This is the link for the 400 ... looks good to me .. but a .hefty delivery charge puts it up to £39.58 and a tad too expensive..

Pity it's not wireless. I bagged one of these when they were on offer (4 usb ports and both wired and wireless). http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/medion-wireless-usb-hub-and-sound-s/755195

I've just done a search around and can't find it for sale anywhere, or anything similar for that matter.

This is a good price for this one at this time though. Have a little heat :)

As i'll be connecting my port directly to my wireles router, can't see why I would need to do this...

This seems boiling hot if it does what is promised...

Just in case it matters, you need to install software on every Windows PC on the network that you want to connect to it from, so it does limit you to Windoze and no ad hoc access.

If that is not a limitation hot deal!

Iomega do one that's around £49 in PcWorld but £59 on Amazon and that's wirelessN and is a lot better than this, why this is a hot deal is beyond me as it all its worth.

This is cold the final nail in its coffin is the fact that you need to install some rubbish on your machines to access it meaning no DLNA/UPNP devices can access media from the device the iconnect is fully compatible with all standards and doesn't need the CD install that this does.

Is this doing something I don't get?

You can easily remotely connect to a device with it's USB connections with the software you already have.

I can the see the point in virtualised commercial environments where servers need a physical USB connection for a DC/DVD occasionaly, but what's this for at home?
#16
You have to plug it into the mains as well so another power point needed.
#17
This sounds cool, but now I can't think of any reason to buy it.

Also probably lack of linux support is not very appealing.

@ MKultra

It turns a regular external USB HDD into a cheap NAS, accessible over your home network. So you dont have to leave it connected to a laptop/pc to access it from elsewhere...
#20
So, is this the same, it looks as if it is but £10 cheaper?

The main reason I got mine is so that I could have my printer in another room. Printers aren't the best looking peripheral so it's nice to have it out of sight.
