Has anybody tried the ZFS based NAS offered by OWC?

Looks like a more potent alternative to Qnap.

I have seen this on the web, but I have not tried it.
Yes, it looks like it may be the "best of breed" - compared to
QNAP, Synology, Thecus (and dare I say Drobo, which is obviously not as good as any of these other ones) - but yes, it looks very nice, and I would love to try one.

For a little more I'd probably prefer Small-Tree Titanium Z-5 15TB. It's only 5 disks so probably a little less performance. Could also go for their Z-8 which is a bit more money...

I'd prefer Small-Tree only because their support is top notch and so is the product.

I'm sure the OWC one is nice too, and would work great, I just prefer to use a company I have already had good experiences with.

Also it appears OWC's warranty is not the same thing as "support" - they will repair or replace defects, but will not help you troubleshoot or any promise of SLA. It's just a warranty on parts.
