This is my first post on these forums, but I'm not really a stranger. I am the person who first hacked the MBWE back in March 2007 iirc. Unfortunately WD killed the forums, but here's some evidence. Me describing the internals.
Anyway, back to my question at hand
Did WD make any significant changes in the hardware of the white version? Specifically, the hardware issues I had with the original version
- Is there a backup battery to keep time?
- Does the fan control system have more than three speeds now. My version, the original had only three speeds, off, useless and loud.
- CPU and memory? Any improvements on speed etc… From what I knew, there was no way that processor could fill a Gigabit ethernet port.
- Anything else interesting?
I'm thinking of replace my drive, possibly with another linux based network drive. The hardware on WD left a lot to be desired. When I bought mine, they had just been released and so there was absolutely no info available. I learnt the expensive way.
Thanks for listening.
