I have a Netgear SC101 with 2x 250gb Drives in it that i'm thinking of selling. If you're interested i'll post it in the classifieds section.

The ICYbox looks very interesting - only thing I couldn't work out is whether you can set it up to do http downloads as well as torrents. That would be a big requirement for me...

I use an HP Mediasmart Server at home, with Windows Home Server as the o/s. Works great as a NAS although it uses Windows Home Server File / Folder Duplication rather than traditional RAID. Works well however and has the advantage of having things like an itunes server / windows media server and connects flawlessly with Media Extenders.

I have it connected through a gigabit switch and get throughput of around 40mb/s.

Well as has been said before, don't waste your money on a cheap NAS when if you spend that little bit more, you won't need to return the cheap NAS and buy one that does what you want!

You can get them for around £250 second hand if you look about.

Yep - so you can set-up to download from sources like easynews where they provide http links as well as nntp access. Sorry - should probably have said web downloads to be clearer.

I know servers like the DNS-323 allow that capability so was interested if the Icy Box did too...

a recent firmware release allows user applications to be added so probably though the main forum is in German.

Answering my own question - it appears that the Icybox 4220B can run 3rd party apps which will allow the functionality I was talking about. Potentially you could install mldonkey which allows http d/ls or there is nzbget which can accept nzb downloads - either would achieve what I was looking for...
