Fan noise. While I may not have a 2850, I ran 2x 2950 III's for about 4 years, and the fan noise is LOUD, even AFTER the initial bootup. Initial bootup, those things scream like jet engines on full afterburner. Power consumption, hooked up to my kill-a-watt, idle power is around 220-250W,

I concur with Ryan's readings with the 2950s - we use them as KVM host machines in a datacentre environment and they average around 250W under moderate load. That's with 4x SSDs in each. Also worth mentioning that pfSense will barely use a gig of disk space; the 6x 73GB SAS units specced by
