There was a time when I'd have all manner of things wired up and plugged in to my computer(s) but nowadays I've more or less stripped my entire home network back to nothing more than a few computers and a network storage device. We're interested in what else you have wired up to your own computer(s) at home, is it a media center, simple printing device, or just a jack of all trades!!

Multiple choice allowed on this vote :)

What's attached to my computer....ME!! LOL

Just the basics really; printer and external USB hard drive for backups. Plus a very nice 5.1 amplifier/tuner which pipes music to a couple of locations around the house.

AIO Printer and external HDD. Nothing too fancy.

The usual printer/copier/fax and some peripherals. Main PC has 2 internal HDs and 1 USB external. There is also an external burner and headphones/mic for voice dication. I play around with games...not much, so a gamepad. Almost forgot the television tuner. I have an external one, but it works superbly. This PC actually does quite a bit of double duty as a television in my bedroom where I keep the master (PC too) of the house. I have a PC Remote that makes it the way to go for me. Last a really killer USB speaker bar. I would like to get serious about using the computer around the house on a network someday. I would say it's a matter of time...

My 'other stuff' is a cassette player to digitise old tapes via Audacity.
This actually works well in case anyone else wants to try it. Audacity does a good job reducing the tape hiss.

I usually use my laptop with nothing regularly attached. However my standby, reliable, desktop with XP has a printer and scanner attached. Kept the desktop with XP on it because my 10 year old Epson flatbed scanner works perfectly but Epson does not see fit to provide a driver for Win 7. Shame, as the scanner is great. Less than ideal internet connection prevents me hooking up the laptop to audio/TV but I probably couldn't figure out how to get it to work anyway. I can't get Win 7 to network with the XP desktop. Oh well...

Just the old printer/scanner, an external hard drive, and some flash drives. I like the simplicity.

Wireless Printer (HP Photosmart), WD Passports 300 & 500GB respectively, USB keyboard and trackball, 2.1 speakers, XBox 360 Controller (playing Borderlands right now) and that's about it. I do have a graphics tablet I use occassionally as well as an occasionally connected iPod Touch and HTC 3D (Sprint Shooter) phone, but I try to minimize connections to limit system lag. It doesn't seem like a great deal of peripheral connections until you are tangled in wires and the house lights start dimming :-b

Just an HP Printer/Scanner and assorted USB plug-ins as needed (External HD, USB sticks (512MB to 8GB), camera, USB Floppy 3 1/2).
