Mini Storage Device


Are you transferring data from one computer to the next? Need a good storage companion? Kanguru Solutions recently released the newly redesigned Quicksilver external hard drive. The sleek and sturdy exterior allows for improved heat dissipation during prolonged use, and can withstand up to 200 Gs of shock, say company spokespeople. Quicksilver can also stand vertically or horizontally, and can fit into any small space. In addition, it can transfer data with a 7200RPM drive, and 400GB of storage capacity. Available in both USB 2.0 and FireWire/USB 2.0. Priced at $119.95 for the 80GB USB model and $559.95 for the 400GB USB/FireWire Combo model. www.kanguru.com.


Disk-to-Disk Backup

The ATAbaby disk-based storage solution from Nexsan uses the latest advancements in Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA) technology to help expand storage capacity and improve business continuance. Ideal for small-to-medium campus environments, with up to 1.2 terabytes of storage in a single unit, ATAbaby provides RAID protection in a compact package. Use for primary storage, disk-to-disk backup, or improved workflow. Street Price: $1,900 to $2,500. www.nexsan.com.


Driver Support
The latest version of Bitlogix NetControl, a software-based media control system, offers driver support for the XG-MB70X DLP projector from Sharp: Users can access and control the projector over a computer network. The best part is that users who use both NetControl and Sharp’s XG-MB70X DLP projector will not need an additional Ethernet control interface. An additional bonus is anti-theft control, and event scheduler. NetControl will be offered soon on other projectors, such as those from EIKI, Epson, Hitachi, and Panasonic. Prices start at $1,073 (based on number of users and devices purchased). www.bitlogix.com.
