I am trying to decide which would be better for our home network.
The Buffalo Linkstation has 250Gb of Network Storage via Ethernet and also has 2 USB ports which can accomodate an additional USB hard drive and a USB printer. Also has a built in FTP server and a Print server.
The Lacie Ethernet Mini has 250GB storage space which can be connected either by Ethernet on a network or directly to a USB port on a computer to be used for personal storage. Does not include any expansion options.
Both are available for pretty much the same price. Our home network currently consists of 2 computers although a third may be added in a few years time when my little sister is old enough to want her own computer. The storage drive is intended to replace the portable USB Pocket Drive we currently use as it is reaching its capacity (30GB).
Does anyone have any experience of either of these storage drives?
