Ok so the question is with all the very large inexpensive external storage options becoming available which types suit themselves better to what we want to do? 3TB Network $159.00 with code, 3TB USB3 $169.00. USB3, Network, eSATA, if you are lucky enough Thunderbolt?
If this is going to store music, pictures, RecordedTV, vidoes, being accessed by multiple clients I say the heck with theory we need to put this to the test and see which one works best. It might be a USB connected to the USB port of a router suprisingly enough, but do we know. Has anyone tried this and come to a conclusion?
