Strolling the computer fair yesterday
  and John Kostakos of Vistra* told me about the QNAP TS-439 Pro.


It's yet another little 4 slot NAS box, BUT ...

It uses an Atom 1.6 Gig processor so it's as low power as it can be.
This model has hot swappable slots for 4 full sized SATA disks.

The atom processor still gives you enough compute power to run
  routing, firewall, DNS, web cache (squid), media centre, web server,  

Looks well built, has a bit of a Linux community around it.
I'm not sure what distro the supplied software is based on
  (source available) but people are have installed Debian on it.

Sounds like something I've been looking for for a while.

Anyone had any experience with these or interested?
