I've been looking at Seagate GoFlex Home Network and WD MyBook Live drives since they seem to be the best fit of what I'm looking for. NAS? However, none of these drives have very good feedback at all and each model have their problems. The best rating for most of them is 3/5 stars.
Does anyone have any recommendations for an ethernet port hard drive that I can merely connect to my router and access from any of my home computers (mainly HTPC) without much effort or extraneous software? It would be nice if it would somehow sleep when not in use but re-wake on me accessing it. I do not want it to be "wirelessly accessed" standalone. I just want to be able to ethernet connect it to the router and wirelessly connect to it through the router.
I need it to be relatively reliable but critical data will not be stored on it. Just pictures and video files mostly.
