Came across this NAS(network attached storage) solution from Netgear when looking have a central place for all my media files, noticed that Netgear are having a promotion whereby if you buy the product before end of june you can claim a free 500GB hard disk from them:http://www.netgear.co.uk/free500gbdrive.php
If you have a few computers at home and like to share a lot of files this seems like a great solution!
Notable features (IMO):
Can run Squeeze Box server
Can share your media to consoles like XBOX and PS3 (so you can access video, photos, music without using the PC!)
Downloads torrents without a need for PC to be on
