    Thecus W2000 Windows Storage Server

    Strange, the 4000 has a better ( not by much ) cpu. The 2000 and the 5000 both have the the same cpu.

    The dreaded 26 drive letter limit in Windows.

    How do you get the " SSD Optimizer " for tiering ? I don't see a refernce for it on the SnapRAID page or forum.

    Keep WHS2011 vs moving on

    As the folks at HSS say, Ess is just not that consumer friendly compared to 2011. Have you thought of using 2011 with a third party backup/restore ( like Macrium ) ? May be easier/cheaper way to go, less admin overhead.

    Keep WHS2011 vs moving on

    Go to HomeServerShow and ask Andrew and Drashna , as this may be as simple ( Hah ) as Ess using legacy mode when installing as opposed to UEFI.

    Keep WHS2011 vs moving on

    Yes, backup/recovery is stable in Ess.

    File types for streaming from WHS2011

    WHS 2011 has very limited streaming file type support, I would suggest you look at Plex or XBMC to increase it's repertoire. MB3 is another choice.

    Recommend me an OS

    There does seem to be a way to use WD drives with 4K and WHS2. I would read the whole link if you want to go this way. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/889b01be-d333-4fc7-b005-e12b7b236ad7/problem-with-windows-server-backup-2008-r2-with-advanced-format-4k-drive

    3 or 4tb Hard Drive WHSV1

    There is a way to do this, but the drive will have to be GPT not MBR - http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5136-can-i-use-a-4tb-usb-drive-for-backups/

    ARM based DIY NAS solution

    Another answer, not much different than the above, No, Yes, soon. None yet, the 64 bit server ARM's are only available through Caldexa, and are definitely not cheap. Late this year/early next year you will begin to see cheap 64 bit ARM processors aimed at low cost roles like a DIY NAS. No idea...
