Does anyone have any recommendations for NAS? I'm basically looking for a device that connects to any established network & isn't a server. I already have a server & just need something on the network to store multimedia so several people can access it on one place. Something with about a terabyte or more of storage & a fast connection. I have a switch to connect it to that has a couple of gigabyte ports.

Also I can't afford a gazzilion dollars as well. Something reasonably priced.

Well... the dog decided to roll around on my mags, and reburied the the ones I dug out last night.

I remember one was from NetGear. Maxtor and Western Digital also had some, but most of those came with a max of 500gig, with USB posts to add more.

Thanks for the help!! I found out that this network had setup an external drive to the server without me knowing about it. It seems to be doing what they want.
