Networked Storage Options
For a while I've been looking for a network-attached hard drive: something that the notebook or desktop computer can access, as a place to share and backup files. There are many single-drive NAS devices available for low-cost, but they offer no data redundancy (ADS NAS drive kit). There are also several products that offer drive redundancy through RAID 1 or 5, but they're quite expensive (Buffalo TeraStation). For general documents--but especially photos--I want a RAID system that will offer redundancy.
I recently stumbled across a product that might be a good mid-way point: the Netgear Storage Central SC101. It's a network-attached storage device with spots for two drives, offering mirrored redundancy. It's not too expensive, and it gets generally favorable reviews. It might be a good solution. Are there any direct competitors to this product?
