Over the past few years we have looked at several Tagan power supplies such as the TurboJet 1100W and BZ 900W. However, their product selection is no longer limited to power supplies and they now produce several different desktop cases as well as a growing selection of storage devices. These storage products are part of their Icy Box family, which consists of 2.5" and 3.5" hard drive enclosures as well as NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices. One of these products is the Tagan Icy Box IB-NAS4220-B, which is a two-drive SATA NAS with support for RAID 0/1/JBOD. What makes this device more interesting to us is that it runs Linux and Tagan is more than happy to let its customers modify the unit and write their own software.

Features:

- Web-based Browser Configuration
- Supports Two 3.5" SATA HDDs
- 2 x USB Client Interfaces For Printers, USB Drives
- One-Touch Back-Up
- Support For Bit Torrent Client
- NFS Server
- FTP Server
- DHCP Support
- Print Server
- iTunes DAAP Support
- Low Power Consumption
- Designed For Home & Office Networks

The Tagan Icy Box NAS4220 had arrived in a cardboard box almost twice the size of the NAS enclosure itself. To protect the enclosure are foam blocks at both ends. While this is part of the Icy Box family, there is nothing on the package to actually resemble an "icy box", but in fact, the packaging is colored in black and hot pink. In addition to the two-drive NAS there is the AC power adapter, HDD mounting screws, RJ-45 network cable, user's manual, and a utility CD. The utility CD is not necessary, as everything for this network device can be setup from a web browser.
