Now you have two thing that can go bad, I don't think it would be a good idea unless you setup redundant PS and UPS, at that point it would be too heavy to move around.

Once again Tom's showcases a lack of background and is reduced to using a Press Release. This is not the first NAS with a battery. In 2012 there was the Thecus NAS Tower N4800 Atom D2700 2GB DDR3 USB 3.0 4XSATA with a battery. And just like today's PR, the battery was just good enough to power system shut down. In 2012 the Thecus NAS Tower N4800 with 4 bays, no hard drives cost me US$650 from SimplyNAS.

It will allow it a proper shutdown by flushing caches to the drives rather than missing out on data sent to it - That said, pretty much all frigging nas'es are way overpriced and this one will unlikely be an exception...

DropBox, Amazon S3 and ElephantDrive? You mean all the clouds who suck and gouge us? How about Amazon Cloud, Hubic, or any of the other services that don't try to rip us off for a thousand dollars a year? Amazon Cloud? $60/yr. Hubic? $5/mo. Synology diskstations support these, have the best customer ratings on Amazon, can be automated, and have unlimited and high-capacity storage at fixed, low rates.

I've had a Thecus. I gifted it to someone I hate.

Did the article mean 30 minutes instead of 30 seconds? A 28.8Wh battery only being able to sustain 30 seconds of operation of a system containing up to 5 drives doesn't add up. They could have used a beefy capacitor instead.
