Today Woot is selling the Seagate FreeAgent DockStar Network Adapter for $20 + 5 shipping, which is just a very fancy wrapper around the PogoPlug which is still $129.

I have the development version of Plug which I've been running uninterrupted since I got it. It's a beast. (You also get an SD slot and JTAG connector, which this doesn't have).

It's not a RAID solution, but if anyone is looking for a very low power Torrent/NZB NAS box, this is it. Includes a Seagate dock + 3 powered USB connections.

Instructions for installing Gentoo, I run Debian on mine.

Or you can just use it as a NAS device with no hacking.
