Very nice! I really want a NAS lol

I wish this supported RAID6 tho. While RAID 5 is nice... if you have 2 drives fail at once.... you're SOL.

I like it, but can't afford it just yet though,....

Yea, I need to win the lottery or something so I can buy a house and then wire it up and run a kickass media server. Maybe even do some virtualization and have a couple internet terminals around the house lol
