    It's not often that I'm glad to see 80mm fans, but on a NAS I'll have to be. :)

    Cooling would be a must when you have 4 drives together in an enclosure, 80mm fans are usually sufficient but depending on the make and the amound of work they have to do it can different outcomes.

    I wouldnt mind see-ing a NAS setup with Liquid-Cooling, just for a change! Cant imagine it will be much bigger, just have a radiator hanging off the back or even seperate.

    It sure looks nice. I guess the only thing it would make it better would be two more colour options for the box. One in Chrome and one in Orange.

    One more thing I would like to say. Is it just me or is the power on/off button the sexiest such button in recent years? I mean, look at it!

    It does look better then most NAS devices, but when it comes to it, it's not it's strongest point, and it shouldn't be. A NAS is something that you stick a few drives in, then you stick it somewhere out of sight, quickly configure it, and then "forget" about it.

    It delivers where it should, and for me that is network speed. The rest is just a bonus.
