Works pretty well after some upgrade – Standalone BitTorrent BT Client + USB/NAS/FTP/SAMBA/Printer/UPNP Sharing Network LAN Server Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Has everything thats announced; - Small sized; - Consumes low to nothing; - Cheap for what its capable of.
Cons:
- Comes with crappy firmware; - Does not have any type of cooling hardware (not even heatspreaders!); - If overheated the system halts.
Other:
I did some firmware upgrade trading it for snakeOS and now it works much better resolving the first issue. Bought some small heatspreders, opened case, glued them to processors and thats all to resolve the second and third issues leaving no more cons.
Bottomline:
You could with some money and time to spend assemble a linux on a very small and nimble machine achieving equals to better results. But this one has it all for a much smaller price. Very deserving of your money.
