Iomega announced today that it has finally moved into the home NAS market. Although Iomega has long produced NAS storage for small businesses, it hasn't brought its technology into the home. The new Home Network Hard Drive does exactly that. The network-attached storage drive comes in 320GB, 360GB and 500GB capacities, and costs just a little more than comparably sized USB hard drives. Each drive contains a single 7,200rpm SATA-II drive with an 8MB cache. For networking, they offer a 10/100 Ethernet port, though users may also connect the drives to a single PC over USB. The drives are bundled with two EMC Retrospect HD licenses for backup.
The 320GB version is available now for $150 and the 500GB version is available now for $200. The 360GB version should be available in late September for $150.
