Iomega debuts Home Media Network Hard Drive

updated 01:10 pm EST, Mon January 5, 2009

Iomega Home Media NAS

Storage maker Iomega has announced the Home Media Network Hard Drive, a new external device shipping in the next few weeks. The drive is a form of network-attached storage, meant primarily for sharing music, photos and video between computers, TVs, and game consoles such as the Xbox 360. It connects to an existing router via gigabit Ethernet, and unlike similar devices, relies on a custom version of Linux to serve Mac and Linux computers as well as Windows-based ones. Users can stream media via iTunes, UPnP and DLNA formats.

The drive can additionally be treated as a simple backup drive using included software, and expanded via a USB port which supports either printers or external hard drives. 500GB and 1TB models will be available, at costs of $160 and $230; these will also come with a free subscription to the online MozyHome backup service, though holding more than 2GB costs $5 per month.
