Network Attached Storage devices (NAS) are really starting to catch on in a big way.  As the name implies they offer storage that is easily communicated with over a network, much like Storage Attached Networks (SAN) that are common in enterprise level networks.  A NAS is much easier to use and set up, being a stand alone box with wizard driven menus for setup.  The Synology DS109j is a single bay, making it smaller and more economical compared to NAS that hold several drives and is a perfect example of its species.  Check out the video surveillance capabilities, multiple remote connection abilities and more over at Hardware Bistro.
