Buffalo LinkStation Pro Quad 4-bay NAS drive

Ten four-bay NAS boxes

Product Round-up The storage needs of home users are ever growing, such that the capacity of dual-layer DVDs appears miniscule, and backing up CD looks desperate. Many are now turning to network accessible storage systems that not only allow data storage in the home, but also provide HTTP, FTP and cloud services for when you’re on the go. The …

Drobo brings RAID, battery backup to the desktop - and the hand

Drobo has re-invented its desktop storage products, giving them a dose of Thunderbolt connectivity, SSD and 2.5-inch drive support, as well as introducing a portable Drobo mini.

Ten FireWire External Hard Drives

Ten... FireWire 800 hard drives

Product round-up FireWire interfacing has been around since the mid-1990s and, as far as Apple is concerned, looks set to be ousted by its new Thunderbolt technology in due course. However, it still features on most new Macs, is available for PCs and remains popular in desktop audio and video environments. It's also a convenient option for …

Iomega TV With Boxee and Network Storage

Iomega TV with Boxee

Review I’ve reviewed various models in Iomega’s ScreenPlay range in the past and, to be honest, haven’t been wildly impressed by any of them. Weaknesses such as the inability to list album tracks in the correct order suggested that Iomega’s designers hadn’t exactly thought things through properly. Iomega TV With Boxee and Network …

Shareholders rage over Imation's incredible 88% plunge

How do you build a $226m company? Start with a $2bn one. This joke could apply to Imation, which could go the way of Kodak and turn shareholder value into dross, because its management, facing declining sales of old technology, is late to respond and now buying bum companies with crappy prospects. That's the view implied by …

Iomega Mac Companion external storage

Iomega Mac Companion external hard drive

Review If the name of this hard drive isn’t explicit enough, one look at it will tell you exactly who it’s aimed at. The brushed aluminium surround and smoky black top mean that it looks right at home sitting beneath an iMac or Apple Cinema Display.

Your slide deck is held on VMware servers and you can edit it or play it from a variety of internet-accessing devices, from smartphones and tablets to laptops and desktops.

Iomega SuperHero

Iomega SuperHero iPhone back-up gadget

Review The cost of losing a smartphone goes further than the hardware: don't forget all the data - contacts, apps, pictures, music and so on - you keep on it. The sensible thing for iPhone owners to do is to regularly sync the handset with iTunes - it backs up all that content. Not everyone does this, of course. Iomega's answer is to …

Iomega SSD 128GB USB 3.0 drive

Review Kingston Tech is not the only SSD manufacturer now bringing out USB 3.0 external drives. Iomega’s unimaginatively named SSD Flash Drive comes in three capacities: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. With the latter costing £624, it's a purchase that demands a significant leap of faith. iomega SSD Iomega's SSD Flash Drive joins the …

Iomega intros auto-backup dock for iGadgets

CES 2011 Iomega's notion of an iPhone dock that automatically backs up your data when you charge up your iDevice is sound - plenty of folk don't actually sync their phones very often, if at all - but the company's newly announced SuperHero seems a tad half-arsed. Iomega SuperHero SuperHero is a dock that contains an SD slot and comes …

Iomega's flashy SSD clones your PC

Iomega has a line of pocket-sized external flash storage devices using a USB 3.0 interconnect. Should we call them USB slab drives? "Stick" seems a little too small. The External SSD Flash Drive has a 1.8-inch form factor and comes in 64, 128 and 256GB capacities, all with built-in 256-bit encryption. We don't know if it is …

WTF is... DLNA?

DVD and Blu-ray Disc players, internet radios, sound systems and projectors, TV set-top boxes and the TVs themselves have traditionally been a motley crew, arguing among themselves in so far as they communicate at all, about who should do what and to whom. The noble aim of the DLNA - the Digital Living Network Alliance - is to …

Iomega preps external SSDs

Iomega will release its first USB 3.0 external solid-state drives next month. They'll be none too cheap, mind: £183 for a 64GB model rising to £624 for the 256GB version. Ouch. Iomega external SSD These are 1.8in drives, and if they seem pricier than comparable internal 2.5in SSDs, bear in mind these are the prices which …
