FWIW, I get plenty of use out of mine and didn't modify it at all. I'd definitely recommend checking out the other threads and pick one up to tinker with if you have a few bucks burning a hole in your pocket.

Bad reviews are from carry over from when this was half way to the price range of a full fledge NAS box.

This has some limits over a NAS box, but its now only $17.

It's not the E02 model so the ram is halved.

Got this on a BF sale and it was well worth it. You can install Arch Linux or Debian and use it as a mini-server.

I bought mine during the $18.50 deal...the one where if you ordered the P21, they sent you the E02. I got the E02, and haven't even bothered modding it yet.

I used the software included to create one (free) master account and to map my 3 TB external drive as a P: drive on my work laptop, my home laptop, and my Home Theater PC. I also connect to it through android on my and my wife's phone. There's a small lag when connecting sometimes (probably due to the power saving settings on my external drive), but other than that, it works fine. I'm able to pull up my photos, HD home videos, and some cartoon shorts I ripped from a DVD for my son from just about anywhere.

There's a bit of lag if I'm watching a video from an external network, but I'm mostly using it to stream in my house and to host my backup drive. Works great for that

Mine is great. You control your storage. I mainly use mine to have access to ALL my music.

These are roughly comparable devices wrt computing power / memory. The Pi has more kinds of I/O while the Pogo has 4 USB ports and its own power supply for itself and the USB ports. If you're looking to make a small NAS, hacking one of the Pogo's is the way to go imho. But it won't do much more than disk server related activities. I'm not sure, though, if these have internal timers. Which could give this an edge in some ways over the Pi.

sorry, but i don't don't understand the point of this when I already have a main computer that has a HDD which all of my devices can connect to and share files. What benefit would I have using this for that purpose? If there is a benefit over my normal setup, $17 is worth it.
