Are these the cheapest things folk are buying?
Servers of many sizes run for years. For example I have a Netbook as a NAS/Server and it's run for a very long time. It draws under 10 Watts so no impact on the planet.
I'm looking for a network storage device for home use and looking at just about everything out there (WD, Seagate, Buffalo, etc.). Reading the Cnet and Amazon reviews, there seems to be a high incidence of failure and luke-warm performance.
These devices have been available for a few years now... why are they still so unreliable?
