Yeah, I know a few people who use them as Media Streaming devices. Thing is that's a 'swings an roundabouts' method. While the Pi, as you say, draws very little power you still have to power an external HDD. The Pi is not USB 3.0 so data transfer will be reduced it'd probably work out just the same to have a dedicated NAS

I suspect lot's of Pi's will join the waffle maker and soda stream kit at the back of the cupboard. :-D
