Netgear unveils faster ReadyNAS Ultra Plus media servers

updated 01:10 pm EDT, Fri November 5, 2010

Series set to arrive in November

Netgear has expanded its ReadyNAS line of home media servers, with the introduction of the Ultra 2 and Ultra Plus series. The Ultra Plus lineup is claimed to deliver 30 percent faster performance when compared to the Ultra series. The servers support TiVo DVR integration, along with Orb transcoding for various screen sizes and remote streaming to mobile devices.

Many of Netgear's products, including the Ultra Plus offerings and N600 router, have received official DLNA certification. Users can take advantage of Skifta, which shifts movies or music onto any DLNA-certified device.

The Ultra Plus devices will ship in November, with the initial offerings limited to diskless servers. A two-bay model carries a price of $450, while the four-bay server commands $700. Customers can also purchase a six-bay model for $1000.

Aside from the new Plus series, the company has introduced a two-bay version of the existing Ultra server. The device is sold diskless for $400, while the 2TB option costs $550 and the 4TB edition can be purchased for $700. All of the two-bay Plus servers also ship in November.
