Just seen a review for this.

May prove useful to those who like to monitor things ?

Ordered one last week with a view to replacing an ageing epia 1000/homebrew Linux flash build; will happily report back once I've had a play.

As no-one has actually said it so far: It's a 'Dreamplug'. Marvell-based device - essentially same insides as a sheevaplug/tonidoplug/guruplug. Some are more hackable than others, but all are generally idea as home servers.

There are lots of these things now.  Look at an OpenRd or openRD ultimate if you want something a bit fancier with real sata discs, for example.
