  1. Looking to grow its share of the NAS market, LG has unveiled a new device tailored to enhance media sharing and equipped to hold large amounts of data. Available this fall in 1TB and 2TB configurations, the new N2R1 features integrated Ethernet and 802.11g Wi-Fi connectivity (no 802.11n unfortunately), as well as a MyMedia feature allowing access to videos, photos and music through a DLNA-certified media player.

    If anybody can pull it off, LG can... it has been a long time since they were Lucky Goldstar, and their growth of quality products is quite remarkable... We have the best luck with LG monitors and optical drives of any manufacturer products we use...
    Isn't quality management a funny part of the business... !

    I just bought a 47" LG LCD HDTV and it is flat-out awesome. I've had some very picky HDTV fanatics come over and take a look and they are all extremely impressed. LG is definitely making a name for itself.
    This NAS looks pretty damn hot too....
  5. A problem with many NAS systems is that they do not use the NTFS file system, but file allocation systems that are not compatible with windows. This means a HD in a NAS cannot be read by a windows system if transferred to that enviroment (if the NAS box itself failes). Also, many NAS systems can have an extra drive attached using a USB port, but only in read mode if FAT32 or NTFS formatted. For full read/write they need to formatted in a file system that again is not readable under windows. I, for one, experienced this with BUFFALO NAS systems. Does anybody know how LG will manage this on their box?

  6. What's with putting the USB and card reader on the top of the box in what looks like a pop-up? Why not just make the case a take taller? This would allow multiple units to be stacked. (And if someone is putting an extensive video collection online, 2TB may not be enough. The press release cited in this article says the box will support RAID, which most likely means using (2) 1TB drives, cutting your available space in half.
