 euro online. It's made by Netgear who are a well known reliable brand. It's ideal for a home network and also as a back up. If consists of a sleek glossy black box that has a USB port on front and at the rear it has a power button and an Ethernet cable slot. The power lead is long and I am able to plug this in under neath the desk and shove it out off the way in the corner.
