Bubba|Two questions: Fire away

My Bubba|Two unit has arrived this morning.

If anyone has any questions or tests they'd like me to perform, please let me know.

I haven't had a massive amount of time to test it yet, but given the limited tests I have performed, I'm very impressed.

So far:

Throughput is twice as fast as Bubba (I've tested SMB transfers and FTP)
The web interface is much snappier, and prettier (imo)
It seems to run cooler than the original version
Mounting additional USB drives works brilliantly

I've been asked to test WordPress and Joomla, so I'll be giving that a go soon. I'm going to Subversion too.

I'm also going to try eSata drives, and any other tests I can think of!

Here are some hastily snapped pictures. I'll do some better ones later on.

I got mine today.

I must say that it looks much nicer in real life than in the pics, I really like that velvety black matte finnish.
The web interface looks good too.
It is still sitting at work though, so I haven't been able to test much more than the web interface and the kensington lock slot...
