    cool product... but.

    Seems to be a good product, but it looks kinda old school in terms of enclosure/case designs... In my personal opinion it would kinda stick out when placed with other devices, and not in a good way.

    It would be cool to toy around with putting a PCI video card in that PCI slot, and see if you get any output. I would imagine it would be disabled in the bios to ignore anything like that, but it would be fun to try and toy with

    I would so convert this thing into a gaming machine
     
  3. Pricing seems a bit odd.

    I have a very similar thecus nas, the N0503 which has identical hardware, case and software to this one, the only difference being that it also supports 5x sata devices via an included drivebay insert if you use 2.5" HDDs instead of 3.5" ones.

    from the site i got mine from:
    N3200XXX = £299
    N0503 = £274

    The N0503 is cheaper despite having utterly identical hardware and additional drive support o.O

    On the thecus forums, people have done this. Swap the IDE DOM module for a HDD, add a PCI video card and you have a fully functional micro-sized server PC.
