Planex BitTorrent NAS gets more room for downloads

External storage, particularly with network connectivity, is getting cheaper and cheaper, and manufacturers are obviously looking around for value-added features that make their own products stand out in the crowd.  Planex caught some headlines last year with a 500GB NAS that not only supported a variety of media streaming and remote access standards but also had in-built BitTorrent support.


Well, obviously 500GB wasn't enough for some people's voracious downloading, and so Planex is bringing out a 750GB version.  TCP/IP, HTTP, SMB, FTP, DHCP, UPnP and NTP protocols are all supported, and there are two USB 2.0 ports for plugging in supplementary external hard-drives or hosting USB printers.  Gigabit ethernet makes transfers nice and snappy, and there's an easy-to-use built-in webserver to host your own site.

No word on price or availability yet.
