Hot swappable 1TB RAID drives for consumer use at about..I think it was $350 after rebates? What a deal.
It's quiet on the consumer model. I guarantee you that the 3200 makes no attempts to be quiet. But ya, I agree with you that the consumer features are probably nice for someone like you. I wouldn't want any of that though. I'm about to stick a new hard drive into my machine and reboot and do a linux install on it. I'm pretty sure at this point that my problem is that either VMWare of window 7 is stripping my 802.1q tags and that is why traffic isn't making it back into the virtualized router from the far end switch. I've verified that I can do it under linux so it'll be a half-measure test that I can do without doing a full-blown ESX server installation. If all goes well I'll be specing a couple new servers later today... One for ESX server and one for iSCSI. (after I get some sleep) I'm giddy.
It's still annoying cause i'll have to wait a week before I can get back to studying properly.
