Cirago Network Storage Link NUS1000 gets your external drives on your LAN

While external hard drives allow you to expand your storage space by leaps and bounds they’re something of a pain to keep networked on your LAN and if you turn off your PC it’s not exactly accessible now is it?

TestFreaks has a look at the Cirago Network Storage Link NUS1000 which allows you to hook up four external USB hard drives, or thumb drives, to your ethernet network:

There’s two things I don’t like about the NUS1000. The first is the fact that you cannot write to NTFS formatted devices, it only writes to FAT32, you can read from NTFS though. This means you’re limited in size as to what you can transfer to the NUS1000, no big files basically.

An interesting device that would greatly benefit from a gigE interface but I’m sure they’ll save that feature for a higher priced model.
