    Default Network Drive recommendations needed

    I am thinking of getting a network drive for backing up my pictures ( about 100G ) and tons of data.

    Any expert here to advice which brand or model is a good buy here ?

    many thanks in advance.

    A drive's a drive no matter if it's local or networked. I suppose you mean Network Attached Storage device -- or NAS -- that allows you and other users, among other things access a hard disk over the network.

    I'm using DLink DNS-323. Takes in 2 x SATA hard disk drives and allows you to configure it in 4 HD modes (RAID 0, RAID 1 etc). I've been a very happy user for a year or so now. Highly recommended.

    :Later,

    Yes, you are perfectly correct.

    sorry for the confusion.... this is what I meant exactly. A drive that is connect to a LAN ( not a HDD mapped onto the network ).

    thanks for the info, appreciated.

    Yeah, using the DNS-323, my PS3 and my Samsung LCD TV connects to it to play contents directly from it. It now runs 2 x 1.5TB at Raid 1 (Mirror) and downloading via Bittorrents 24x7 via the storage.

    The Buffalo Terastations also do quite good in this area.
