Netgear is certainly not new to the Network Attached Storage space. The company has been producing NAS drives for businesses and professionals for years, and they have actually garnered quite the name for themselves all the while. But for whatever reason, the outfit has been hesitant to dabble in the consumer NAS arena...until now.Today, Netgear is finally taking the leap of faith that we've all been waiting for by launching the Stora. Aimed to compete with offerings by Seagate, QNAP, Western Digital, Hitachi and loads of other HDD firms, this sleek black box helps consumers keep all of their media... Read more...
We're not quite sure when it happened, but media streaming has taken off in a big way. Just about every consumer electronics company with any experience in the HD/Wi-Fi/routing businesses has decided to jump in, with Netgear being no different.

If you haven't heard of "Internet throttling" by now, you will soon in all likelihood. Major cable-based ISPs are considering (if not implementing) hard bandwidth caps on their users each month, which is really putting devout Netflix streamers and Hulu watchers in a bind. After all, if you get all of your TV/entertainment from the web, it doesn't take long to suck down an incredible amount of bits and bytes.While Netgear certainly can't make those guys have a change of heart, it can help users stuck behind those walls keep tabs on how much they've used.
