Share USB Disks on your Network-Wirelessly
The LaPlug lets you turn any USB hard drive into a network storage device, sharing its files wireless throughout your home. Simply connect the LaPlug to your network, then connect the drive to the LaPlug. Instantly you have a low-cost way to make files stored on your USB hard drives more accessible than ever. For ultimate convenience, you can even connect a USB printer* to the LaPlug, making it wirelessly available to all computers on your network.
Accessibility at Home and on the Road
Not only does the LaPlug make your USB hard drives accessible throughout your home, it even supports remote access. Instead of emailing large files between friends, just give them access to the LaPlug-all they need is Internet access. You can even set up a custom web address, so accessing your LaPlug is as easy as typing in a URL.
It's easy to access USB drives connected to the LaPlug from any networked equipment that's UPnP™/DLNA® certified (like your PlayStation®3, LaCinema Classic HD, or Xbox 360®). If you have movies on a USB key, just connect it to the LaPlug, then play the movie using the multimedia device on your network. Instantly you're watching your movie from the comfort of the living room, even if the LaPlug is located in another part of the house. Put music files on the USB drive, and you also stream music to computers running iTunes® on your network.
Centralize Backup for Convenience and Security
The LaPlug offers a convenient way to automatically back up all your family's computers onto a central location. You can use the intuitive bundled backup software or Time Machine. Either way, simply configure automatic backups once, then rest easy knowing your precious data is secure. Since the LaPlug supports Wi-Fi, you don't even need to connect the computer to the LaPlug in order to initiate backups.
