Unitek USB 3.0 Hub + Card Reader Review

When it comes to accessories for our PCs one that I always seem to need is a card reader. We shoot quite a lot of photos and video here at ThinkComputers and if we chose to transfer these files directly from our camera it would take forever. That is where a card reader comes in, which can take advantage of a faster USB 3.0 connection. Today we have one such card reader from Unitek, but it also comes with a 3-port USB hub as well. This makes it the perfect accessory for all of your external storage needs for your PC. Read on and see if that turns out to be true!

ADATA SD700 Portable Solid State Drive

ADATA SD700 Portable Solid State Drive Review

When you are traveling or on the go protecting your data is very important. When I travel I always have my camera with me, but sadly SD cards are not that durable. After a day of shooting I always take the photos off the SD card and back them up on a portable hard drive. ADATA recently announced their new SD700 portable solid state drive. This drive is made to survive the most extreme conditions with EC IP68 specifications with complete dust-tight protection and survivability in up to 1.5m of water for 60 minutes. On top of that it meets military-grade MIL-STD-810G516.6 shockproof protection. So your data is definitely safe! This drive is also fast offering speeds of up to 440 MB/s. Let's give this drive a spin and see what it can do!

Not only is this going to look great, but it will add extra protection to the drive as well. The drive features a very fast USB 3.0 connection so your transfers will take no time at all. The drive comes with the WD SmartWare Pro backup software so you can setup and schedule local as well as cloud backups with no problem at all.
