Freecom Storage Gateway LAN 500GB review

NAS drive and wireless router in one - as useful as it sounds?

Freecom Storage Gateway LAN

Our Verdict

A thoughtfully made product, but we're not sure it justifies its price


  • Integrated wireless router
  • Good feature set


  • Steep price

This rather unique NAS drive comes complete with a built-in wireless router, making it a good option if you don't have a wireless router already.

This made it a very good buy a year or so ago but, now that most of us have routers already, the price is a little steep.

Even so, with UPnP media streaming, web access and printer sharing, there's a lot to like.
