I need to expand my hard drive space for music file storage. Presently I only play the music on the computer they are stored in but it may be nice to have it as a option to have the music networked in the future. I'm looking to expand from 2gig's now to 4gig via a 2 or 4 bay external enclosure (computer is pretty full). I might do the 4 bay for future expansion, and or raid. With the cost of 2gig drive so low I am going to use them instead of single 3-4 gig drive. Are there any advantages to using a NAS over a SATA connection or even USB? I would like to have it look like one big drive to the computer but that's not critical. Also, I do run my network through a gigaport switch. Thanks for any thoughts you can offer me.
