Maxtor Shared Storage II Reviewed (Verdict: Easy Setup, But Pricey)

John over at CrunchGear got his paws on a Maxtor Shared Storage II, which is a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device with 1TB of hard drive space. Thanks to the Gigabit Ethernet interface and the 7200RPM, 16MB cache hard drive, transfers to and from the NAS are going to be quite speedy.

As you can see from the shot on John's trademark "review deck", the buttons are metallic and "RAZR-esque". He had no trouble plugging it in, turning it on, and setting it up with both Mac and Windows. Their install program required a reboot, but everything else was smooth sailing. But at $899 for 1TB, the price may outweigh the convenience.
