I don't see the difference between this and a NAS, except you have to have an account with Transporter for one, and you don't with the other. And the NAS doesn't have a USB bottleneck and a one-drive limitation.

The difference is this product is probably easier to use. Just make an account, plug stuff in, and done. If I remember correctly a NAS will require a lot more setup to get it to correctly work outside of someones personal network. Probably not to hard to do, but not nearly as simple as this product.

"Tech-savvy readers will know that it's relatively easy to rig a setup that does just about the same thing that the Transporter and Transporter Sync do, and for much less money."

Would someone please explain how to this less than tech-savvy reader?

There are several ways, but the simplest and least expensive I can think of is: plug an external drive with a USB connection into your computer, and share it with your network/homegroup. No $100 hockey puck required.
