If you have a network in the home or office being able to share USB devices like scanners, printers, and webcams can save lots of money and install hassles. The catch is that some network devices cost a lot more than other devices lacking integrated network capability.
Addonics has unveiled a new network attached USB adapter than lets anyone connect USB devices to their network and have them accessible to any computer that has network connectivity. The adapter sells for about $50.
The adapter works with all sorts of USB devices including webcams, speakers, external storage, optical drives, and any other USB device. The adapter has a gigabit network connection and can transfer data at up to 30MB/s.
