'[OT] New NAS from WD'

New generation of home NAS:
http://reviews.cnet.com/external-hard-drives/western-digital-my-book/4505-3190_7-33528790-2.html

This new WD Mybook World Edition White Light version seems to
be very good -- smaller, cooler and much faster than the previous
generation. We have the old World Edition 500GB (first generation)
and we like it. But the speed is not that fast.

Previous generation of home NAS:

And since WD releases the GPLed Linux source codes, there might
be more hacks later.

Are you looking at these NAS devices?

Watch them all the time.  :-)  Thanks for sharing about the MyBook  
changes.

I am leaning toward getting a Drobo device myself right now.  4 disk  
RAID, without really needing to think about it, Firewire connectivity  
for a connected host...

I just bought an Iomega Home Media NAS. I chose it for a few reasons.
First off I'm not at home and this one was available here. Second, I
wanted something that would work seamlessly across Mac and PC. And
thirdly I wanted something expandable.

So far I've been fairly satisfied. It started up just fine, easy to
access over the network, and seems relatively speedy. Haven't tried
multiple users really hammering it yet though.

I like that it has a USB host built in and will write to NTFS -
something that I had trouble finding. The iTunes server is a nice
bonus and actually seems to work just fine. Supposedly it will stream
to compatible network media players but I haven't tested that yet.
