Cheers for the review though, I had been eyeing these up but they are still too expensive imo. Good if you don't want to mess around with building a dedicated box and lower power for sure.

The print server functionality on my NAS box has just stopped working, i have reflashed the firmware and tried various things but it still wont work. An IcyBox RAID backplane at work also stopped working and there is no technical support at all from IcyBox. The only way to contact them is via a web form which you never get a response from.

Since the NSLU2 is almost impossible to get hold of, I'd be interested in knowing if there is any similar custom firmware available for the Icy Box. There seems to be quite a community at http://nas-4220.org/, but I think this is all based on the standard firmware...
I've also just read there that this system isn't so great with Samsung hard drives at the moment...
