A little above the ~$200 price point (probably more like $350 including
the drive), but I can't rave enough about this :
SATA NAS that actually uses Linux as the OS, ext3 file system, runs
Samba and FTP. Also supports iTunes audio (whatever that is), P2P
client. Has Gigabit ethernet too.
I can confirm from installing 4 of these babies "out there" that Ubuntu,
Mandriva and Windows all mount the shares without an issue. I've had
mine for about 13 months now, not a single issue. I can also confirm
transfer rates to my Hardy desktop around 5MB/sec.
If anyone wants one, a mate of mine can source them -
