    Not indepth, and I'm sure someone could give you more information. But..You can access the drive over the internet + other features.

    The USB port is just for connecting other external storage like flash drives. It connects to your router by gigabit ethernet.

    Yes direct into your router....You-Tube has some great links regarding NAS, including how to set-up this type of device.

    Anyone got any idea of the write speed of this?

    I am guessing it is totally dependent on your internet connection.

    So most likely slower than a normal usb 2.0 external harddrive.

    Over Gigabit Ethernet, we saw sequential write rates of 33MB/sec and read speeds of 50MB/sec – fast enough to copy a 1GB video file to the drive in around 30 seconds. FROM PC PRO

    No problems whatsoever :) I've got the 1Tb version of this, but thinking of getting one of these as well.

    Hope its better than the Seagate Home Media version, i was getting 6mbps write speeds on it, it was attached to my Gigabit router. Gave up and bought a USB 3.0 adapter kit for it and attached it direct to my computer.
