Does anyone know where I could get a hard drive enclosure for 1 SATA drive that has USB 2 and Ethernet connectivity?

Im looking to have a hard drive connected directly to my Samsung TV but also have it on the network.

Any suggestions?

I see one here, but its over $100 (im looking to go cheaper), plus it looks like it got some bad reviews:

"Also"? As in have it connected to USB and Ethernet at the same time? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Nov 23 '10 at 0:20
Yes - the USB will go into the TV and the ethernet to the router – barfoon Nov 23 '10 at 2:44

I don't think you're going to find something that will let you connect to both simultaneously. Your best bet is to put it on the network via Ethernet and have a media device that will connect to the network and output to the TV.

This is somewhat a shopping recommendation post, and possibly runs afoul of the FAQ. However, I didn't expect to find this, so I wanted to post it more as a "this exists" than a referral -
