Archgon MH-3507HUB Fusion II Docking System

I don’t know about you but I personally have several small and large capacity 2.5" and 3.5" external hard drives that I use for storage only. I store movies, music, pictures, and important data on several separate HDDs. This makes it easier for me to label each drive to keep track of what I have on them and also enables me to designate the right size HDD for my storage needs. I despise having to dismantle and remove the hard drive from my vertical enclosure on my desk whenever I want to swap them out. The amount of time it takes to open the enclosure, remove and swap out the drive is sometimes so frustrating because it frequently takes me longer than the actually transfer of the data itself. Today I have the pleasure of reviewing an enclosure that I believe may relieve these frustrations. The Archgon Fusion II Docking System comes with on board USB 3.0 support, USB 3.0 Hub and will support hard drives up to 3TB in size. The Archgon Fusion II also features a patented drive ejection system, making removal of your HDD or SSD quick, safe, and easy. The Archgon MH-3507HUB Fusion II has a horizontal open architecture design that helps reduce heat and alleviates vibration during drive spin up, protecting your drive from damage while the drive is working. The Archgon MH-3507HUB Fusion II features an external three port USB 3.0 hub allowing the user to plug other USB devices into the hub and still take full advantage of the USB 3.0 speed. Let’s read on to see what else ...



 
 
 
 
 

Patriot Gauntlet Node Portable Storage Device

I have to say I am totally blown away as to just how far we have come since then. With everyone going mobile, we now have Cell Phones, Tablets, Notebooks, Laptops, and other portable devices to download, store and stream video and data wirelessly across the information highway at breakneck speeds. Today I have the pleasure of reviewing such a device; The Gauntlet Node from Patriot Memory. We have high demands being placed on us at school, in the workplace, and at home, to store and transfer data and information. With hard drive space on our laptops and computers becoming a premium, I believe Patriot, with the Gauntlet Node, may have come up with a perfect solution. With the Gauntlet Node, you can do it fast and inexpensively, but more importantly wirelessly as well.
