- Sep 29, 2004Michael,
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
guess it's more like 90% less power costing me only about $1.25/month to
(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. ;-)
