After finishing the article, it gave the unit an 8 (on a scale of 1 to 10). What's interesting is that the example diagrams for the interface s/w was all Windows-based (no native Mac that I saw and I am a Mac user), but there was a web-based interface as well.

As the article also said, it has me wondering about "rolling my own" with some of the old Linux hardware laying around unused since my Mac arrived. I could easily get a GigE card for it and buy large capacity drives for it and try that out... they say you can't get all the bells and whistles with a home-grown system - I'm just after raw storage and not really interested in RAID capabilities.
