Iomega Introduces iConnect Wireless Data Station

Earlier this  week Iomega introduced a new user friendly NAS device to the masses, known as the iConnect Wireless Data Station. This simplehubs  provides an easy user friendly way off adding USB storage into a network enabling users to connect, share and access files anywhere, even over the Internet.

Debuting at CES 2010, the iConnect Wireless Data Station does not have any onboard storage, although it does enable users to hook up to a router (wired or wireless) in order to share content off four USB devices (hard drives or USB flash drives) automatically. This makes it a snap to share data, as it also works from any networked Windows PC, Mac or Linux workstation.

iConnect Wireless Data Station Features:
  • Easy file sharing, data backup and print serving from any networked Windows PC, Mac or Linux workstation.
  • Gigabit Ethernet and wireless connectivity by connecting directly to your router in either a wired or wireless (802.11b/g/n wireless protocol) configuration.
  • Remote access allows you to connect securely from anywhere in the world and get full access to pictures, videos, files - everything stored on the connected USB drives. An added bonus: remotely access and administer the iConnect device through a personalized web address.
  • Simple expandability means you can add storage capacity by simply connecting more or larger external USB drives.
  • Device-to-device replication for data protection allows you to define a job to copy and/or synchronize files to and from the connected USB drives or any other shared storage on your network. Iomega makes it easy with one-touch copying with the QuikTransfer button on the front of the iConnect device.
  • Print Serving with intelligent print sharing capability for up to two USB printers.
  • Time Machine support allows Apple users to easily backup any Mac computers running OS X (10.5 or later) using Time Machine.
  • UPnP™ DLNA Certified AV Media Server provides the ability to stream photos, audio content and videos to a variety of media devices, such as game consoles (Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3), audio bridges, iTunes players, networked digital picture frames, Iomega ScreenPlay™ products and more.
  • Photo slideshow capabilities with an integrated utility based on the Cooliris technology for quick browsing of pictures stored on the connected USB drives.
  • Torrent download manager allows the iConnect device to manage peer-to-peer file transfers without the need of a dedicated PC.
  • Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) provides no touch, automatic transfer of photos from digital cameras via one of the four USB ports on the iConnect device. 
The Iomega iConnect Wireless Data Station will be released worldwide later this month and will retail for $99.99 with a three-year warranty.
