I was hoping for well under Â100 - I'm

I don't understand why you think a Pi v3 is Â100 more than a Zero.
It's precisely Â20 more where I buy them from. The Pi 3 has
on-board Wi-Fi, however it's limited to 40Mb/sec.
The USB IO speed is identical to that on the Pi Zero. The CPU
clock is much quicker, asd is the RAM speed, so that will help a
Personally I'd not use a Pi as a home server for many reasons,
other than for academic purposes. ie. it'll work, but ...
I use Intel Atom systems. They're under 15W + disk power now and
performance is more than adequate. If you want something ready
made, look for the HP Microervers - there are often Â100 cashback
deals on them and they have a good spec.
Its the Pi3 with decent IOÂ that is Â100 more. I've tried
one of my Pi3s and it isnt much faster than the zero on the same
I'm wanting something I can plug in USB 3 drives and rotate them
out to the shed for safe-backup reasons - a full backup on my new
laptop takes about 4 hours to USB3 and a diff backup to the zero
on a monthly basis takes around 12..15 hrs - I have a huge number
of very small files and it seems checking these takes a long time
- I'm using rsync and that seems to check only one file at a time
so even on USB3 on the same machine data rates can drop off
Its interesting to note that the small files (over a million
small midi files) , when put into a database, backup faster when
the whole database is moved than just checking each one for a
change so I'm going to modify how I hold and use them. Fortunately
the DB approach is far more utilitarian anyway.
