Little surprising device – Standalone BitTorrent BT Client + USB/NAS/FTP/SAMBA/Printer/UPNP Sharing Network LAN Server Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Very Small device - Has no fans nor an internal HDD so it's completly silent - Interesting set of features - Can be firmware upgraded (I recommend) - Appears to have a very good build quality
Cons:
- Processor is not the fastest out there - Rather slow with NTFS drives
Other:
Pretty good small device, reads eveything you plug in the USB ports, has an ftp, samba, UPnP and torrent (all tested and working) and a print server (didn't test it as I no longer have a printer at home). What's between it and perfection is the 250MHz processor wich tends to make transfers a bit slow: I have a 1TB NTFS hard-drive and it was writing at 500KB/s which is slow. Tested with another one EXT3 formatted and the results although not brilliant, did improve a lot. Not that the original firmware is bad but you I recommend upgrading it's firmware (read the forum), you get a nicer interface, a webserver and a much better torrent client (You can manage your torrents remotly).This comes with a cost, you loose the UPnP server (irrelevant to me)
Bottomline:
Good device to use as a torrent client and as a server to distribute your digital contents to all the computers in your house
