It's very easy to install snakeOS (open source project for NAS units), it feels like an open platform.
The hardware is a litle bit to weak both CPU and Memory. A swap partition is a must! I use it as a torrent client and as a NAS for watching movies and music over samba. As a torrent client it works ok, you cant't download to many files at once. If you stream movies 1080p from it you cant run torrent on the same time.
If you want to stream a lots of movies and store big files the speed is a bit to low. Maybe 3-4 MB/s maximum over samba (windows share).
With some technical knowledge you can make this device quite useful. As a low-power 24/7 device for torrent seeding and as "Cloud device" for storing files it is greate.
