Known for compact and affordable chargers, Ugreen jumped into network-attached storage (NAS) devices in a big way Tuesday with a crowdfunding campaign for its new NASync products on

That’s where you can pledge and save 40% on items that suit home and business users alike with high-speed, huge-capacity data storage, the company said.

New Ugreen NAS products are 40% off on Kickstarter

Until now primarily know for chargers, Ugreen is launching its NASync series with 12th-generation Intel processors for both individual and business users. The Kickstarter campaign hit $2.2 million on its first day, over its $20,000 goal (with 44 days to go).

The company’s new NASync DXP2800, NASync DXP4800 and DXP4800 Plus devices are tailored for personal and home users. NASync DXP6800 Pro and NASync DXP8800 Plus, featuring 12th-gen Intel Core i5 processors, should suit business users. The biggest capacity goes up to a staggering 184TB.

“This leads to enhanced responsiveness, efficient data processing, and seamless multi-tasking, the company said. “Furthermore, the advantage of seamless multimedia processing and transcoding significantly improves the media file playback experience.”

And Ugreen designed another model, NASync DXP480T Plus, to meet the needs of creative and media professionals.

Ugreen NAS products’ Kickstarter campaign, aimed at users in the United States and Germany, features an early bird discount of 40% with prices starting at $239.99.

Dual Thunderbolt 4 ports

In addition, NASync DXP6800 Pro, DXP8800 Plus and DXP480T Plus come with dual Thunderbolt 4 ports. They can connect to a variety of storage devices for high-speed data transmission. Each port can reach data-transmission speeds up to 40Gbps.

NASync DXP6800 Pro and DXP8800 also come with dual 10GbE network ports.

As Ugreen noted:

These two high-speed 10GbE network ports can be combined to provide a total bandwidth of 20GbE, allowing for theoretical download speeds of up to 2500MB/s. Furthermore, the load between the two port links can be dynamically adjusted and balanced, enhancing the overall transmission efficiency.

DDR5 memory

Every Ugreen NASync model is equipped with an expandable 8GB DDR5 memory (two to three times faster than DDR4), Ugreen said:

For models like NASync 4800 Plus, DXP6800 Pro, DXP8800 Plus and NASync DXP480T Plus, with the capacity to expand memory up to 64GB, even the most resource-intensive software becomes manageable, and multi-tasking is more efficient than ever. Importantly, it accelerates data processing, which is particularly advantageous for tasks such as AI recognition and video transcoding.

Unlike cloud drives, Ugreen NAS products securely store substantial amounts of personal data on local devices with encryption, reducing risk of leaks, the company said. The series employs secure protocols like SSL/TLS. It uses robust SHA256 encryption, a standard in the financial and communications sectors. And the app’s built-in Security Manager offers real-time protection and conducts scheduled virus scans.
