The high end (read: super expensive) Niveus Storage Server and Storage Server Pro doesn't just act as a file dump for your movies—any network attached storage can do that—it interfaces with much of your networked media equipment as well.
Here are the key features:

And as you've seen before, Niveus does high quality, high-end media center stuff, so if you're one of those people (rare, even among Gizmodo readers) that can only get the most expensive choices for their home entertainment system, here's something for you. it's US$2999 for the 2TB and US$5999 for the 4TB Pro. Not for the poor among us. [Niveus]
