First 12TB network storage server from Seagate

Seagate has announced the BlackArmor NAS, a four-bay network storage server filled with 3TB drives for up to 12TB of storage

Has your small business outgrown its current network storage? Do you want space for all of your TV shows, games, and HD videos? Seagate might have the solution for you with its BlackArmor network-attached storage (NAS) system, with four bays that can take 3 terabyte drives for a grand total of 12 terabytes of sweet, sweet storage.

Seagate claims that these drives will deliver maximum uptime as well as the software management tools to help businesses with about 50 employees store and share data. The BlackArmor servers purport to have "powerful hardware-based encryption" to keep your data safe, as well as support for Microsoft's Active Directory for controlling which users and groups have access to your server.

Configured with RAID to protect your data, BlackArmor also has the TimeMachine-like SafetyDrill+ software for providing backups and restore points for your PCs. There are even USB ports so you can add more storage, a printer, or a UPS (uninterruptable power supply). However, the 12TB BlackArmor NAS 440 will cost you about $1,900, and the BlackArmor NAS 220 6TB version ships for $650.

What would you do with 12TB of space? Fill it up with lolcats? Back up all of Wikipedia?

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.
