    Good point and I know this comes from your own experience!

    Remember that one of the things that got me going on the HST controllers is a licenced Windows XP Pro Embedded.

    A very tough and lean OS.

    This trimmed back OS make these machines perform like bigger and more power hungry units.

    Well... if reliability and efficiency are the things most important to you, then you should have second thoughts again and reconsider the HomeTroller. However, if most computing power for the money is your goal, then sure... this PC or any of a hundred more like it will probably do the trick! It all depends on your priorities.

    . Anyone see any down side? Thoughts please?

    Price is genuine... but they are all sold out!

    Dell do regular server deals for about the same money....

    I would probably still build a more select "server" using low energy bits and get 3-4 1TB drives in there...

    There have been quite some changes in PC PSUs in receint times.... some are hideously inefficient unless running 85%+ loads....

    The Price Malcolm.

    That would make me suppicious for being sold in the UK, and not on ebay.

    You won't get 10 Watts power consumption with that!

    All my HS PCs have ever done is run HS so to some extent buying a PC box with all its fancy graphics and huge hard disks is a waste of money - and then you never get enough serial or USB ports!

    Thoughts anyone?

    Jon00 did and he stated recently he simply reworked the plugin for the power change.
