Belkin Home Base 4-Port Wireless USB Hub / NAS Adapter / DLNA Server


Belkin Home Base

Oh, my…. Belkin has stepped up to the plate with a seriously heavy handed hitter. The company is introducing the most advanced 4-port wireless USB hub we’ve seen to date. The $129.99 Belkin Home Base offers 1Ghz of processing power, 802.11n / Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, network access to USB storage / printers / cameras / SD webcams, Flickr / Picasa photo sharing, automatic Mac OS X / Windows PC backups, and DLNA / UPnP support for digital media adapters and game consoles like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. With these attributes and price point, there’s little doubt the Belkin Home Base is going to be a hot seller — once people figure out exactly what it does.

Print, Share, and Back Up Files Wirelessly with Belkin Home Base

(Compton, CA) – September 15, 2009 – Belkin Home Base lets anyone within an existing wireless network print to a single, shared printer from anywhere in the home. Attach an external hard drive to one of Home Base’s four USB ports to save and share music, pictures, and videos with your family.

Home Base has wireless built in, so the wired port is an option if you do not want to go wirelessly. It will automatically back up each connected computer’s files periodically to a connected external hard drive, so you don’t have to worry about sudden data loss. With the automatic sharing feature, Home Base can automatically upload your new photos to a Flickr or Picasa account. With popular gaming consoles like PS3™ or Xbox 360®, Home Base lets you wirelessly access media files stored on an attached hard drive.
