Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand (82 x 40 x 135 mm) and quiet enough to keep in your lounge, the LinkStation Mini SSD is both fan-less and motor-less and hence has very low power consumption. With no internal moving parts, it will also be more reliable and quieter than other NAS devices.
