    Would be nice to see a white version.
    Populated with 4 x SSD's would be very quite.

    Any reliable 2.5inch hard drives you'd take in one of these in preference to larger drives in a standard NAS?

    I've used the Western Digital RED WD10JFCX 1TB (100+ in service) and it's reliable, not individually that fast but then when you're bottlenecked by 1Gb ethernet it's not an issue for NAS use.

    Why only a max of 8TB? Wouldn't being able to increase to 12 or 16 be preferable? I'd much prefer being able to backup and increase to larger drive sets as the need arose. Or is that the current limit of 2.5" drives?
