SMART AWARDS 2013 / NETWORKING

We Pick The Best Networking Products Of 2012

By The SmartHouse Team | Monday | 28/11/2011

Content has gone wireless in 2011. Tablets and docking stations are letting users take media with them and the new era of storage is freeing this video and music from its confining chains. Routers are becoming more versatile and external hard drives are now about streaming: not just storing.

Best Storage Drive
Western Digital My Book World Edition II

Doubling as a media server and an intelligent PC back-up, this network-attaching device will stream HD video around a home network while mirroring your computer hard-drive onto multiple disks thrown together in RAID configuration. Whether you're looking for a high-performance scratch-disk for video editing or just a high-capacity drive for streaming all of your movies across your home, this My Book is one of the most versatile storage systems around.

Best Wireless Router
Cisco E4200
$269.95 | www.cisco.com

Sitting at the helm of Cisco's home office router list, the E4200 brings in advanced networking and performance to suit tech savvy crowd and greenhorns alike. It's lightning fast over the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands alike (without any fiddly antennae), run perfectly in the middle of a network-attached storage system, and is easily customisable over the net or through Cisco Connect. The versatility is there for all home networking applications, with the grunt and functionality for running an efficient home office, and let's not forget the sex-appeal of its new metal and matte design that's more centrepiece than backdrop hardware.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
