September 2008's best new products revealed

8 innovative gadgets and tech toys to enjoy

September 2008 has proven to be a bumper month for exciting new gadgets, with new cameras, TVs, NAS drives, and a laptop from Samsung that has critics drooling.

LG Network Attached Storage unit

LG is targeting home and small-office/home-office (SOHO) users with a network-attached storage (NAS) server. Among the main features of the N4B1, which will go on sale in major markets from December, is the ability to automatically download data from USB storage devices, memory cards, digital still cameras, DVDs, Blu-ray Discs or any other storage media that is connected to it.

Version management software helps keep track of the files it has already downloaded so only new ones are pulled into and cataloged in its disc storage. When discs are ripped they become virtual discs that appear to all users on the local network and mean data can be shared between many users. The N4B1 will also automatically burn little-used files onto Blu-ray Discs and can accommodate up to 4 drives and 4TB of data. Pricing has not yet been decided.
