    REVIEW: Western Digital's place in the hard disk market isn't really arguable; it's a company that almost never fails to impress, whether it's inside or outside of your PC. The MyBook and WorldBook have built it a solid reputation among external drive aficionados, and the Raptor and Velociraptor internal drives - running at 7200 and 10,000 rpm respectively - are some of the world's fastest.

    Iomega StorCenter Gigabit Ethernet 500GB review

    Iomega StorCenter Gigabit Ethernet 500GB review

    9  

    As its name suggests, this is a fast Gigabit Ethernet NAS drive, based on a single SATA II hard drive in capacity choices ranging from 250GB to 750GB. Iomega do actually make a 1TB version of the drive as well, but this includes two hard disks with RAID options, at about twice the price.

    Freecom Network Drive Pro 500GB review

    Freecom Network Drive Pro 500GB review

    9  

    The uncommonly quiet-running Freecom Network Drive Pro makes the most of the cooling properties of its stylish aluminium case for reduced fan speed and noise. Features such as soft shut-down after a selected number of hours make the drive even more eco-friendly and easy to live with, and initial setup is simplicity itself.

    LaCie Ethernet 2Big Network Drive 1TB review

    9  

    Available in capacities of between 1TB and 2TB, this drive is about twice the price of most rivals, but then it does include two hard drives rather than one.

    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.

    8  

    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

    10  

    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

    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

    9  

    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.

    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...
