Addonics NAS25HDU2 NAS caddy: plenty of promise, a few annoying flaws

Addonics NAS25HDU2 NAS caddy: plenty of promise, a few annoying flaws

We want to find Addonics NAS25HDU2 single-drive NAS adapter appealing - after all, a hard-drive caddy that makes any HDD network-accessible, as well as offering printer sharing and standalone BitTorrent downloads has to be good, right? - but there are a few blemishes on the spec sheet that have us looking elsewhere.  We can live without the RAID support, after all we're assuming you're not keeping your entire system backup on a single-drive solution, but the 10/100 rather than gigabit ethernet interface is at odds with the media server image.

D-Link DIR-685 Xtreme N router gets reviewed: expensively excellent

D-Link DIR-685 Xtreme N router gets reviewed: expensively excellent

As hugely convergent devices go, D-Link's DIR-685 Xtreme N Storage Router could be best of breed.  Announced at CES in January, the DIR-685 not only offers WiFi draft-n support and four gigabit ethernet ports, but a 3.5-inch display with multimedia widgets, dual USB 2.0 ports for sharing printers and external drives, and an internal 2.5-inch HDD bay for turning it into a NAS.  Overkill or network overlord?  OhGizmo! took a look, and while the DIR-685 is expensive it's also just as capable as you'd hope.
