I'd like to buy a network attached storage drive for my home and spend no more than $350. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you.

The WD drive costs around $800.

I was looking at Buffalo LinkStation Live drives. 500 GB or 750 GB.

Costco Canada has the 1TB version of the WD drive for $379. I believe the drives are in face upgradeable.

And what hardware do you use? I was thinking the same thing, BYOD :p

I have a Linksys NSLU2. It works OK but the customerservice/productsupport of Linksys isn't that great. Hasn't been an official firmware upgrade from them in years (07/06/2005) ...

The NSLU stuff it pretty good if you start getting into all the third-party firmwares and so on.

I second the MyBook World Ed. They are pretty sweet, I have a 500gb one which cost me less than 200USD. The only thing with the WD's you have to make sure you get a fanless one, a quick Google search says there are two types and the one with the fan is loud as hell :)

I would like to try this third-party firmware but I have little experience with linux... don't want to mess up my NSLU2
