The storage controller supports RAID 0 and RAID 1 modes. Basic DLNA support that makes it friendly with other consumer electonics devices at home. With its gigabit Ethernet interface, it supports transfer speeds of around 40 MB/s. The NAS is also DTCP-IP compliant that lets you store DTCP-IP copyrighted content. It measures 86 (W) x 127 (H) x 204 (D) mm. A USB 2.0 port provides for further expansion of storage by connecting USB mass storage devices (flash drives, external HDDs, etc).
