I want to start looking for a NAS drive, and before I did some research, I thought the most that you could get was a basic hard drive connected to the network. After looking through the internet, though, I find that they can do some really cool stuff.
Here's what I'm hoping it would be able to do:
--Access it remotely via the web
--Stream audio, video, etc. to computers and possibly game consoles and TVs
--Built-in torrent client
--Price point around $200
I know that all of this stuff is possible, but I'm not so sure if the cheaper ones can do it. Does anyone have some personal experience or advice?
Thanks in advance,
EDIT: I was looking at this one: Link

I personally do not like the Buffalo drives. You can get a GREAT NAS device for around that prive with no drives ($120). It is the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo. I use it and it is absolutely fantastic.
