Ruud,
I have no experience with this but when I look to the spec is not a really powerful machine. (Intel Atom 230)
Consumption is also quite high.
Alternative
Shuttle Touch PC (powerful CPU + screen)

Or a laptop with Atom 270 + a NASbox
Combination will lower consumption and better performance

Enver,
It is also a home server (microsoft) stripped server 2003
It does not even have a monitor connection, so in the cabinet and out of site with it. A kind of super nas for home

Yep, just installed one for a friend of mine.

- One small box
- Great for the end user who wants a simple home server, not for the IT die hard
- Has 4 drive bays for sATA drives
- Depending on the model it comes with 2, or 4 drives already installed.
- The model I installed (2TB) came with 2x 1TB and leaves 2 bays open for further expansion. Beware ther is also a 4x500GB model.
- Runs on Windows Homeserver with PowerPack 2 and some add ins pre installed
- Headless operation, no video card, mouse or keyboard (that the idea behind HomeServer)
- Easy and simple install (can be compared to Small Business Server, also has a customized management ineterface)
- Supports shared folders, user management, automatic backup and restore, data duplication (folders content is automatically duplicated to protect against disk failure), web sites and remote access to local workstations from the internet.
- Quite
- Can be expanded with a variety of add-ins
- Performance is good enough, it is a data server not a application server

Review can be found here: http://www.wegotserved.com/2009/04/30/h ... me-server/
Add ins can be found here: http://www.whsplus.com/

Overall verdict: good quality for money, simple installation and operation, nice featureset
