Hi All,

I've recently decided to get a NAS storage device which ideally would have the ability to be accessed when not at home and/or allow external users to access files/folders (Family etc).

I also want to use it to store my iPhoto and iTunes library to free up space on my MBP.

I considered the Time Capsule but as this cant be accessed away from home discounted it at this stage.

I brought a WD My Book Live but will be taking it back today as the transfer rates are very slow. It took over 2 days to transfer 80GB and accessing files from my Mac Book Pro is also slow. Maybe this is the norm???

So, my question is: Do you have any suggestions on which to go for? In terms of budget, I'd really like to get some thing in the $300-500 bracket and it will only be serving 1 laptop.

I hope that somebody can give me some guides as I am not familiar in this field.

Thanks in advance
