1.  Hard drive not included.
2.  FAN only. Measured at 2300~6200RPM, varied among models. More details about dB(A) value, check
http://www.quietnoise.com/facts.htm
5.  User can click and download the file, but not play it in Photo Station as compressed Flash video.
6.  The music can be streamed, but the metadata (ex: title, album) may not be indexed on the iTunes.
7.  For Mac users, DS210+ supports PostScript USB printers only.
8.  Primary partion only.

The sheer amount of information presented here requires a second read. Go ahead I’ll wait. I am dumbfounded by the amount of functionality they have packed into a device that only uses thirty watts of power. This Single device will act as a print server, a network video recorder, a Secure FTP, a web server, a streaming media server, and that’s just scratching the surface.
