EverythingUSB just reviewed Silex's latest Hi-Speed USB Device Server - SX-2000U2. Sharing a USB device could only be done if the device was connected to a PC, but if that PC is turned off or unavailable, the USB device is too. There has been at least one USB server available - the Keyspan USB Server, which puts all your USB stuff on the LAN, but that's limited to USB 1.1 (aka classic USB) speed. So, Silex's SX-2000U2 Hi-Speed USB Device Server is something you would need if you want to share some USB 2.0 MFPs, hard drives or flash drives on the network.
