Default Storing digital photographs

In addition to being a technology guru, I'm a photographer, and I was reading a post here that struck a chord.

Essentially, I, too, can't keep up with digital photography files that keep crowding my hard drive. I probably have in the neighborhood of 1 terabyte of photos at this time, and that's before I take into consideration backups.

What are you doing? Are NAS storage devices a reasonable solution for individuals? I've long since run out of space in my main PC to add hard drives. Hard drives keep getting bigger, but they're not growing fast enough, in my opinion.

Thanks.

Networked Attatched Storage or just plugging USB Hard drives into your PC is a good idea

If you have run out of space in your computer to add hard drives then get a few cheap old computers and fill them with big drives, and run them as servers on a network or something.

Anyone seen or used the new Netgear NAS boxes?
