I do work in IT anyway and do not necassarily need a pre-built one so if anybody can recommend a good deal on the seperate parts then that would be fine.

Thanks :)

im in the same situation.. but all around £100, £80 is the cheapest i have found, on ebuyer.

if you want a ready to run pice of kit the is the "My Book World Edition" roughly £130 for 1Tb
then you have the option for the D-link twin sata hard drive caddy system with a Gb netowrk port
again roughly £130 for the caddy and just add your own HDD's up to 1Tb in each drive
or there is the slightly cheaper Icy Box twin sata caddy which is about £85 plus your HDD's
both these get good reviews

I was hoping for something a bit cheaper than that, I guess it's probably not going to happen though.

Thanks anyway though mcallim, rep added.

DROBO! http://www.drobo.com/
By the way, if anyone has a few quid that they're not using at the moment I really NEED one of these, thanks for listening :)

I would second this suggestion. Under £60 on ebuyer (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/65399). It can be used as a web server, print server, BitTorrent device and a lot of other uses. Requires Linux experience to get the most out of it but theres a whole community out there that can advise.

So could I potentially get one of those and run a usenet client on it ?

Somebody at work mentioned Drobo the other day but that is definitely out of my price range unfortunately.

How about a buffalo linkstation, cheap enough to pick up on eBay.

If you get a 120gb one you can simply swap out the drive for a larger ide drive. It can also work as a print server and you can connect extra usb enclosure to it to.

There is a good hacking community for them. I have a couple of them running custom firmware one with a 250gb drive and one with a 320gb drive (just got a Linkstation Pro Duo which supports 2x sata drives to replace them it will give me 2TB) I have ssh, torrents, ftp and a UPnP media streamer running on one that provides 2 xbmc xboxs and a 360 with video, photos and music. Its a neat and tidy solution, very very quiet.

For the record, my new to me Linkstation Pro Duo cost me 30 quid delivered from a guy on ebay, I have to get a couple of 1tb sata drives so that will be another 150 quid but to have a 2tb network file and media server I think it is a bargin.
