LG enters NAS with dual drives, DVD sharing

LG N2R1 network-attached storage

LG today opted to launch its own network-attached drive in the N2R1. The box is tailored to media sharing and, besides acting as general storage, can automatically share up to two SATA hard drives to any DLNA-aware devices (like the PS3) or to iTunes clients. A rare addition is a DVD burner that can be used to play or write optical discs for ultraportable notebooks or others that don't have a free drive.

Ethernet and 802.11g Wi-Fi are both onboard to provide more choice for accessing the network, and LG stresses platform independence that gives the N2R1 support on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. A USB port and a card reader allow for extra storage.

The NAS array ships early in the fall and will cost $299 for a 1TB version or $399 for 2TB.
