HP and Microsoft have decided to delay shipment of the first product to use Microsoft's Windows Home Server operating system.
An HP spokesperson today said that the company and its partner Microsoft had decided to rework the MSS's software to make it more "user-friendly" to general consumers.
Iomega today announced its low-priced Home Network Hard Drive product line.
The single-drive NASes come in 320GB, 360GB and 500GB capacities and connect via a 10/100 Ethernet port. All versions can also function as a directly-attached external USB 2.0 drive.
Other features include a built-in XBox 360 media server and two client licenses for EMC Retrospect HD backup software.
The 320GB and 500 GB models are available now at MSRP's of $149 and $199, respectively. Note that the 320 GB model is available only direct from Iomega. The 360GB model is expected to be available in late September for $149.
Newer Technology today announced its miniStack NAS product line.
The miniStack NAS can support up to 20 simultaneous users, includes a built-in UPnP AV media server and can also be used as an external USB hard drive.
The products are based on Ximeta's NDAS technology, which does not use TCP/IP and requires an application to be run on each NAS client. Clients are available for Windows ME, XP, 2000 and Vista and Mac OS 8.6 and up.
miniStack NAS is available in seven models with capacities from 80GB to 750GB and priced starting at $119.99 MSRP. A 0GB Add Your Own Drive kit is also available for $79.99 MSRP.
