    Anyone running this NAS? Does anyone recommend a other type of NAS?

    The router I'd connect it to is a Moto SBG 6580. Here's a link to the product page.

    Thanks for your help!

    If your after a NAS solution, be prepared to do some research.

    I really really liked the idea of the WD my world book NAS solutions, untill I read bad reviews about it being loud and slow.

    Many companies now offer some form of NAS solution, but you should consider a few things.

    1) final capacity you need for storage
    2) connectivity, usb, firewire, ethernet, dint forget usb 3 is trying closer to becoming a new standard.
    3) data redundancy, do you need raid
    4) access, do you need access via the web, ssl, ssh, telnet
    5) servers, do you need then for: itunes, dnla, http(s), ftp, mail etc ...
    6) budget, speaks for itself.

    Imho you get what you pay for. My NAS solution cost me close to
