One Terrabyte of external storage! The My Book Pro Edition II is an external storage system comprised of a dual drive featuring RAID striping or mirroring. If you need redundancy then you can halve the size of the HD to 500 GB and you are automatically protected against one of the internal storage drives failing, or you can use mirroring to get a 1 TB of storage with almost twice the throughput. Supports FireWire 800, FireWire 400, and USB 2.0, and includes a cable for each.

Ya, that's my thinking as well. If you're already going for this kind of external storage, then NAS is the way to go. It's not THAT big of a deal though, as you can just expose the drives on the computer to the network, making it act like a NAS. It'd just be nice to plug and play without having to do that kind of setup.

This guy is not a NAS which means you're paying $550 for $260 worth of storage. It does have the built in RAID system, but why not make it a NAS while you're at it. Seems a waste at this price point to me.

Does this thing have ethernet capability and act as a NAS? If not, then it's not THAT cool.

That's tons of memory!
