How about www.newegg.com ? You can also get NAS (Network Attached Server)
storage and it will be available anywhere on your net.

Captain,

What is this NAS, this is like a server machine on N/W, can be access
from anywhere right?. Even If I work at client location, I have a N/W
connection at client location,. can I access this like a server?. How
it differs from External HDD connected to Router through USB?. Is NAS
had more advantages than External HDD?. Thanks in advance.

Yes, NAS is a server on your network that only does file sharing. You can
connect to it with any client.

I do not know of any simple routers with USB ports that support drives.

NAS would have significantly slower file transfers than a firewire or USB
2.0 attached external drive.

An external HDD can be shared over the network and accessible from any
client on your network.

The real advantage of NAS is that it's an inexpensive way to share files
that is not dependent on someone's workstation for support (and doesn't
disappear when that workstation crashes or is inadvertently shutdown). It
also doesn't take up a user's workstation resources.
