In Italy the Zotac ZBOX RI323 goes for almost 234 Euro (which is almost the price of the 4 Bay Qnap) and you still need to put some ram on the thing.
Well I suppose I should be comparing to the intel based Qnap TS-451 which is 500 Euro not the ARM based one that is 250 Euro.
Over here salaries are among the worse in Europe so the price thing is a big deal for me
On the power side the 2961Y celeron has a designed scenario power of 6W (I'll amuse that means running OS an not much more) which is acceptable but not as low as ARM devices. It would still be interesting to see how much power the thing actually drains from the mains ... if Zotac ships me a unit to review I could do that sort of thing
I'm not looking for more power but particularly concerned on the electricity bill.
The interesting thing is that the Zotac ZBOX RI323 claims onboard hardware RAID (or at least the description lets you think that).

Are you sure on that ? because quoting from the description
of the RI323
With the usual array of connectivity options including dual gigabit LAN
it sounds like it has 2 Ethernet GB ports and that is backed up in the tech specs too.
