At the same time i can watch media files on 2 other TV's through media players.

Its also contains a back-up drive for 3 PC's in this home and we share 1 big network drive from this PC on the 3 other PC's

Its super cheap and does almost everything (you can game on it, not even with a discrete card)

The E-350 is old so i would go for a E-2200 now:

It would cost me about 100 Euro (ASUS E2KM1I-Deluxe = 135Euro + 8Gb RAM 60 Euro + Case 100 Euro) more. But then I wouldnt have to worry about when I wan to do additional stuff. On the other hand I dont have 3 TVs and not more than 2 PCs that will access the NAS. I guess I have to make up my mind.
Thanks for the input.
