Three ReadyNAS Duo twin-disk SATA models

HEXUS CES 2008 coverage

Netgear is serving up three ReadyNAS Duo solutions for the home in the form of:

  • ReadyNAS Duo 500GB Gigabit Desktop Network Storage (RND2150)
  • ReadyNAS Duo 750GB Gigabit Desktop Network Storage (RND2175)
  • ReadyNAS Duo 1TB Gigabit Desktop Network Storage (RND2110)

Each product holds up to two SATA hard drives and provides all the NAS functionality you've come to expect, along with gigabit connectivity. More interestingly, you can plug in a digital camera via USB and the devices will automatically transfer your images and make them available on your network. Also included is support for BitTorrent, enabling users to download digital entertainment content directly to the ReadyNAS Duo.

The ReadyNAS Duo supports Windows and Macintosh networks and uses certain Apple technologies, such as Bonjour and AFP, as well as a desktop widget for MacOS X.

No news on prices just yet but we're hopeful they'll reflect the target home audience.
