Data Robotics has updated its Drobo S backup system, with Drobo S v.2 adding USB 3.0 support for high-speed external drives. As we reviewed back in April, the Drobo S has two FireWire ports and an eSATA connection, along with five 3.5-inch SATA I/II drive bays and the company's BeyondRAID data protection system; the second-gen version keeps all that, but throws in USB 3.0.
Clickfree's latest super-simple backup system has gone on sale, and this time the company is cutting the cord. The Clickfree C3 Wireless is a 500GB drive paired with a WiFi connection, similar to what we've seen from Apple's Time Capsule; the difference, however, is in how straightforward the C3's new BackupLink setup is.
The bright pink Pogoplug has been updated to the far more somber Pogoplug Pro, with the new model getting a slick black chassis and integrated wireless. Still priced at just $99, the Pogoplug Pro can connect up to four USB 2.0 devices to your network - now either via the wired ethernet connection or using WiFi - and share their contents locally and across the internet.
Data Robotics has announced its latest network backup system, the Data Robotics DroboPro FS. Based on the Drobo FS launched back in April and the DroboPro from the year before, the DroboPro FS is targeted at small businesses and supports up to eight 3.5-inch SATA-II hard-drives for a maximum 16TB capacity. Network connectivity consists of two gigabit ethernet ports.
LaCie has outed its latest external hard-drive, the Wireless Space, and while the Neil Poulton designed 1TB and 2TB drives may look a lot like the company's other blocky models, inside there's a whole lot of wireless goodness simmering away. The LaCie Wireless Space is a combination NAS, gigabit ethernet and WiFi b/g/n router, media server and network extender, basically the company's own version of the Apple Time Capsule.
The Pogoplug keeps getting updated, and there's not a single bad spot in sight. This time around, with a brand new firmware that's being pushed out to the devices right now, the pink box will officially support plenty of features that the company previously made official over the last few months. One of the most exciting ones: cloud printing!
Pogoplug has launched a new WiFi adapter, the Pogoplug Wireless Extender, which allows users of the home NAS adapter to get online via a wireless network rather than stringing ethernet cable to their router. Up for preorder at $29, the Wireless Extender supports WiFi b/g/n. Meanwhile Pogoplug are also slashing the price of their eponymous device, down from $129 to $99.
