Think i remember these doing the rounds a while back and it came out that they were indeed networkable.

It doesn't explicitly mention this on the detail but notice the free "Ethernet Cable"....

Pretty darn tempting, i notice that there is an ebuyer 500gb drive doing the rounds at the same price, an extra 100gb or LAN capability? the choice is yours :-)

What was the catch with these again? Do they share over cifs/samba or do you need a client installed?

Dunno but mine (SE) has Ladies’ Neoprene Wetsuit at £19.99:?

Bring back the horse blankets I say, screen doors and submarines anybody?:giggle:

Just a little warning - this is NDAS (hence the price) device. The difference between NAS (the 'proper' network storage) and NDAS is that you'll need to install special drivers on your PCs. Non-PC (such as Network players, for example) devices won't be able to access it.

Hi, That's a very good price for a 400Gb with LAN IMHO. Checked nearest store and it's not in there unfortunately. Shame their offers are regional as it's very hard to work out what offers are on in the region that you fall under. Cheaper than buying a 400Gb USB2.0 External Hard Disk Drive and let's say a Linksys NSLU2 to attach the Hard Disk Drive to a LAN.

Cannot source but voted hot!.

NSLU2 + USB Disk is standalone (not driver-dependent) device and can do MUCH more than this box ;-)

Any idea the cheapest place to get an NSLU2 at the moment?

It is 53 quid on eBuyer (delivered) but not sure if this is the cheapest one. This is one of those things that not becoming cheaper :(

Hi Kommunist, Agreed NSLU2 can do much much more than this box. Would like to get one of these up and running as a low-power consumption web-server running off a USB Flash Drive (pics uploaded to a free hosting provider) but need to be concentrating in order to do this as don't want to make my NSLU2 into a brick. Guess that you're very knowledgeable on this device. The NSLU2-Linux web-site is an excellent resource but I'm afraid that I'm not sure what needs to be done and doesn't as a newbie. Tried and failed to source an NSLU2 primarily for this project whilst the Google Checkout £10.00 off £30.00 promotion was running but eBuyer and other e-tailers who were participating in the offer had all sold out. Not surprising though I guess.

Best Regards.

I wouldn't call myself "very knowledgeable" regarding NSLU2 device. I simply set it up with 2TB of diskspace (5 USB HDDs) and also installed Twonkyvision UPnP AV server to use with my DLink DSM-320RD. I tried ushare server but didn't like it. I am also using it to stream video to PS2 and Xbox but that's another story.

Yes, NSLU2-Linux group is a very good start.
There are several firmware projects available and binaries/sources are available from this site. As I am quite lazy guy I decided to go for Unslung 6.8 beta and not for something that requires a lot of hacking. It is quite easy to install Unslung, just follow instructions from the Readme file.
