Planex BitTorrent router

The Japanese division of Planex has released the tall and thin MZK-04G, an ideal router for users who regularly download gigabytes of data at a time. Critical to this are two features: a pair of USB ports are used to add external hard drives, and the router itself is preloaded with a BitTorrent client, enabling it to download files overnight without keeping a computer on. There are four gigabit Ethernet ports, and the wireless side supports similar speeds, transmitting at up to 997Mbps. The 04G is currently being sold in Japan at an "open" price; Planex does sell products in the United States, but the new router does not appear to have arrived yet. [via Akihabara News]
