As of July 1, 2013, the NT2 LAN has been discontinued and this model is no longer being manufactured, sold or maintained.

The NT2 LAN was a dual-bay network drive with built-in UPnP-AV media server designed for two 3.5" hard disk drives. It came with a web based file browser and media player to manage and playback media files.

There is no new version available for this particular model. As an alternative, please consider the MyCloud Duo, which is based on a new and more advanced operating system. It's also designed to house two 3.5" hard disk drives and it comes with a web based file browser and many more web applications.




The ultra compact design of the NT2 makes this dual-bay network storage enclosure one of the smallest in the market, yet it still packs a punch when it comes to flexibility and performance. With its low power consumption and the built-in UPnP-AV media server, this is the ideal solution to house all your media files and at the same time make them available day and night to your UPnP clients throughout your home.
