Iomega iConnect Is a Scalable NAS Solution on the Cheap

Looking for a cheap, easy NAS solution that also lets you access your data away from home? Iomega's $100 iConnect might be the gizmo for you.

Endowed with four USB ports, plus ethernet and 802.11b/g/n connectivity, setting up the iConnect is as simple as plugging in any USB-based storage device and letting the device do the rest. Iomega's new product also allows you to set up a print server, OS X Time Machine backups, a Bittorrent client, and DLNA streaming. And while it may not possess the open linux platform or remote web-streaming abilities of the Pogoplug, it pretty much does everything else (plus Time Machine!) for $30 less.

Expect to get your hands on Iomega's OS-agnostic iConnect sometime in February. [PR Newswire]
