Our quest to find SOHO routers with built-in bandwidth management lead us to examine OvisLink's multi-functional router. We found that it does provide bandwidth management - along with a host of other interesting features - but that it isn't all we'd hoped for.
We tend to get pretty jaded with all the over-hyped me-too products that we see. But once in a while a product comes along that restores our faith in the networking industry's ability to innovate and deliver real value. Linksys' Network Storage Link for USB 2.0 Disk Drives may have an unassuming name, but once you see what this product can do, we think you'll agree that a new networking product category has been born!
We take a second look at XIMETA's inexpensive alternative for Networked storage and review the NetDisk Office. XIMETA has made some improvements in its NDAS technology, but you may still be faced with an unacceptable tradeoff in order keep more money in your wallet.
Mirra's Personal Server recently had its first major feature upgrade. We found that the new version 1.1 has some welcome feature adds and bug fixes. But it still doesn't do what you'd think a file server - personal or not - should do.
Does a product that combines 120GB of networked storage with a PPTP/IPsec VPN endpoint router for about $350 sound like a good deal? We thought it might, but Tritton's All-in-one Server Appliance (ASAP) and ioGEAR's Broadband Office Storage Server(BOSS) share what we think is a fatal flaw that should make you think at least twice before you buy.
All you need to know about how we test Networked Storage devices.
U.S. Robotics has been on an innovation tear lately. First with its 100Mbps 802.11g wireless product line, and now with a new twist on an old product category.
Ximeta's NetDisk can both serve as a USB 2.0 external drive or plug into your LAN via its 10/100 Ethernet port. But does its LAN feature make it an inexpensive NAS device? Read our review and find out.
If you've been thinking about adding a "real" file server to your LAN, but have been put off by the thought of trying to configure (and pay for) a machine with one of Microsoft's server products, then wait no more! SnapAppliance's Snap Server 1100 couldn't be easier to set up and can automatically back up all your LAN's computers too! Read our review and get the details.
