    Well, if you are going the Pi route, your only option to connect the drives is going to be USB2.

    As far as network connectivity goes, it has a 10/100 port, but that would max out at around 11MBps, so you wouldn't have to worry about the bottleneck being the USB HDD.

    I've seen the rPi at work. Don't expect much from it as a NAS device. It doesn't have enough CPU. Much better off getting a Marvell-based plug computer-dock thingy, IMHO, if you can't afford that mini-NAS device with EXT2/3/4 support and a GigE port.

    Just saw this today - $70 for a Seagate GoFlex ... could be what you want.

    I've never used it and didn't look too closely at the specs.

    That looks like a newer model than the ones I have, but I've been using quite a few of those for external backups. So far they seem to be decent.
