I have a dlink dns-323 (2 SATA bays). Runs linux by default, and has an upgrade path to Debian. I am using mine as a simple backup server, but there seems to be alot of documentation on installing other software.

My only complaints have been that is a little sluggish, and a little loud when the disks spin up. And I have not measured the power consumption.
