ASUS today introduced the ASUS WL-HDD wireless hard drive box, the
one-of-a-kind solution that brings data storage, file sharing and wireless
connection into one single device. This unique innovation enables up to 4 users
to save and share data wirelessly at high-speed, 54Mbps data transfer. At a
nimble 0.2kg, it is a great complement to notebooks and handhelds on business
trips.

The WL-HDD is the perfect device to complete your wireless network. It is
similar to a public folder in a conventional LAN but without the hassle of
connecting cables and the messy tangling wires. The WL-HDD leveraged the
advanced 802.11g wireless standard to support large data bandwidth at 54Mbps,
making this all-new ASUS solution ideal for sharing files. It is also backwards
compatible with 802.11b.

The WL-HDD is the winner of Japan’s G-Mark, which is a prestigious validation
given every year to the products that have achieved the highest standards in
industrial design. This is a testimony to ASUS’ efforts in creating solutions
that are a pleasure to look at and a real joy to use.

“This latest ASUS offering embodies the ASUS spirit of taking things one step
further,” said Hektor Tung, Director of ASUS Wireless Business. “When others are
still developing traditional wireless devices such as APs, client adaptors and
routers, ASUS took the initiative to introduce an exclusive product that packs
file sharing, data storage and wireless Internet in to a lightweight and compact
design.”

To ensure proper data sharing, the WL-HDD adopted a hard drive monitoring
mechanism. It pre-scans the hard drive before operation to detect for and report
back any malfunctions. Furthermore, to enjoy the highest performance available,
users can conduct utility upgrade both wired and wirelessly.

An Access Point (AP) is lacking? No worries, the WL-HDD can act as the AP for
the wireless LAN as well, connecting multiple devices to the Internet while
sharing files wirelessly at the simultaneously. With the WL-HDD, it’s the same
as having a portable hotspot, meaning users can share Internet connection with
friends and coworkers even when only one network line is available.

The WL-HDD comes with several convenient features:
-Incorporating a convenient feature for file storage, the WL-HDD automatically
copies files from USB flash disks the moment they are connected.
-Implement this device in your wireless network by following a simple
step-by-step setup wizard.
-Real-time clock: No need to reset the clock when you unplug the WL-HDD.
-Two antennas for optimal reception: One internal Inverted-F PCB antenna and
another external moveable dipole antenna.
