Build Your Own 16tb NAS!!

From Engadget:
. . . Meet the Black Dwarf, a custom network-attached-storage device from the mind of video editor Will Urbina, packing 16TB of RAID 5 magnetic media and a 1.66GHz Atom N270 CPU into a completely hand-built Lexan, aluminum and steel enclosure. Urbina says the Dwarf writes at 88MB per second and reads at a fantastic 266MB per second, making the shuttlecraft-shaped 12.7TB array nearly as speedy as an SSD but with massive capacity and some redundancy to boot. . .

Here's the build videos. . . I totally want one. :)

IF anyone would like to donate a 16tb NAS to their Favorite Post-Tech, feel free to email me at SCREWFILMS[at]GMAIL.COM
