This is basically a Pogoplug / Dockstar / GoFlex Net and can be used as a low cost download box, NAS, media server, etc etc. It has one SATA port which can be used to connect a 3.5" or 2.5" bare drive or a GoFlex Desktop drive. You can also connect it to a multi-bay eSata enclosure too, it supports the Port Multiplier function.

Average power consumption with a 2.5" USB drive is about 5-8 w only. You can also attach a USB Hub to increase the number of USB ports.


Architecture : ARMv5te
Processor : Marvell Kirkwood 1.2GHz
RAM : 128MB
NAND : 256MB
USB : 1
SATA : 1
Ethernet : Gigabit
Transmission torrent client can be installed along with the default firmware. No pendrive is required in this case.

OR

The initial configuration of the device will be performed, ie installing latest uBoot, Rescue System, Netconsole for recovery etc. The buyer only needs to download the rootfs (link will be provided), extract the files to a pendrive and the device will be ready to use. Basic apps like Transmission, Samba etc will be pre installed.

Basically the following steps will be performed

1. Activate the device
2. Install latest uBoot with support for newer kernels
3. Install Rescue System
4. Configure Netconsole for recovery
5. A rootfs with basic apps pre loaded can be downloaded and copied to a pendrive.

If you need the device without any modification, I can provide that too.

Yep, and much better than leaving your PC switched on 24/7, will save on electricity bill as well!

Its not available separately in India, so there is no original price. I got it from the US.

There are two options, if you want to keep the factory settings it will support "NTFS, FAT32 or HFS+", you will have DLNA, and local NAS capabilities, also have a torrent client, Transmission, but the flexibility is limited.

2nd option is to install a full blown linux OS in a USB pendrive or hard disk or a SATA disk., in this case you have more flexibility and basically install anything. In this case even more file systems are supported, ext3, fat 32, xfs, ntfs etc. This hard disk / pendrive should be connected always for the device to work.

You can monitor the downloads through the Transmission Web Interface. There are tools like vnstat which will show bandwidth consumption. Basically its like a mini computer and can do pretty much anything using it.

With the factory settings can we download torrents using Transmission?

On the back, there is one USB port, one ethernet port, one power jack, and one power button. On top you have the SATA connector. In the front, two LEDs.

1. Factory configuration, the OS is installed in the inbuilt 128 MB NAND. This is replaced by a rescue system which is installed in the NAND. The debian OS lies in the USB drive.
2. You have to use a USB Hub
3. Yes, you can use a GoFlex Desktop drive, or even a bare 3.5" drive.
4. Yes you can.

I will be doing all the steps, you just need to download and extract the rootfs to a pendrive and it will be ready.

Yes, it is possible. It is disabled by default, but can be enabled. Although it doesn't seem to be present in the latest firmware,(I haven't tried it) but can be easily installed again.
