    Wouldn’t it just make more sense to fix the WHS DE design flaw before selling it to the Japanese?

    Especially since it’s been proven that WHS DE has a design flaw that causes data corruption when using multiple hard drives! See Microsoft KB 946676 posting…

    Also the Hockey Puck models, whatever you want to call them, are a rather poor design for cooling without cooling vents where needed on top. Seagate is doing a way better job with it’s passive cooling design, as no noisy fan is needed, even for it’s 1TiB hard drive size in comparison.

    @Ryan, Doesn’t the use of multiple hard drives in WHS leads to data corruption as posted by Microsoft’s KB 946676? So, why then is Sony thinking to sell a proven data destroying design defect to it’s customers? The compact home server device comes with either 1TB (500GB × 2) of storage on the VGF-HS1S model or 1.5TB (750GB × 2) on the VGF-HS1 model.

    Man, I go away for 10 days and come back, and you guys STILL don’t have real jobs, choosing instead to troll forums thinking that posting the same reminder of the “flaw” over and over will somehow put Microsoft out of business.

    SIGH
