Affordable Network Attached Storage

I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. Fry’s has the Tritton Technologies Simple NAS (TRI-NSS001) on sale for $99 with a $30 mail-in rebate. That’s $100 before rebate, folks … for a box that you can populate with a drive of any size … and access over your network … SMB (i.e. Windows) or FTP!

And, yes, has it, too. Same price, same rebate.

  1. You set up the FTP accounts, give them passwords and specify which directories each can access. Nothing special — the FTP channel isn’t encrypted nor is there a provision for SFTP. Same holds true for the SMB access, it’s userid and password protected.

  2. Any special security using it for FTP, or is it ‘use at your own risk?’ For the money, it seems like the ideal place for the 2nd HD I have in my main machine (200 g/byte.) Would make it much more useful for sharing and backup.
