Share Your Life With Iomega

"Connect the Iomega iConnect device to your router in either a wired or wireless configuration*, and it’s as easy as plugging external USB drives or USB Flash drives (any brand) into any of the four USB ports on the Iomega iConnect device, making the drives automatically connected to and accessible from any computer on your network or remotely via the web."

In all honesty, the iConnect is nothing new. It acts as a NAS which you connect USB hard drives to, making your files available on your network, or through the web. Similar devices that come to mind are Windows Home Servers and the Pogoplug, though this one has a slightly lower price at $129. The one thing I am curious about, which rarely gets promoted with most NAS based devices is what its actual data throughput is like. Sure, it has a gigabit port, but I have come across many a NAS with gigabit ports which provide disappointing performance. Having over a terabyte of data, moving things around, or even streaming high bit-rate video is definitely a concern.
