    Thinking about picking up one of the Iomega 500GB external drives on sale at Best Buy and hooking it up to my Airport Extreme.

    Anyone experience with Airdisk? How is the speed? Am I able to put movies, music, etc on it and stream to my SR MBP?

    I use it, but I unfortunately cannot answer your question. I just wanted to stop in and say 'hi, thanks for thinking of me'

    fwiw I've heard of people streaming vids from it. I do know transfering crap to, and from it is usb 2.slow.

    Thanks for thinking of you? Huh?

    Well thinking of putting my iTunes library on it and just stream it to all the computers in the house instead of each having their own library.

    Thanks for having to do that test :rofl:

    Sounds like it will be fast enough for what I want to use it for.
