- This is currently AUD3100 shipped to Australia (USD2300 plus shipping). Save $800 !
- The 4TB Samsung 850 Evo 850 alone is $2000 at the moment
- You can add an external USB drive (SSD or HDD) via one of the very fast USB 3.0 ports for even more storage. Note, only one USB port can be used for external storage at a time, even though there are 4 USB 3.0 ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports.
- Fanless and headless operation - i.e. no keyboard or mouse or screen required for normal operation. They include video outputs on the back (VGA and HDMI) for troubleshooting only, not that I’ve ever needed to use them.
- No mechanical moving parts inside at all
- I’ve used it as a Roon Server but you can also use it as a DLNA server and other modes too.
- When using it with Roon, I turn it on from the power button and by the time I sit down and open the Roon Remote app, my library is fully loaded. To shut down, you just press the power button and it does a safe shutdown. Super easy to use.
- It has an internal 4TB SSD but like any computer the useable space is less - see below screenshot, usable space is 3.6TB
