Planex Router Supports BitTorrent, MPAA Already Upset


Routers with BitTorrent support aren’t exactly new, but any device that makes watching “The Shield” easier is alright in my book. This one’s from Planex (the MZ-04G, to be exact) and, unfortunately, will probably only be available in Japan. Routers like this are great because, rather than leaving your entire electricity-hungry rig on all night to grab torrents of, you know, Linux distros, you can just keep the router on. The built-in BitTorrent client will churn away while you sleep. Two USB ports means you can add gigs upon gigs of storage to the router. High-def rips for the win, amigos.

Again, while we’ll never see this particular guy over here, it’s good to see these types of routers gain in popularity.
