Designed for small office-home office (SoHo) user, LG's NAS device combines a secure storage option for large amounts of data with the capability to read and write in high definition. LG's full line of information technology (IT) products is on display at the 2009 International CES (Booth #8214, Central Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center).

"LG's NAS device is the perfect complement to our award-winning optical disc drive line as it not only provides data security but also offers large storage capacity and gives users the flexibility to read and write Blu-ray," said senior vice president, marketing and strategy, LG Electronics North America

The world's first Network Attached Storage device with a built-in Blu-ray drive (model N4B1) attaches to a network instead of PC to enable secure data storage. Its capacity can be expanded by a four-bay storage configuration to a maximum of 4TB. To facilitate easier archiving, the N4B1 automatically creates a content catalog when data is saved to the Blu-ray disc. Additionally, the management system automatically tracks what is downloaded, saving business owners and consumers' time and space by not duplicating files. Additional features include:

- Compatibility with Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems
