by Pedro Hernandez on July 19, 2010 · 0 comments

Seagate today launched a new network attached storage (NAS) device for home networks called GoFlex Home, which resembles the company’s GoFlex external hard drive sitting atop a dock.

Meant to plug into a wireless router, GoFlex Home — available in 1.5 TB and 2 TB capacities — provides convenient, centralized backup and file sharing for up to three Windows PCs and/or Macs. And yes, it works with the latter’s Time Machine incremental backup capabilities. To cover all of its bases, the networked drive ships with backup software for both OS X and Windows. It also sports DLNA support for media streaming to compatible devices and Internet file sharing for access to your data when you’re away from home.

In case you’re wondering, it connects via Gigabit Ethernet port for faster file transfers over a wired network. Talking about speed being of the essence, buyers should be up and running in mere “minutes” according to the company.

Prices are $159.99 for the 1.5 TB version and $229.99 for the 2 TB model. Available now. If you want to try your luck, Seagate is hosting a giveaway for three GoFlex Homes.
