About 18 months ago I put 250gb Buffalo external storage units into my 
customers' stores.  These have a Hitachi drive in them IIRC and are both 
USB 2 + ethernet connectable.  I imagine they have a 1 TB model, or 
bigger, by now. Regardless of the mfg, I'd go with one that has an 
ethernet 192.168.x.x addressable device 'cos then it won't matter what 
O/S you're hooked up to.
