I'm looking for a product similar to the Freecom Datatank Gateway. Can anyone suggest a good alternative? Freecom Datatank WLAN I was originally going to get the Freecom, but after reading some reviews it didn't seem that good. Are there any good alternatives? All I want is a 1TB HDD with wireless features, Raid 1 technology …
It lacks RAID, but I'd recommend a 1TB Apple Time Capsule. It's a wireless router with on-board storage - there's a USB 2.0 port to add more - and printer sharing. I have the 512GB version, which I use as a media store and file-swap facility for a couple of Macs, my partner's Vaio and my kid's netbook - my own netbook too.
Works a treat and is reasonably priced. And you can access its content remotely over the internet.

What you can do is put an external USB drive into the Time Capsule and schedule backups to it also.
I love my TC. It works seamlessly and is incredibly quick!
