I spent £25 on a single 4GB ECC module and haven't quite filled the 250GB drive it came with yet, it saturates my gigabit network with FreeNAS 7 installed running off a memory stick. Awesome build quality, low power consumption and the processor is a good deal faster than those in NAS drives costing far more.
Plus you can turn it into an HTPC with the 4x PCI-E slot or add a hardware raid card, absolutely stunning deal.
