With that simple set up, users of the iConnect Wireless Data Station not only have incremental storage on their network to save, share and enjoy, they also enjoy such capabilities as a UPnP DLNA Certified AV Media Server that streams photos, audio content and videos to a variety of media devices; a torrent download manager for managing peer-to-peer file transfers; Time Machine support for Apple users; device-to-device replication for data protection; print serving to the network and much more.

"For less than S$150, users now have a NAS device that offers everything from remote access to torrent download capability to a built-in iTunes and media server.
