Read more: The Ultimate in Security: Apricorn Aegis BIO Encrypted Biometric 640MB -...Have you ever gotten excited by reading a spec sheet?
I have, particularly when I’m in the market for a certain product and the spec sheet ticks all the boxes. Such was the case before I received the latest external hard drive from Apricorn.
Wait, you say, getting turned on by a hard drive? Yes, and it’s not even a full Terabyte...but wait till you see how it is packaged! I’m talking about the Apricorn Aegis BIO Encrypted Biometric 640MB drive.

So what’s so great about this product?

 

Thecus N2200 Network Attached Storage Device - Reviewed

In an effort to strengthen its NAS (network attached storage) lineup for the home or small office, Thecus has released the new N2200.  Designed to be easy to setup and use, it offers enterprise-class data protection combined with rich multimedia features.  Because this is meant for the home, ease-of-use is a key concept since it needs to be easily accessible and useful to a larger audience.   In addition, the hardware needs to be easy to configure and setup, while having a design that can easily fit within a home environment.  If a company can build a product that performs well in all these, I’m sure the product will be a hit.  But from my past experience, each NAS product always seems to have certain strengths and weaknesses.  Let’s begin by having a look at the product.

Axus FiT RAID Chassis -Reviewed

Read more: Axus FiT RAID Chassis -Reviewed

From time to time DigitalReviews is approached to review products because of our reputation for unbiased, no holds barred reviews.  I have to admit that I never heard of Axus in my travels, but they have kindly provided two of their FiT RAID Series chassis for our reviewing pleasure.  Axus is a Taiwanese company that appears to specialise in storage - large amounts of it at 16 or 24 bays with fibre channel or SCSI interfaces.  The Fit Series is their new foray into the lower end of the market and we will be reviewing the FiT 300E and the FiT 500E.

So how do these stack up?

RAID 101 - Introduction to RAID

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Storage

Read more: RAID 101 - Introduction to RAIDWe've been publishing quite a few reviews on NAS units lately here on DigitalReviews.net  -- and we're not done yet!

In them we always talk about RAID configurations and provide a brief explanation when we do so.

But sometimes it's good to get more than just a quick reminder and dig into a solid overview of all the RAID possibilities. 

Well, our friends at OZHardware did just that and here's the link to an excellent article.

They haven't mentioned RAID 10 yet but there are two more advanced write-ups coming!

Thanks, guys!

Written by Richard on . Posted in Storage

Read more: Cavalry Pelican 2.5There have been quite a few reviews around the web touting the fastest and biggest solid state drives (SSD), but you have probably been turned off because of the hefty price tags associated with them. 

In this review, we take a look at a SSD that is actually affordable.  With a reasonable size of 32GB and a price tag potential of just under $100, this is a product that seems to be just right for a consumer looking to take advantage of this technology.
