    anyone use one of these? buffalo makes a nice 320 gig one for 200 bucks that will also stream movies/music. im looking to buy one since the old PC that i turned into a NAS dies whenever we lose power. the HDD shits the bed and i have to reinstall everything. so its no longer a good way to backup data!

    Seagate has nice solutions for CHEAP! Their new FreeAgent external drives are competatively priced and very reliable, and also loaded with space!

    yea but i want something that is separate from my main rig. that is the point of a NAS. you can access it via ftp/samba/web and it backs everything up whenever you schedule it too. it is its own unit.

    I've been using my old discarded rigs, loaded with harddrives for network storage. Even a 233MMX will serve up files just fine. The freebie option ;)
