Released May, 2008
The Pros:Runs quietly, generally can't hear it at all. Stays cool, no need for extra ventilation or cooling apparatus. Spins down the HD when idle, saves energy.
The Cons:Formatting large drives results in a hang-up at around 94% - this eventually clears itself but seems like an error at first. Permissions setup is awkward and lacks features. User access permissions are cleared on reboot - very insecure.
