Question Network Storage Drive

Hi all

I am looking to buy a new network storage drive but I am not sure which one to get. I have listed my two favorites so far below. They are fairly similar but have a few differences. For example, the Maxtor looks to be easier to install but the NetDisk is much more secure. I just had a few questions before I pick one to buy. How important is it that the drive is secure? Are networked drives easy to hack into (I would have this plugged into a wireless network)? Does anyone have any experience with either one of these drives or if not do you have experience with a good drive that you would recommend? Thanks for your help.

NetDisk Portable 400GB External Hard Drive (NDU10-400)

Maxtor 320GB Shared Storage II (STM303204SSAB0G-RK)

I may be wrong, but a net work drive is just as easy to get into as anything else on your network. And just like on any computer, you can password protect files to make them more secure if you want.

As long as you have good firewall and wireless security (if you have wireless) then you are ok.
