@ Ben: I did some research, and it does not look like the device is able to be networked directly. It has an eSATA port and you could connect it to a PC, then set it up in the network from there as a shared drive (or drives). I also found the following statement online, and it seems to contradict the description provided above:

This model (v7AGE420-ES) does not have RAID functionality unless connected to a compatible e-SATA controller. Model v7AGE420-SAUF has built in RAID.

I also found it odd that every link to the manufacturer's product page pops up a "404 - NOT FOUND" error. Here's that link (I copied it from Newegg, Directron, and Amazon - they all had this same link): http://www.istarusa.com/storage/mini_trayless/v7age420es.aspx

If anyone can find a real tech sheet on this device, I'd be interested in knowing if it truly has built-in RAID functionality as suggested in the product name "iStarUSA 4-Bay Trayless eSATA RAID Box", or if the quote I found and posted above is accurate or not..... it still would be a great win!!! I have such an accumulation of videos and music, that I've already filled up most of a 320gb and 250gb drive, plus 3 external drives of 80gb, 120gb, and 300gb!!! I'd fill this baby up with four 750gb (a friend has a dozen of these drives and will sell me them for $30 each!) and free up some space.

LOL, not that late. Only a few eligible so far. That means the odds are VERY good. You only need 3 more posts! If you haven't guessed. I am trying to get some activity here in our forums. Next month will be another giveaway. And a new one each month till the end of the year. Keep posting and there may be some extras in there.
