    I really like the look of these, the only thing that puts me off is that it can't be powered by USB only if connected to a PC like my current Laptop hard drive solution does, it's gonna be a pain carrying a plug around aswell as the USB cable.

    Does anyone know what file system these use? (e.g is it plain windows or something specific to the box) this coupled with one of the usb to network things and parked in the living room could be seriously funky (so long as the usb-network device supports the same file system of course) :D
