As a network expands, whether it is a media based home network or a small-business network, the need for accessible centralized storage becomes a higher priority. In response to this growing issue a number of companies have packaged a standalone storage device designed to take up this role.

The standalone, network-attached storage device is a computer designed specifically for the storage and dissemination of data along a network. The device consists of a processor and motherboard, network adaptor card (standard and/or wireless), and one or two bays of hard drives. The beauty of this product is that it is designed from the ground up to do only one thing, provide data storage on a local or remote network, and because of this the product excels.

The following list is of the three top network-attached storage devices in no particular order.
