I find this one incredibly cheap (15$): NetDisk ENCL-1P 3.5" USB 2.0/RJ-45 Ethernet NAS External IDE HDD Enclosure
I've found it on Amazon too, with reviews that may help determine how it works or if it could be OPL compatible.
Do you think it can work with OPL? It says "Ximeta NDAS 2011 chipset", if that can help somehow.
EDIT: Forget it, I've read it's IP-less and needs drivers on every computer you connect it... So I guess that makes it not compatible with OPL.
EDIT 2: I found this on the website of the manufacturer (Ximeta, under "Markets and applications/NDAS applications"):
Found more info (quite old, from 2002!) about the BroadQ thing here
-Sony's PlayStation 2 is another example to demonstrate the application and flexibility of NDAS technology
-XIMETA's partner, BroadQ developed a title CD which turns Sony PlayStation 2 into a network multimedia player.
-Install the software to allow Sony PlayStation 2 to retrieve multimedia files (photos, music, movies) stored in NDAS storage and play them directly to your TV.
Maybe there's is way to make it work with OPL, could be a great solution (because it is really cheap and small) for those who can't put an old computer with FreeNAS on the family living room...

Very doubtful if it's IP-less since SMB is IP based. If aesthetics are your main concern, I'd suggest a MyBook World Edition.
What troubles me is the fact that you don't need pretty. I have an Ubuntu server in a desktop in my room. My router is in the next room and my PS2 is in the living room. A little wire under the carpet never hurt anyone. So you could easily run an old desktop with FreeNAS from a room or closet, no need for a monitor... and simply run a wire from it to the router/switch and from there to the PS2.
We're just giving you solutions. But it's your money.

Main concern is price, then aesthetics (size, the smaller the better) and power consumption.
Bad thing that unit won't probably work, because (I think) it would be the perfect solution...
Which protocol did the BroadQ CD use to connect to one of this NDAS devices? If they are IP-less, then as you said, it couldn't be SMB.
I'm tried to make my NAS to work, it's un NETSHARE GX ME-725GNS (http://www.welland.com.tw/html/network/752gns.html) with the same configurations of bootlegninja, but when i start the network in my PS2 i recieve the message "no itens". I trie to put the archivies in the folder PUBLIC and create news dirs and nothing happing. Anyone now how to solve the problem?
I'm using the OPL 0.7 r247, and USBUtil 2.0 to create the games and the Ul.cfg.
