Low power- Good for 24/7 usage! – 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:
It's very easy to install snakeOS (open source project for NAS units), it feels like an open platform.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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).
Bottomline:
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.
