Asustek offers Wi-Fi case for hard drives

Taiwanese hardware maker Asustek Computer will launch a hard-drive case that can be accessed over high-speed 802.11g wireless networks, the company announced at CeBIT.

Asustek's WL-HDD hard-drive case holds a 2.5-inch hard-disc drive and supports the Ultra DMA/100 interface. The hard drive can be accessed wirelessly by the case's integrated dual-mode 802.11b/g interface, which offers a maximum bandwidth of 54Mbps. The case also has two 10/100 Ethernet ports.

The WL-HDD has a web-based management interface that allows users to control access to the disc-drive. Files can be shared freely or limited to users with a password. Users can also limit access to alter files by permitting only read-access to the files on the disc.

The WL-HDD will be available worldwide in May and will cost around $150.
