PC World has put the 2TB version of the IOMEGA Home Media Network Cloud Edition hard drive for a mere £80 (with an instore price of £150) with the first devices expected to be shipped on 7 September.
Oddly enough, the 1TB version costs £110 which leaves us to believe that it could well be a misprice. You won't be able to add another hard drive for redundancy but interestingly enough, you can sync it with Amazon S3 or Mozy for backup.
The product comes with a Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports and is compatible with a slew of operating systems including Linux.
Going beyond being a mere external hard drive, It also offers a built-in UPnP DLNA-certified AV media server as well as an iTunes server.
Note that you won’t be able to access the drive simply by connecting a USB cable. You will need to go through a switch or a router. You can however connect either a peripheral or another storage device to it via USB.
