Pleasant surprised – Standalone BitTorrent BT Client + USB/NAS/FTP/SAMBA/Printer/UPNP Sharing Network LAN Server Reviews

posted by Jaker on 04/23/2010

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

Pros:
- Very good price/quality!
- Solid build quality
- Dispide of earlier reviews/posts mine does nog get hot, just normal warm.
- Has enough power on the USB-ports to power a 2,5" HD
- Once you upgrade the firmware to SnakeOS the possibilities expand a lot.
Cons:
- The troughput of the USB-devices is not very fast, but if you use EXT2 (Linux) as filesystem, then the speed is acceptable.
- A faster cpu with a little more memory would improve the overall speed a lot.
Other:
I have upgraded the device by using Snake-OS as firmware (It rocks!). I have not tried the printerserver yet, but now use it as BitTorrent Client and SAMBA-server. I am very happy with the "Transmitions" page of the SnakeOS. It gives me full possibilities to manage my BitTorrents I download at home form everywhere I have Internet acces.
Bottomline:
By this little device, upgrade it to the latest version of SnakeOS (now 1.1.0) and enjoy this little treasure.
