You can never be too rich, too thin, or have enough storage - especially if you're a digital media packrat. Buffalo Technology feels your pain and its TeraStation NAS can help ease it, but be prepared to be a little less rich if you go for it.

An increasing number of consumer networking products are based on open source software. But manufacturer support of open source development efforts is usually limited to (sometimes) posting source code but more often just turning a blind eye as dedicated hackers add missing capability and improved features. Buffalo Technology's new Revolution division is taking a different approach of embracing open source developers and producing products made to be hacked. Jim Buzbee takes a look at the first fruits of the Revolution, the Kuro Box.

Cisco LogoWe tend to get pretty jaded with all the over-hyped me-too products that we see. But once in a while a product comes along that restores our faith in the networking industry's ability to innovate and deliver real value. Linksys' Network Storage Link for USB 2.0 Disk Drives may have an unassuming name, but once you see what this product can do, we think you'll agree that a new networking product category has been born!

We take a second look at XIMETA's inexpensive alternative for Networked storage and review the NetDisk Office. XIMETA has made some improvements in its NDAS technology, but you may still be faced with an unacceptable tradeoff in order keep more money in your wallet.

Mirra's Personal Server recently had its first major feature upgrade. We found that the new version 1.1 has some welcome feature adds and bug fixes. But it still doesn't do what you'd think a file server - personal or not - should do.

Does a product that combines 120GB of networked storage with a PPTP/IPsec VPN endpoint router for about $350 sound like a good deal? We thought it might, but Tritton's All-in-one Server Appliance (ASAP) and ioGEAR's Broadband Office Storage Server(BOSS) share what we think is a fatal flaw that should make you think at least twice before you buy.
