the v2 has the fan across the full width of the NAS
the v2 also has external power supply ( so less heat build up in the NAS itself )
the problem is nobody ever puts pics on ebay for the front and rear views of the v2
The V1 also has the external PSU.
I noticed the back of the unit has a groove where the power connector goes.
I am going to copy files back and forth from my laptop/nettop/server and see the speeds....this morning as breakfast i transferred 2,5 gb from nas to USB and it was going 6Mbs...hope is the USB limit...
Once i download a big file it will need to be moved to the NAS...if it takes so long each time is not gonna cut it!
