Icy Box IB-NAS4220-B Network Attached Storage – does more than networked file storage

James Allan Brady - Apr 2, 2008

Not only does this Icy Box NAS box hold a couple of SATA HDDS, any capacity, and share it all on the network, but it does so much more. For starters, you can set up the two drives to run in RAID 0 or 1, Span, or JBOD configurations.

Then there is a Gigabit NIC built in, one touch backup, and a quiet, cool, and low power case, and that’s just the end of the more boring features. It also has 2 USB ports built in that will allow you to connect and share other external storage devices and/or printers all with ease.

It can run 7 different kinds of servers including the following: Samba, NFS, DHCP, UPnP-AV, Print Server, and iTunes server, you also get 30 day trials of Twonky Media’s Multimedia Server. My personal favorite feature, it has an integrated BitTorrent client. Now all I have to do is get myself a one of these and a couple of SpinPoint F1 1TB drives from Samsung and I’ll be set to go. This particular NAS on Google Products only returned two results, one was $106, the other $117, so for what it does its pretty fairly priced too.
