Additional data storage

This might be a little off topic; but what about network hard drives. My family is returning from a summer in Europe with tons of digital pictures and video. My home network is wired with an access point serving 2 laptops. My computer has 100GB hard drive. I was thinking of the network hard drive to store the media files with easy access from all computers.

Slightly different: do you have an opinion on the Mirra Personal Server from Seagate?
