LG’s Awesome New N2C Hard Drive
LG’s new 2 terabyte NAS (network-attached-storage), the N2C, supports an external ODD (Optical Disc Drive), letting users access CD/DVD or Blu-ray videos directly from the network, and allows users to share content to any number of connected devices.
The N2C also comes with a peer2peer program, iTunes Server, DLNA and special software that gives users remote access to all data from any PC or mobile phone. Users will also be able to use it as a remote security device giving access to live video taken from any USB Web cam.
Data transfer rates are speedy at 400MHz and the processor is a Marvell 88F6192 800MHz. The interface is a SATA II, and the HDD comes with Linux Kernal 2.6, embedded.
Users will be happy to know that this device is also supported by Windows 2000, Windows XP, Win Server 2003, Mac OS 10.3 and later, Linux (Redhat 9, Ubuntu, Suse). The device will soon be available in Korean for 500,000 WON.
If you’re looking for a next-generation external hard drive, this would definitely be the one to get! Although users get a standard one year warranty, I have had nothing but good experiences from LG, and would recommend using them.
