Plextor today announced the PX-EH family of Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices. Available in two capacities -- 250GB and 400GB -- the external hard disk drives (HDD) are designed to allow multiple users to share data with fast performance assured by a high-speed processor and UltraDMA 133 HDD technology.

The Plextor PX-EH series of NAS devices are designed for professionals and small businesses that require extra data storage capacity and easy backup capability. In addition to providing instantly accessible shared storage across the network, the devices include a print server that can share a USB-connected printer. Other built-in functions include an automated backup scheduler, administrative security, and the ability to configure the device as a dedicated FTP server. Throughput for FTP transfers is a fast 94.5 Mbps, compared to 60-85 Mbps for comparable products.

The Plextor PX-EH Network Attached Storage devices are compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh operating systems. Users enjoy silent operation thanks to the heat-releasing aluminum case and convection cooling design, which eliminates the need for a noisy fan. Set up is easy for customers with a DHCP server -- just connect to the network and power up the unit.

The Plextor PX-EH Network Attached Storage device family is shipping to distributors in North and South America on March 1st. The PX-EH25, with 250GB capacity, has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $299.00 USD. The PX-EH40L, with 400GB capacity, has a MSRP of $449.00 USD. All retail packages include two-year full warranty and unlimited toll-free technical support.
