24368Re: NSLU2 vs WDTV Live
- Mar 24, 2010Hi,
Another very good replacement for the NSLU2 is the SheevaPlug.
It's en excellent little box running a 1.2 Ghz arm processor, 512 MB SDRAM, 512 MB Flash and the ability to plug an SD-card to run the OS from instead for internal flash.
I use this little box to host my SqueezeboxServer (currently hosting some 1200 albums) and it can easily be used as a webserver, fileserver, torrenthost etc.
Specs (from wiki):
Type Plug computer
Release date March 2009 (2009-03)
Operating system Debian (since rev. 1.2), Ubuntu
Power 2.3w idle no attached devices, 7.0w running at 100% CPU utilization
CPU 1.2 GHz ARM Marvell Kirkwood 88F6281
Storage capacity External hard drive/SDIO card/flash disk
Memory 512MB SDRAM, 512MB Flash
Connectivity USB 2.0, SD, Gigabit Network, JTAG mini USB
Dimensions 110 x 69.5 x 48.5 (mm)
