From our own experience we know that many small businesses-and for that matter even larger ones, have not discovered or implemented NAS units in their organisations.
This is not a primer on the benefits of NAS but a summary of our day-to-day experience with the RS814+ which is the latest product from Synology aimed at serving the smaller businesses.

More importantly, the RS814+RP was launched at the same time that the latest implementation of DSM 5.0 was released, the heart and soul of the machine. We'll spend some time highlighting the new features of this latest update of the operating system.

This external hard drive, just announced by Apricorn, is a sure contender for the product with the longest title. Because I should have also mentioned that FIPS is really FIPS 140 – 2 Level 2 Validation....
I hear you thinking: yeah, whatever that means!


So let me explain it in layman's terms. This is easily the most secure, the toughest, and the largest capacity drive (up to 6 TB!) you can buy for a fairly reasonable amount of money in 2014.

Most things of value are worth protecting. Particularly when you're travelling with it. You buy a new phone and the first accessory you buy is probably a decent case. Same with the Phantom 2 Vision.

Could ironing ever be a pleasurable experience?

Some people don't mind it, most probably hate it with a passion but the people behind Laurastar seem to have the notion that ironing can indeed become a pleasure.


In my opinion it could only become so if the results are truly excellent and if you work with a machine that is versatile, easy to work with and designed to last a lifetime.


It is clear that Laurastar sets the bar very high. Consequently, our expectations are similarly very high.

So let us take you on a couple of weeks of intense testing to see if the rather steep price is fully justified.

I've lost count on how many devices from Apricorn we have reviewed over the past 10 years.
The Padlock series is the most secure external hard drive line available today and Apricorn seems to be the market leader in this field.
No surprises there.


What did surprise me was how small the form factor is of their latest Padlock SSD!
So let's have a look once I can find the key to this Padlock....
