    im in the process of buying a nas drive for my house, used for music films etc for a desktop pc laptop and my 360.

    anyway few questions i need help on.....

    think im going to go for the buffalo link station nas drive

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Buffalo-Lin...6?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1200351286&sr=1-6

    anybody got one or know of a better drive?

    and last but not least, would it be better to watch films streamed through wmp11 or through usb from the nas to the 360?

    I have a linkstation running Twonkyvision to stream files to my 360 and PS3 over wireless - works very well!

    Twonkyvision software takes care of the streaming for you so you can stream any file on the NAS across the network.

    D-Link 323. Load the fun_plug on it and then use it as a mini linux server. I have mine working as an NZB downloader, a torrent downloader. You can make it do lots more too depending on your requirement as you can load software on it for Linux Debian.

    I am very happy with it's performance as a NAS box also. (loaded with Twonkyvision)

    There is a really good wiki - google d-link 323 fun_plug wiki.

    I have a qnap-109 and it is fantastic. It runs slimserver and twonkyvision, has a torrent download manager, auto spins down (only uses 14 watts at full load anyway) and you SSH into it from work. Has loads of USB ports for extra drives and superb web interface. Only problem is that they cost a fair bit.

    Have heard great thing about qnap but remember you also need to purchase the HardDrive seperately.
    Komplett have it on offer this week. Very tempted myself but before i saw the offer i had just bought a 250gb Western Digital Passport II from pixmania for £79. Think i'll be able to live with moving it laptop to\from 360 seeing as its usb powered.
