In my opinion, one of the most essential gadgets I can have at home and at work at the present time is a hard disk dock. I have a motley collection of hard drives of various capacity and sizes in the graveyard box courtesy of system upgrades. With the new Akasa DuoDock 2S USB 3.0 Docking Station, our friends at Brando kindly sent an unit for the DigitalReviews treatment.
NewerTech delivered a plug and play eSATA to USB 3.0 adapter for superspeed data transfer to our office is recently and today we are having a quick look at it. The idea behind this little gizmo is that you can adapt any legacy eSATA drive to your USB 3.0 port to enjoy data transfer speeds up to 5Gb/s. So what's the problem?
Today we will give you two reviews bundled into one. The reason is that the Jabra Freeway and the Jabra Stone2 came out more or less together and serve the same function in bringing us hands-free capabilities for our phones. We have seldom been more impressed with any hands-free device than with these two from the House of Jabra!
One of the problems with input devices is that they may cause repetitive strain injury. That's why I am continually on the lookout for devices that are easy to use, lightweight and that will work on most any surface. I think the Genius Pen Mouse is coming pretty close to the ideal.

Well if you've got an iPad, and you've been using the office applications you probably have found it's not the fastest way of inputting data. EFO have a new product we've just reviewed that could significantly improve the speed at which you input data into your iPad whilst on the move.

You think that they are all pretty much the same until you get your hands on this little beauty from NoiseHush. There are a lot of reasons why this one has become the speaker phone of choice for me.
Let me tell you why.
We’ve reviewed plenty of them here on DigitalReviews.net including solar ones. And the end result is very much the same for these external battery charging devices But right from the unpacking the Primo Cube got me excited.
Let’s see what this is all about.
Situation: you have a laptop/netbook and are forever plugging external devices in and out. Perhaps a hard drive, extra monitor, internet cable and so on. Solution: a USB docking station or port replicator. Better solution: a Targus ACP51AUZ USB 2.0 Docking Station with Video.
Result: Situation under control. Seems simple enough but how does it work in reality?
Just a few days ago we mentioned the announcement of the Aegis NetDock and already we're having a fantastic looking unit in gorgeous deep red hooked up to our computer!
That's pretty fast for a transpacific and continental shipment. Courtesy of Apricorn and ProLine Communications agency we're having a good look at what is probably the most essential accessory for any netbook and most tablet users: a portable hard drive combined with a DVD burner and a bunch of powered and unpowered USB ports.
Let's check out what's beyond the good looks.
