    Freecom Storage Gateway LAN 500GB review

    This Freecom device is a rather unique NAS drive and comes complete with a built-in wireless router, making it a good option if you don't have a wireless router already.

    Home Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are at last becoming sleek enough for people to want to use in their home. Netgear has worked wonders with this tidy-looking 500GB device, which can be expanded to 1TB.

    Buffalo LinkStation Mini 1TB review

    6  

    When Buffalo visited the TechRadar offices to show off this product its representatives confessed that they didn’t quite know who would buy the LinkStation Mini. A squashed down version of the company’s very successful LinkStation Live range, the Mini packs in two 500GB 2.5-inch laptop hard drives in a fanless casing.

    Freecom Storage Gateway WLAN 250GB review

    For such a compact little drive, Freecom's new Storage Gateway packs a mighty punch. The styling and finish are excellent, but the most obvious difference between this drive and its main rivals is the antenna that sticks up from the back

    Linksys Network Storage Link for USB 2.0 review

    2  

    Providing a network bridge between an external disk and a home network is a welcome idea, offering anyone who has already invested in one or more USB storage devices a way to network their files, but Linksys' Storage Link is badly conceived

    Iomega Storcenter review

    8  

    The Storcenter is beautifully compact, enclosing its two drives in a simple, understated solid metal body. There's support for Gigabit Ethernet, RAID 1 and 0 and uPnP for media streaming, as well as two USB sockets for networking a printer.

    Data Robotics Drobo review

    8  

    Yes, it's an external case for a hard disk, and, yes, it costs £350 without a single drive fitted, but we're still really excited about this product. To understand why, you have to understand the problems it's here to solve...

    D-Link DNS-323 review

    6  

    The case feels a bit cheap, but once installed, the drives are secure and protected. The twin-bay setup allows two 750GB hard drives to be installed for 1.5GB in RAID 0 or 750GB of entirely secure RAID 1 data storage.

    Devices that are designed to bridge the gap between IT and AV equipment are big business. Until now wireless media adapters have hogged the technological limelight, enabling you to stream content from a PC to a TV via a set-top box

    Microsoft Windows DVD Maker review

    DVD Maker is included with Windows Vista Home Premium Edition, or any higher version. Does this mean the other makers of DVD authoring software have something to worry about? Well, not really

    We’re excited about the Drobo, but the obvious question to ask is why Data Robotics didn’t add Ethernet; with such a large, growing pool of storage in place, it makes sense to have it available to all users on a network.

    The DNS-323 from D-Link enables you to make your own network-attached storage device. We say 'make' because this is only an enclosure and doesn't come supplied with any drives - you have to buy them separately.
