I have the original, old, GlobalScale SheevaPlug with the single USB
port and no SATA. I get ok performance with a USB hard drive, but now
that SATA devices (Sheeva+, GuruPlug, etc) are available I don't see a
reason to limit yourself to USB unless you get a screaming deal.

BTW "Kirkwood" is probably a better name for these things, as all the
various "Plugs" and many NAS devices use the Kirkwood SOC and are 99%
compatible with each other once you get uBoot sorted.
