Netgear Centria announced
Netgear is famous for their collection of networking products, and this time around, we have what Netgear has dubbed the Netgear Centria, where it has been slated to be an all powerful, all-in-one automatic backup/media server that also wears another hat by being a high-speed WiFi router, now how about that?Just to make sure that everyone is on the same page, the Netgear Centria is a dual band high-performance router that has the added convenience of automatic data backup for both PCs and Macs.
This particular backup capability that is found in the Centria router is definitely something that provides it with an edge over the rest of the competition, not to mention giving you that added peace of mind since you know that barring any mishaps, your precious data will remained backed up at all times.
Assuming your Mac or PC is lost or experiences some sort of nasty downtime, you are still able to continue living life normally, accessing all of the backed up data from the Centria via a different computer. Routers do seem to be the ideal place where one can enjoy data backup as they remain on most of the times, and are also the central point of connection for all computers in the home.
Not only that, if you prefer, you can always use the Netgear Centria as a storage repository for photos, media and documents that might just consume way too much space on your computer. The Centria will rely on an internal SATA drive and/or external USB drives in order to have it perform all of its storage and backup needs.
The Centria, as mentioned earlier, also doubles up as a high-performance 900 Mbps (450+450 Mbps) Dual Band WiFi router so you need not worry about enjoying fast, smooth streaming and gaming. You can pick up the Netgear Centria WNDR4700 for $229.99 a pop, while the Netgear Centria WNDR4720 that boasts of an internal 2TB hard drive will be more expensive at $349.99.
