I'm looking into getting one of the Bubba v1 boxes, but thinking of putting 2x compact flash cards inside (linked by a CF -> ATA converter.)
As far as I understand, most of the power consumption of the Bubba comes from the hard drive? If I were to use this compact flash solution, how much energy could I save by not having a hard drive?
: Should have looked more carefully. Found this: "Consumption without disk is only less than 1W measured at the 12V inlet, but probably 3-4W on the mains power adapter since it gets less efficient with less load.
" Pretty amazing!
