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.
On top of the stylish white enclosure you'll find a USB port and a card reader for some extra storage, which is complemented with a DVD unit that can be used to record or share media over the network. The N2R1 features all the basic security measures you'd expect from such a device and is compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac OS X operating systems. It is expected to range in price from $299 to $399 depending on storage capacity.
