CNET's rating: 7.3 Very good

The good: Easy to install and use; reasonably priced; capacious

The bad: Lacks FTP support; external AC adapter adds to clutter

What it's for: Adding storage and a print server to your network

Business use: Sharing key files in a workgroup

The bottom line: Maxtor's Shared Storage Drive is great, especially for those unfamiliar with networking. The computer-savvy should also consider Buffalo Technology's LinkStation.

Street price: $260
