If you have a large or growing collection of digital photos, videos, and music, and want to share this media with other users in your household--or perhaps you want to consolidate all the media from different users and systems to a single source--then you can benefit from a NAS device. Add in automatic backups of all locally-networked PCs and remote access to the device over the Internet and you have the Linksys by Cisco Media Hub device.

The Linksys by Cisco Media Hub comes in three different versions. The NMH305 comes with 500GB of storage that can be user-upgraded to 1TB, and it sells for $299.99 (MSRP). The NMH405 also has 500GB of storage that can be user-upgraded to 1TB; but it also includes a color LCD status window, a media-card-reader, and sells for $349.99. Finally, the NMH410 has the same features as the NMH405, but it comes with a full 1TB of storage and sells for $429.99. We evaluated the 500GB NMH405 and have the article posted right here:

Linksys media hub looks like a solid, feature packed product, but for that price, couldn't you build a HTPC of SFF PC instead for better value?

Looks like a great product with the exception of the missing DivX certification/compatibility and it is SATA 150.

Edit: Ha, the engadget article links back to the HH review, that's what I get for posting too quickly.  Well congrats on getting on Engadget Dave :P.  I'll be sure to submit more of your stories to them in the future.
