    I have a humble Netgear Stora NAS with 2x 2TB drives in RAID 1, Belkin UPS, a few gigabit Netgear switches, a couple of access points, and cat6 cabling installed to most rooms in the house back to a patch panel in the loft :P

    I have a 6 year old (at least) Dell Pentium D, a similar aged Dell D610 (both running XP Pro), a wireless router, a Virgin "Super" Hub, an old Intel print server box connected to an old HP 6122 inkjet...and...errr...that's it...

    I spend too much time at work every day with servers etc to want to have them at home as well

    ...oh and none of it runs 24/7...yes I am that tight fisted...

    ...but I am trying to find some cash to buy a small NAS box to store my photos...

    agreed. I get really bored of using computers by the time I get home every night! barely ever go on the laptop now.

    I've got a single box in my living room which is media server/player, and then 1 in each bedroom to watch the media on from downstairs. none of it is on permanently though, as i'm also a bit tight fisted with it! used to be though.

    You people put me to shame...one HP Proliant Microserver with 5GB ram & 2.25TB storage, running 2008R2 Standard. It's hooked up to my TV and surround sound system via HDMI, serving as an XBMC-powered media centre machine.

    Wow you must be really rich to have afforded the required RM licences for two CC3 and two CC4 servers!! Fair play that's serious dedication to learning@home!

    I'm with you there @CESIL - I used to think about running stuff at home but now I sit either upstairs in my study on my trusty 4Gb iMac 24" 2010 model. Or I sit downstairs using the school Samsung P510 laptop with Windows 7.

    If I'm reading I'll use my iPad.

    If I want films I'll watch Sky or if I want music I'll plug in my phone. Like you I don't run it 24/7 - but respect to those who do. With leccy prices going up my usage will go down hopefully.

    Any of you guys with massive servers at home got kids?

    Gareth
