build a custom case for a graphical squeezebox. I've looked at the Roku and don't like some of it's limitations and reliance on someone else handling the server software.

I've got a bunch of audiotrons in my house that served me in good stead for background music (mp3s). But, I wanted to trim down my CD collection, and thought the ATs wouldn't work for me because I wanted losslessly encoded audio *and* tagging. Turns out that (whee!) I seem to have missed some AT development--the Turtle Beach folks now have a new piece of software that "tags" WAVs files in a manner that the AT can read 'em!

I've actually got four 250 GB Lacie USB 2.0 drives. I had the space, and it was a bit cheaper than going with one humungous drive. Had some issues with the fact that they showed up formatted FAT32, but I reformatted as NTFS and it works better with my XP system. I've got a pair hooked up to a Linksys NAS box (just an ethernet port with a pair of USB 2.0 inputs).
Had some bad experiences before with the Maxstor external drives.
