Linksys announced three new products at the Pepcom event tonight.
Their appropriately monikored NAS200 has space for two 3.5″ SATA HDD’s. It supports RAID level 0 and 1 across the two drives, depending on your desire for speed or safe data storage, respectively. One feature that is a bit out of the norm is the ability of the unit to initiate a download, and if the unit is powered down it will continue the transfer until it is complete. It also supports scheduled or one touch backups. Available Q1 07 for $180.
The next product is the WRT330N Gaming Router. It is a draft 802.11n wireless device that can prioritize gaming packets and has 4 gigabit ethernet ports. The router has the usual amenities: WPA2, WPA and WEP security, DHCP server capability and VPN pass through. It supports multiple devices, such as your gaming PC and gaming consoles themselves. If nothing else it has a cool design. Price will be about $200.
Their WPSM54G print server has added the ability to support today’s multifunction printers. While a print server is useful for offloading some work from your PC, be sure the printer you have/want is listed as a supported model. Available now for $120.
