Seagate NAS HDD 4TB review

Seagate NAS HDD 4TB review As Western Digital found with its WD Red hard disk, there’s a healthy interest in high-capacity hard disks you can use in a NAS drive. The Seagate NAS is the unimaginatively named product from Seagate that fills a gap in its range, a 3.5in SATA disk available 2, 3 and […]

WD Red 6TB review

WD Red 6TB review As inevitable as death and taxes, the size of hard disks is always changing, getting bigger by the year. We were at a 4 TB impasse for a while though, since late in 2011 when first Seagate and closely followed by Hitachi, released the first 3.5-inch SATA disks with 4000 GB […]

Patriot Aero review

Patriot Aero review Like its Seagate Wireless Plus and Corsair Voyager Air storage competition, the Patriot Aero is by all appearances a simple, if somewhat large, 2.5-inch external USB 3.0 hard drive. The only clue that it’s also a wireless multimedia streamer is the Wi-Fi indicator light. With apps for Android and iOS, you can easily […]

LaCie XtremKey 64 GB review

LaCie XtremKey 64 GB review Undersea depths of 200 metres and pressures from 10-ton vehicles are shrugged off by the XtremKey.

Synology DS1813+ review

Synology DS1813+ review Two’s company and three’s a crowd. But in NAS circles, the real magic starts when you have four drive bays to play with. That’s when the circles of ‘data security’ and ‘performance’ coincide, by striping data across several disks in RAID 5 for added performance and disk redundancy. So eight drive bays […]
