I have scrapped the idea of the network thing, as I guess it won't work as well as I had hoped for
basically want a 500gb (ish) NTFS ext. drive for under £100
play.com would be good - as i have said before free postage (coz im cheap)
External hard drives (hopefully for the last time :D)(11 posts)
I have experience with the Seagate and WD MyBook (2nd and 3d). Those work well. The Maxtors are always a little cheaper. No idea why. The IOMEGA had a good test report in a German mag.
This may also serve your network setup that you originally wanted. Here I had Lingoes translate what they said about the IOMEGA. "With the Iomega home network with 500 GB hard drive, you can quickly and easily files on your home network to share (up to 4 users). Share photos, music and videos on your home network freely and expand your storage capacity. Using the Discovery Home Tool utility for PCs is set up to a children's game, because the hard drive is automatically configured so that they are compatible with every computer in your network together. This cost-effective network hard drive (NAS), together with EMC Retrospect HD software for touch-free backup of all your important files." It's not very fluent, but you may get the idea. Maybe you can find more info in English.
