  1. Matthew,

    Thanks for the mention. I’m glad you found the purchasing guide useful. Stay tuned, I will continue this series with builiding your own WHS and eventually how to setup, manage, and extend the WHS. Again, thanks for the mention, great blog!

    Great overview.
    In my search for a WHS(2 years ago) my most important USP were:
    – Noice(fanless)
    – Idle power consumption
    I then found Tranquil and bought a T2 series.
    With 2 build in 1Tb disks and 2GB Ram it uses only 44Watts and is absolutely silent.
    The disadvantage is that it can only hold 2 build in disks.
    It does have an eSata port for expantion or backup.
    Expanding the internal Sata ports with a PCI adapter is useless, because the motherboard has only (slow)PCI slots and no PCIexpress.
