      Michael,

      You are correct it seems the Linkstation datasheet says 17W max. I thought
      it was 17 watts when idle and something like 37 watt when being accessed. So
      I
      guess it's more like 90% less power costing me only about $1.25/month to
      run.
      (17 * 24 * 30 / 1000 = 12.25 KWH/Month or @ $0.10/KWH $1.23 month.

      Of course these saving assume that I shut down my old server. ;-)
