D-Link DSM-G600 lets you roll your own NAS image

d-link dsm-c600Networked hard drives may be all the rage right now, but they tend to be a little overpriced — and don't do anything to leverage the investment you've already made in standalone hard drives that might be piling up in your office. The D-Link DSM-G600 Network Storage Enclosure is one way to solve that problem. The device looks a lot like a typical WiFi Access Point, and, in fact, can function as one when attached to a wired router. But inside, it's got space for any 3.5-inch ATA/IDE drive. Just pop in a drive, and it's on your network. But wait! There's more! (We always wanted to say that.) Unlike a lot of similar models, the DSM-G600 has two USB ports on the back, which can be used to add more hard drives, giving you virtually unlimited networked storage (we don't know whether you can add a hub, potentially chaining dozens of drives, but we'd love to give it a try). It has a street price of about $170, which is less than you'd pay for most standalone NAS drives, and only a bit more than you'd pay for some non-WiFi, non-USB-host enclosures.
