A tour of the 5Big

On the outside, the 5Big is quite impressive to me, compared to my skinny ED Mini V2. If features:

  • Five slots for hot-pluggable 3.5" SATA disks
  • Three e-SATA connectors
  • One USB host connector
  • One RJ45 socket

Internally, the 5Big has 128MB SDRAM and 4MB (yes, that's 32Mbit) FLASH -- that's big enough to get a kernel and minimal rescue rootfs.
