Anyone know what the transfer rates are like through the USB port? I don't see any indication of USB 2.0 or 3.0.

Thanks!

Its USB 2.0, and the transfer speed is below par.

Look at the review from CNET http://reviews.cnet.com/routers/b...entBody;1r

Thanks for that link. The chart at the end is exactly what I've been looking for.

Those transfer rates are a deal breaker for me. Looks like I might wait for a deal on an E4200. The chart shows it is 3-4 times as fast as the N600. It might be more pricey, but it'll be worth it for me.

This might be a dumb question, but which of those categories should I be looking at for NAS transfer speeds?

I see that the ASUS WL-520GU has a USB port, but the product description sounds like it only supports printers. Looks like the RT-N16 might be a good option for me.

Not to sidetrack this thread any further since it's no longer focused on the router listed in the OP, but I already have a 3TB external drive that I'm using and I was looking for a way to get it off my desk and onto the middle floor of our house to allow my wife to get at some of the pictures so she can work on them in Photoshop on her machine while she's in the basement. I don't need blazing speeds, just something reasonably fast and reasonably priced that will allow her to scroll through the pics and download the handful she'd like to work on at any given time. Upload speeds aren't a major factor since we're not talking about movies or anything bigger than 10-12MB for 98% of the files.

If you don't need a router, a cheap USB-ethernet link, pogoplug or a ethernet-capable USB/SATA dock (ex. dockstar) will be fast enough but they generally cost about the same price as the router in this deal.
