Amazon is selling Buffalo Home Server Linkstation 300GB external HDD/NAS device.

Features:
• 300 GB available network storage
• Gigabit Networking with Jumbo Frame support (if your network is supporting it)
• Built-in DLNA server for streaming digital media to any DLNA multimedia device
• Two or more LinkStations can be used to back up each other over your network
• Simplified file sharing on your home or small office network
• Protect data by restricting access with group and user level security
• Easy setup does not require drivers
• Expandable storage by adding a USB hard drive
• Scheduled backup via USB 2.0 to external storage
• Auto-MDIX Ethernet Port automatically configures for cross-over or patch cable
• Built-in print server to print files from anywhere on your network (Works where your printer is PostScript compatible and does not require bi-directional communication.)
• Minimal power consumption and scheduleable auto power off and on

In short, this is Gigabit network drive with built-in print server and USB HDD connection. Not a bad price for such functionality, IMHO.

With respect they couldn't be more different.

to the OP - amazing deal - I bought the 250Gb one and stuck Debian (Linux) on it and it is amazing.

I might use my new amazon card and get £15 off

If you have a router you connect a NAS device to it and anyone else on that LAN an access and store files to the device without having to have another computer switched on.

You must be using a router.

this device is brilliant. I purchased the 250GB version from Staples a while ago , mind you it wasnt the Gigabit version.

Having an network connection rather than a usb makes this like a standaolne storage device on the network , can be on 24x7 serving files , movies , music and not consuming much power. With the 3rd party addons available for the unit - different firmware - twonkyvision etc makes for a great network device

XBOX media center , hooked up to one of these units is a brilliant combination. you can actually run BitTorrent client, save directly to the unit , stream the download onto xbox / pc or any other media enabled device.

run asterics VOIP services for your home etc. you may need a bit of technical experience and time to play with the unit. but in most part following the tutorials available on various sites you cant go wrong.
