LaCie has announced a range of storage solutions for video professionals. The LaCie 12big Rack product range is an enterprise class 2U rack-mounted portfolio.

The LaCie 12big Rack Fiber, LaCie 12big Rack Serial, and LaCie 12big Rack Network, provide, respectively, SAN, DAS and NAS storage solutions.

The range features multipath 4x 4Gb/s fibre channel connections, dual mini-SAS connection -- SFF-8088 -- or dual 1Gb/s Ethernet connection -- making the 12big Rack portfolio a comprehensive storage range.

Built with Enterprise Class SATA disks, the LaCie 12big Rack product range ensures data is always available through the redundancy of power supplies, cooling units and a dual-controller option for the LaCie 12big Rack Fiber and the LaCie 12big Rack Serial explains the company.

The range also offers multiple RAID levels for data protection, from RAID 0, 1, 10, 5 and 50, up to RAID 6, promising to keep the most critical data safe against two-disk failure.

Additionally, the LaCie 12big Rack Fibre's Advanced Power Management feature and disk verify feature help ensure archived data is duly available upon the customer's request.

The LaCie 12big Rack Fibre supports a dual Active/Active controller's option and allows up to six streams of 422 uncompressed HD video.

The LaCie 12big Rack Network supports link teaming -- IEEE 802.3ad -- of its dual gigabit connections, allowing users to host critical backups, file sharing or archiving.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
