Gawd, you're not kidding!

Gigabet ethernet, USB hubs and space for another drive.

What's the catch, I wonder? Surely that price can't be right?!?!?!?!

From the review...

The HP Media Vault comes in two varieties, the mv2010 and mv2020, with capacities of 300GB and 500GB and RRPs of 249 and 349 respectively. Both versions feature the same comprehensive list of features that includes space for an additional SATA hard drive, print server support, Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, SMB/FTP/http access, and RAID-1 and JBOD.

...looks like they've cocked up the price!

Nope, I stand corrected - that really is the price! Why so cheap, I wonder even more?

Yes, please do. I'm heading towards new computer territory coz my bays are full, but if this works well enough I might be tempted!

I have had several buying experiences with Morgan, and none has been happy. Buy them from Amazon, I say!

And presumably putting SqueezeCenter on this will be a challenge, to say the least? Anyone done it?

except you're not buying from amazon, it's a market seller.
