Well-known motherboard and SSF barebone manufacturer Shuttle has just launched a new network-attached unit for the home user. The new device is part of Shuttle’s Omninas product line and comes in a very nice aluminum housing.
The official denomination is Omninas KD20 and the aluminum body will give it sturdiness and good looks and, more importantly, much better heat dissipation
This is a 2-bay NAS unit that has support for maximum two 4TB 3.5” hard disk drives
On the connectivity side, the Omninas KD20 comes with a USB 3.0
port for quickly connecting devices that are not part of the network, Gigabit LAN and two USB 2.0 ports.
Some of the useful features are the SD card reader and the copy button than will automatically backup
the contents of your card to the NAS unit, and the hot swap button to allow the user to quickly change the hard drives inside in case of a failure.
There is no information available on pricing yet, but the KD20 is a well-designed device with support for up to 8TB of storage
