This is the hardware I'm looking at purchasing to plug into the back of the AEBS: http://wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=210
I suspect they were talking about the in box software that wasn't working accross a wireless network.
Is that what you mean? I am quite new at the whole RAID thing.

The reports I have read on that don't sound good at all.
I would suggest checking out OWC first before you purchase anything.

Note that a RAID0 configuration gives you no redundancy. The disks are assembled so that they look like one disk. If one disk fails you lose everything on all disks. I recommend a RAID1 configuration where a drive acts a mirror image of another drive. If you lose a drive you can replace it with no loss of data and simply rebuild the RAID1 array. Depending on the RAID hardware/software this can be done as a hot swap (no power down) or even set up with a spare drive that will step in automatically in the event of a drive failure.
