Editors Note: A photo is included with this press release.

Leading networking and storage vendor, NETGEAR, has today announced a significant drop in price for its line of ReadyNAS storage products to provide savings to consumers and capture a larger share of the UK storage market.

The announcement came as part of NETGEAR's wider initiative to promote the importance of storage as well as enable NETGEAR's partners to sell the products more easily in the tough economic climate.

Mark Power, Managing Director, NETGEAR UK, commented: "We recognise that due to the tough economic climate, consumers and businesses have less money to spend and have to justify every purchase. However, they also realise storing, sharing and protecting data in a reliable and secure manner is an integral part of their working and personal lives. This fact combined with the feedback from our partners in the Channel, meant that it made sense to change the pricing of our storage products to reflect the market conditions."

The ReadyNAS range includes the ReadyNAS Duo aimed at the home user and the ReadyNAS NV+ and ReadyNAS Pro units which cater for business users. Key features allow users to back-up their data files, centrally store confidential data, access content from the Internet and support music, picture and video players.

The price-drop is effective immediately but will filter through to NETGEAR resellers and ultimately consumers, at different times nationwide.
