Storing a Media Collection

Storing your media collection has become quite a challenge.  How do you keep up enough space to be able to store it safely and still access it.  I present today a couple of solutions toward this problem.

Synology DiskStation 2-Bay (Diskless) Network Attached Storage DS212j (White)  

Being able to expand to 8 TB with storage capacity based on the type of Raid configured, provides a nice large amount of storage capacity. However the really nice thing here is this is a DLNA Media Server.  With this being a DLNA Media server you would be able to stream your audio, video or pictures from this server to any DLNA Media Player.  If you have a DLNA setup then this is worth it's weight in gold.

Iomega eGo 3 TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive 35451

Having 3 TB that you can take with you in an external hard drive is something that is incredible.  Being able to carry your entire Music Collection, or all of you DVD's when you go to a friends house!  Also as this is USB 3.0  a number of network attached storage devices are moving in this direction for attaching additional storage capability.  This gives you the flexibility to avoid the network when want to access it directly, or put it out there to share among multiple devices to access.
