    I'm looking to get a network storage enclosure... today. My question is as follows. I've found some pretty good one-drive enclosures, but I also found this pretty cool Netgear one that holds two drives for only $100:

    Problem is, you apparently have to use their software to access it, and it's PC only. Does anyone know of any other multi-drive network enclosures in around the same price range?

    If you know, lemme know by this afternoon, please!

    Thanks!

    That is a pretty cool enclosure, but I really don't need most of the stuff it offers. I'd also prefer something with the ability to hold more than one hard drive. I want specifically to put in two 300GB drives that I'm eyeing right now.

    Thanks, though.

    Ok upon further inspection, that is one totally wicked-awesome enclosure. I can't seem to find it in the States, though, or anything even remotely that cool. The printer sharing and the extra USB add-on is... wow.

    Does anyone know of anything like that available in the States? Preferably not too pricey?

    Cool, thanks for your help. I ended up getting a Simpletech Simpleshare Network drive, which had about the same features. Let's ya hook up USB printers and other drives, which is pretty nifty.
