Has anyone got any zfs RAIDZ benchmarks to share?  I'm quite interested in 
getting one of these to replace my Dell PowerEdge SC440 (cost me 99GBP direct 
from Dell!) due to the reduced size/noise/power and extra drive bays, but I was 
concerned the slower CPU might affect performance.  It would mainly get used as 
an SMB file store and IMAP server.
