Unibrain FireNAS Portable 480GB Server Review
"A good mate of mine was more interested in it after I showed him the specifications, as he is someone in the networking industry, and really appreciates hardware like the FireNAS. We don't look at it as a small box with almost Â½ a Terabyte of hard drive space, but more of a giant leap in networking storage. You look past the 480GB of free space in My Computer and the small box and realize what you have is a remarkable piece of hardware that most people aren't going to have the opportunity to even observe, let alone experience. The FireNAS is not designed for the home user, or a small home business that may have one or two staff members, but rather a medium to large sized business with up to 50+ employees, depending on how IT orientated your business is."
Epox's KT333CE chipset board- the 8K5A2+
"Epox's 8K5A2+ features VIA's new Southbridge- the VT8235 which brings USB 2.0 right onto the chipset. There are four USB ports on the back panel with an onboard header for additional two. The back panel also houses an RJ45 port powered by the VIA VT6103 chip for networking. Audio is powered by the Realtek's 650 chip that adheres to the AC'97 2.2 codec specifications and supports six channel audio, however, if you want to use six speakers, you'll have to sacrifice the line-in and microphone ports.
