    reviews at newegg arn't so hot, but I have a hard time trusting them.

    I don't much care for ADS, but this is just sooo cool.

    That is indeed very cool. Of course, you could always build your own using FreeNAS and a MicroATX board, but not for $101 :coold:

    yes, but it will cost more, take up more room, maybe be louder, use more power, and be more difficult to setup.

    But...but...it doesn't have RAID! It can't be any good! :noes:

    It's a nice package for what it is though.

    EDIT: Nice to see you giddy about something for once, Jolly.

    Too bad it's not SATA and can't do over 250GB (as the review says, at least). I have a 400GB SATA drive just sitting here on my desk.

    it's not SATA, but that's not too big a deal for me. It does go over 250GB, however. That reviewer is an idiot.

    That's pretty cool. Do you know of any other companies that make such a product?

    I joked about how it couldn't be any good if it doesn't have RAID, but I do have to wonder: how would you protect the data on the drive from the wear and tear of running 24/7?

    same way most smart consumers protect their HDDs : Use good drives only, and spin them down/park the head when not used.

    How would you control the idle timeout on this box? Does it allow that level of configuration?

    it's a watered down linux box. I'd be surprised if it didn't, and even then I could add it.

    I think it's pretty lame. First of all, it's IOGear. They make some crappy products. Secondly, It's over-priced. So it's a 200GB drive with a bad warranty (1 year) and a soho gateway in one box. Better off getting a normal router and just plugging in an entry-level NAS unit next to it.

    I was bothered by the name too, but the idea of a router + NAS + VPN seemed pretty tasty. I kinda wish it didn't come with a drive, so I could justify the cost of buying a Seagate and plugging that in. Oh well; not like I actually need any of these things right now, anyway.
