VAIO HS1 Home Server Lands Quietly at SonyStyle.com

Without any announcement or fanfare, SonyStyle.com added a new family member to the VAIO line up – VGF-HS1 Home Server first introduced in Japan, then promised to be released in Europe. Its round shape will remind you about VAIO TP series PC, though the server is just a tad slimmer.

Here is what it does:

Features: 1TB (7200rpm) hard drive (500GB x 2), 3 USB ports, gigabit Ethernet, one-touch transfer of files, stream digital multimedia to DNLA compliant devices, automatic file backup.

Enjoy peace of mind and keep all your photos, music and home videos backed up into a single, easy-to-access location with the VGF-HS1 VAIO® home server. Boasting a massive 1TB hard drive, there’s plenty of room to store virtually your entire library of digital media. Transfer your photos and videos from your compatible digital camera and camcorder with one-touch ease or store and access your files from any PC on your home network. You can also stream your photos, music and videos to DLNA compliant devices, such as your compatible HDTV and PLAYSTATION®3 gaming console (router required, not included). There’s even an automatic file backup feature that keeps your digital media secure.

Below is a stack of VAIO TP series, VAIO Digital Tuner and VAIO Home Server (sweet set up!)

    yes, good news, thanks. :-)
    It’s a pity that all Vaio is not sold with a GNU/Linux.
    The most part are not completly compatible with the kernel (webcam, FN control, etc…).
    It is really bad, because Sony has means to impose linux as a new standard.

    Dan,
    You must be confusing this Server with VAIO TP1 series PC. The server does not contain any RAM or blue-ray player.

    This is a storage unit so whatever you throw at it will be fine. It will depend on your streamer to play those, as long as it is DLNA compliant, it will see the VAIO server in your network.
