And unfortunately slow. The Pogoplug comes in as one of the slowest NAS devices, and requires special drivers to work.

Someone benchmarked one connected to a RAID0 array, and it managed a massive 10Mbyte/sec read speeds. The Seagate Dockstar (which is apparently the same hardware) manages about 20Mbyte/sec, and doesn't need any special drivers.
