To be complete, perhaps should one mention that the Intel SS4000-E Nas
Server is available on ebay in the USA, new without disks, for 125 $.
The seller has 90 boxes available.

SS4000-E isn't the fastest one (XScale 400 Mhz - it's even a bit slow
localy in a LAN), and was an expensive bad joke with the original
firmware, but with Debian on it (Squeeze runs fine) it works very well
for things like remote backup through the net, were raw speed is not

The hardware quality is of a good level and, while there is perhaps
better choice, you can't go totaly wrong with this box at this price
for a four bay nas.
