    Is anyone running LMS (via VortexBox) on this device?

    What are your experiences? Looks a good spec for a decent price.

    One thing I will say is that their pre-sales support is fantastic.

    I'll let you know what their post-sales support is like when I buy one (though hopefully the device will just work problem-free for years).

    be sure and report on how this works out. Looks like it should run VB just fine.

    So far it's working really well. A bit bigger than I first imagined but it just sits on my shelf quietly serving my music - I've connected it up via power-plugs since it has to be sited away from my router. I went for a white case.

    ú299 for a 2TB VortexBox is pretty good I think. Add a ú69 2TB Western Digital Elements USB backup drive to that to ensure my music is safe, and it's a perfect solution for my needs.
