QMW Square One Upgrade

Quad Micro Works on Thursday introduced a major overhaul to its Square One home server. Alongside increases in storage to 320GB and 500GB for its larger models, the compact network device also gains 802.11g Wi-Fi and can serve as a wireless router of its own. Software has also been upgraded, says the company. A BitTorrent client is now in place that can download and store the peer-based files on its own, even when other PCs are turned off. Owners will also have free access to an Internet TV service from Casgle that can automatically queue and download TV shows offered by CNN and other networks. More serious owners can also host extra servers for e-mail, FTP, and a handful of new services.

The revamped model also includes better expansion through eSATA and three USB ports, gigabit Ethernet ports, and a better processor with more memory to help cope with especially heavy network traffic.

The firm has declined to say whether prices would change from the $380 listed for the first-generation 320GB version, but indicates that both the 320GB and 500GB models sould reach the marketplace by the end of spring.
