This is the Perfect Widows Home Server 2011 or Windows Server 2012 Essentials box! (just updated to 2012)
I attached 2 USB 3.0 ProBox SATA drive enclosures http://www.amazon.com/Mediasonic-HF2-SU3S2-ProBox-Drive-Enclosure/dp/B003X26VV4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359879117&sr=8-1&keywords=probox+usb+3.0
Add StableBit DrivePool
Whamo, love it. Rock solid and plenty of speed to serve out media files over my gigabit network.
The new ID83 for 2013 looks just as good but it's not out yet. EDIT: (it's out! check zotac's website)
P.S. this box is NOT powerful enough for a Windows 7/8 media center. The Intel HD 3000 is a touch too slow I think. The Intel HD 4000 on the new ID84 will be perfect since that what my MacMini uses for my other Windows 8 HTPC
The Zotac ID-82 is an Intel powered machine that's well built, quiet, quick, and unobtrusive. Sounds great, but if you buy one of these be prepared for frustration in getting your software loaded, and don't count on much help from Zotac. I would rate their customer support as -2! I could not get this device to recognize my USB CD/DVD drive; so I wasn't installing Windows 7 from the CD. Okay... what next... I know: copy the install files to a bootable thumb drive! This is only method I could make work. I highly recommend you do a search for how to prepare a boot thumb drive and copy the Windows installation CD over. Armed with USB installation thumb drive you are prepared for battle with you new Zotac... and I mean battle. It comes with USB 3.0 ports, which of course don't work until you load the drivers... in Windows! But... no worries - the machine has three active USB 2.0 ports. Great, but the BIOS makes it very tough to select them for boot! You would think that entering BIOS via the "Delete" key at start-up would allow you to locate the USB port as a boot option; but IF it shows up in BIOS, selecting the appropriate order and saving prior to exiting BIOS accomplishes exactly nothing. I finally got the machine to read the thumb drive by restarting and tapping F8 - this brings up an optional boot sequence window. From there you can select the installation thumb drive and finally install windows. If it won't see the thumb drive move it to a different port until it shows up. Altogether an unnecessary waste of time caused by crummy support, a useless manual, and a poorly implemented BIOS setup. The only bright spot are the helpful advice postings you can find online. Now... let's see if redemption awaits with the software loaded!
