Passionis, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great as a Media and Storage server running UMS.
Bad points:
1.5GHz processor is not fast enough to transcode 1080p on the fly without buffering, but that's to be expected.

Mark,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great low power server for small scale stuff. I'm using them as VMWare ESXi test servers in a home lab. I know they aren't that powerful, so I ain't going to tax them too much.
Bad points:
In terms of the hw itself, maybe a slightly fast CPU (but we have that now in the N54L)
