Linksys Network Storage Link


Product Review. A very clever product from Linksys. This is basically a small computer that takes USB 2.0 drives, runs Linux on an Intel Network processor and comes out on TCP/IP as a SAMBA server.
It's an incredibly cheap way to build a Network Attached Storage system for a home. Only $75, this means that you can connect a bunch of USB 2.0 external drives in and you don't have to run a whole Windows server to have storage. I love it.
A great option for the home or for a small business. Goes to show what happens when you build lots of network functions into separate boxes vs. a gigantic server.
Just put two 300GB drive on this thing and every home now has a nice backup and central storage solution.
