Excerpt: Doesn’t everyone have a few USB Memory Sticks or a USB hard drive that they want to share their content with their family and friends? Personally, I have a 500GB USB hard drive and a couple of 8GB Memory Sticks that I and my children constantly move from computer to computer to share content. I have tried a couple of other proposed solutions, which I reviewed for The Gadgeteer. None of the proposed solutions have panned out.
Pros: Simple and affordable at $74.99 list price (Street price of less than $70), Innovative design points including placement of USB 2.0 ports on the front and back, Support for any USB 2.0 device, Support for all major OS platforms, including Windows, Mac, and Linux, Quiet and compact - no fan noise and low power consumption, International-ready product for those that travel
Cons: Slow access when compared to a multiple drive NAS device, Gloss black product is a magnet for fingerprints, Detailed instructions on how to enable services and sharing within the web browser-based management console
