Plextor Enters Network Attached Storage Market; External Hard Disk Drive Offers Print Server, FTP, Back-up, and Security Functions.

FREMONT, Calif. -- Plextor(R) Corp., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media equipment, 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(R) Windows(R) and Apple(R) Macintosh(R) 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.

"As a leader in the data storage market, Plextor's mission is to help users secure and make the most of their valuable data," said Pete Schwartz, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "Plextor has now expanded its product lineup to include professional network hard disk drives. This product line extension complements our award-winning family of optical disk drives and gives our customers more choices for data storage applications."
