"From the man that brought you the OS Xbox Pro and the Cinematograph HD comes... a cockpit canopy filled with hard drives? Not quite. Meet the Black Dwarf, a custom network-attached-storage device from the mind of video editor Will Urbina, packing 16TB of RAID 5 magnetic media and a 1.66GHz Atom N270 CPU into a completely hand-built Lexan, aluminum and steel enclosure."
Need a weekend project? Try building your own NAS. From Scratch. Including the case. The Black Dwarf looks pretty impressive, especially for a homemade project and it is built to perform too! Topping out at 16TB of storage (it looks like the builder settled for some rendundancy) it also holds more internal capacity than any other NAS you will find out there. All that storage should should last a while, but I know that if I were to have such a beauty, I would become really careless about what I saved and fill it up within months.
