QNAP QGenie can be used as a wireless NAS with advanced backup functions for both Android and iOS devices, powerbank, wireless access point or "a high-performance portable SSD for extremely fast file transfer of up to 120MB/s read and 40MB/s write speeds" when connected to a Mac or a PC via USB 3.0. These are its highlights:

  • Processor: MIPS 24KEc 600MHz
  • Memory/Storage: 64 MB RAM, 16 MB ROM; 32 GB SSD, SD card support
  • Connectivity: 1XUSB 3.0, 1XLAN, WiFi 802.11n

This useful accessory also features a small OLED display to show its status and is fully compatible with a wide range of Windows, Mac OS X, iOS and Android devices. It seems like QGenie will hit the stores in mid-August for $129 USD, although the press release claims it is already available for purchase.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
