Hi everyone, I am looking to buy a harddrive that I can share over a network. I don't want the harddrive to be attached to any specific computer, since this would require that computer to be on the network at all times. What i am looking for is just something to share things over (eg music, movies, applications). Anybody connected to the network can mount the drive and then access it as if they were physically connected to it. The thing I am worried about is transfer speed since I've used a USB drive before and transfer speeds are rather slow. Would it be faster to use a drive that connects directly to a router (rather than one that connects to a router through USB?) Then finally I don't want this to be very expensive (of course)... it would be cool if I could run linux or mac osx on it. And then of course it would be nice if I could use part of it as backup. I think 1 TB capacity would be enough and I am looking to spend 100-200 USD. Is there anything like this that's available right now? It would be useful if, e.g. when any computer downloads a media file (like mp3) they can just save it straight to the harddrive, so that we have 1 central storage place for our music libraries, etc. Thanks for the help! I've done some reading on this already but I am still not sure what is the best solution.
