OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD - Reviewed

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Storage

Read more: OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD - ReviewedSometimes it is not the absolute specs of one of the latest or greatest devices but rather the relative "wow" factor you experience when comparing it to a similar but one or two years older device. Such is the case with the OCZ Vertex 2 SSD which replaced the Imation M-Class SSD in one of our test platforms. If you are after extensive benchmarks, which for most general users don't mean a thing, read no further. But if you like to see what an amazing difference replacing an older SSD in your laptop can mean, just click on Read More....

ioSafe SoloPRO USB 3.0 Pre-Production Unit - Reviewed

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Storage

Read more: ioSafe SoloPRO USB 3.0 Pre-Production Unit - ReviewedThe latest and fastest member of the ioSafe family of tough guys landed on our desk today. Weighing in at 15 pounds (for just 1 hard drive!) you get the distinct impression that this baby gorilla will stand its ground no matter what life throws at it: come hail or flood, fire or brimstone! Brimstone? Haven’t seen that in any natural disasters lately but it may be on the cards yet... Anyway, the SoloPRO looks like one hefty, over-engineered, over-protective guardian of your irreplaceable data. Welcome to my office, black beast, and we’ll see how good you really are.

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?

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.

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?
