6 Times Faster Performance –
Extra Security with NDAS Technology

August 14, 2007, Woodstock, IL, — Newer Technology, Inc. (NewerTech), a leading developer of PC, Macintosh and iPod
performance upgrades and accessories, today announced the newest addition to
its award-winning storage line, the miniStack NAS Network Attached Storage
solution for storing and sharing music, videos, photos, and files at home or
at the office. miniStack NAS easily connects to computers via Ethernet or
USB 2.0 ports for Plug & Play storage and sharing of up to 750GB between up
to 20 Windows or Mac users.

Server for the Digital Lifestyle

Based on the award-winning miniStack, winner of Macworld Magazine “Top
Product,” MacAddict Magazine “Editor’s Choice,” and
“Accessory of the Year” Awards, miniStack NAS addresses the growing trend of
computers as the hub of home entertainment by offering a shared local drive
for wired or wireless networked computers for drag-and-drop sharing and
storage. It is the ideal server for the digital lifestyle because it offers
storage capacities up to 750GB, the ability to stream multimedia and HD
files to UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) compatible media players, and easy
set-up by eliminating complicated network TCP/IP configurations. Adding
the NewerTech miniStack NAS into a home or business network is a simple
matter of installing the included software driver onto each computer that
will share the miniStack NAS drive and connecting miniStack NAS to the
network via the included Ethernet cable.

6 Times Faster Performance

miniStack NAS utilizes advanced network storage technology to enable direct
storage and access by up to 20 users simultaneously with up to 6 times
faster performance than older PC file sharing-based technologies. With both
USB 2.0 and Ethernet connections, miniStack NAS offers the flexibility to be
used either on the network or as a personal external high-speed storage

NDAS Technology for Extra Security

miniStack NAS keeps sensitive data safe and secure with user-selectable
levels of read/write privileges, from no access, read only, or full access.
Also, because miniStack NAS uses Network Direct Attached Storage (NDAS)
technology, which eliminates the need for TCP/IP settings, miniStack NAS is
safe from external hackers.
