I last took a look at an LG NAS when I tested the N1T1 1 TB Super Multi NAS, which received a good but not great review. The LG SuperMulti-NAS N2A2 is a big step up, with faster performance, a vastly improved interface, and two USB ports for additional storage, backup, or printer sharing. The N2A2 is a versatile, flexible device that can multi-task as a media server, iTunes server, FTP, or printer server. With media and file sharing, backup, and other capabilities, the N2A2 is perfect for a digitally dependent family (or a small business with light-duty needs). Priced online for around $259 for 2 TB, it's a great deal. LG also offers the same features in a 1 TB model, priced at $150. Many newer NASes, such as Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive, Cloud Edition and Pogoplug, target consumers by incorporating cloud services to remotely access files and media content on the NAS from anywhere. The N2A2, on the other hand, uses Dynamic DNS to accomplish remote access. It's just as effective as many of the cloud offerings, though novice users may prefer the ultra user-friendly Iomega and Pogoplug cloud services.
Over the past few years we've reviewed a handful of NAS (Network Attached Storage) products and while most of them have been very impressive, they all shared one common pitfall: they were extremely pricey. So expensive in fact, that they're little more than a pipe dream for the average user. For example, about two years ago we reviewed the powerful Synology Disk Station DS-409+ which cost a cool $600 without any hard drives installed. Later on, the QNAP TS-809 Pro surfaced on our radar with a starting price of $1,700, which is considerably more than most spend on their primary PC. More recently we checked out the Synology Disk Station DS410j, which is a value oriented 4-bay NAS device, but it was still $370 and we estimated at the time that adding four 1TB hard drives could balloon the total cost to $700. The alternative to buying an expensive NAS device is to build a budget PC or acquire one second hand to use as a network file server. While this can be a cheaper and often more powerful route, it's not without its drawbacks such as higher power consumption, less out of the box functionality and the need for a monitor to make changes.
