Iomega has presented 500GB and 1TB Home Media Network Hard Drives, priced at $159.99 and $229.99, respectively. More details over here.
With EMC's acclaimed LifeLine(TM) software, in three simple steps users can configure up to one terabyte* of network storage for backing up all of their files as well as streaming music, photos, video and other multimedia files between computers, networked televisions, popular game consoles and other under-utilized digital home entertainment devices.
Iomega will be showing the new Home Media Network Hard Drive at the MacWorld tradeshow in San Francisco, January 6-9, 2009, and at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 8-11, 2009.
Starting at just $159.99, the Home Media Network Hard Drive is available as a 500GB or a 1TB single-drive device. Consumers with multiple computers can use the Home Media Network Hard Drive to centralize their computer storage as well as access files on everything from a laptop to a big screen TV to a Microsoft Xbox 360 or a Sony PlayStation 3. Sharing and streaming multimedia files to a home entertainment system creates lots of enjoyment for the whole family, and the 1TB Home Media Network Hard Drive can store plenty of entertainment - more than 4 million photos, 18,500 hours of music, or 1500 hours of video.**
"Iomega's new Home Media Network Hard Drive is a powerful network storage device that's so straightforward that even a novice can be backing up multiple computers and streaming media around their home in less than five minutes," said Jonathan Huberman, president of Iomega and the Consumer and Small Business Products Division of EMC. "The Home Media Network Drive does the serious work of backing up and protecting digital files, but it also does the fun things like streaming photos and videos to game consoles, digital picture frames and networked TVs, as well as automatically feeding music into iTunes(R) for easy playback - all for little more than the cost of a USB direct-attached desktop hard drive with comparable storage capacity."
