Most people on the list have tweaked theirs, either by flashing
another BIOS which allows generic uses for "ODD" SATA port, or
adding an LSI controller with internal and/or external ports
and IT firmware, often not using mobo ports at all. Some tweaks
replace the CD bay with a 4x2.5" or even a 6*2.5"(7.5mm) tray
and use the smaller disks for rpools and caches.

It also has ECC RAM which is a very good thing (esp. with ZFS),
though seems limited to its 8Gb.

I hope other list members who have actual practice with these
can elaborate more; I don't think HDD size is really limited
(especially if you use another HBA).
