Over the weekend we brought you the exclusive unboxing of Tranquil PC’s latest Windows Home Server – the Riley CP30 Storage Processor. Now it’s time for the review.
This is how Tranquil describe the Riley Server:
The Riley Server is possibly the finest server design ever created, it is now available. Hewn from a single billet of aerospace grade aluminium, and then hand finished to a soft satin texture, the Riley CP30 is simple and beautiful.
Who Are Tranquil PC?
