I'm interested in this because it's got a direct USB connection. I suspect it will have better software and performance monitoring capabilities than the Lacie 2Big desktop USB RAID box, and as I'd be using it for photos the USB connection is really essential. Network connection would be secondary (for backup).

Anyone got one and can share experience?

Cant fault it.
