    Yowza, that is a great price. Thanks for the info, because I was going to be buying an external USB drive sometime in the near future anyway.

    For me, in Canada, Tiger Direct had the 300 GB gigabit linkstation for $330.

    In comparison, the Synology 106j (without a drive in) is $250.

    If that's Canadian $, that's pretty good for a LinkStation, and not that bad even if it's US$. From what I've seen in recent months, you need to spend at least in the neighborhood of US$1 per GB for a NAS that will run slimserver, and quite a bit more for higher end NASs. On the other hand, the DriveStation is just another "dumb" USB hard drive, which -- very roughly speaking -- tend to go for about half the price of a similarly sized NAS.
