@slaeyer – as a bonus, you’ll get a device that…

  • Uses very little power: Less than 2W (normally around 1W. -Since it’s on 24/7, this is significant for electricity bills.
  • Makes no noise (itøs fanless).
  • Can easily be run on ‘green power’ – eg. solar/wind power.
  • Can run on a cheap home-made UPS using two diodes and a battery.

Note: I’ll be running mine with a WD Red drive, which uses 0.2W idle power and 1.4W read/write power. The drive will not be powered by the EspressoBIN. So in theory, I shouldn’t need a 12V PSU.
