  1. But does it support ZFS? Looks like it uses Btrfs instead…

    I’m tempted to downsize, but I’m not giving up ZFS.

  2. You say “We did not get to test the unit with NVMe caching which may have helped the unit’s perf”…
    Why ???

    First you say this is a must have feature. Later you list the NVMe drive in the test configuration.
    Then you don’t use it?
    What’s the point of these tests then?

  3. I haven’t seen anything about power consumption which is, in my opinion, a key parameter for consumers.
    Could you elaborate this point please ?
