Any particular reason you need a network, rather than direct attached, device?

Ok, there were some changes in Lion that effected NAS communications. Check and make sure that whatever device you decide on supports Lion (shouldn't be more than a firmware upgrade, as LaCie did), or check out the various hacks.

One thing's for sure, NAS will be slower than direct-attach. Always.

and what do you mean by open a partition to the outside?
