Logitec is working on a
series of Network Addressable Storage (NAS) devices geared toward the home user. These are more commonly seen in small to medium sized business networks.
Ranging from 160GB to 300GB, they come with the expected LAN connection, plus three USB2.0 ports; additionally, plug a digicam or flash drive into the port on the front and press the “copy” button and your files are zapped onto disk. All models support up to 128 users and 100 shared folders, and at 60 x 213 x 181 mm and 1.4 kg in weight, they’re admirably compact.
It amazes me how much technology is migrating from the Fortune 1000 server room to the living room.
