  1. The all new Crucial X6 may not win any awards for sheer speed (as it is SATA and not NVMe based) nor for having the lowest asking price in the market… and certainly no awards for being the most robust; but those are about the only major negatives we can think of. This is a rather flexible, predictable, and not overly expensive model that we can see making waves in a corner of the market that has become rather saturated of late. That in and of itself is impressive. Read the full review below https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/crucial-x6-2tb-external-ssd-review/
  2. Taken as a whole, if you are not impressed by what Seagate was able to do… you have not been paying attention. It may not be flashy, it arguably is not being marketed optimally, and certainly is not a ‘revolutionary break through’ we have come to expect, but this new gen is a great evolution to an existing foundation. A firm foundation that has been further refined, and this refinement does pay tangible dividends. As such, if you can afford the asking price the Seagate IronWolf Pro 18TB easily justifies its professional moniker and its asking price – and then some. For those that cannot? Fear
  3. We are surprised on what this little guy can do. Check out our full review of the Crucial X8 2TB below! https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/crucial-x8-2tb-external-ssd-review/
  4. This is honestly the perfect thing for people who love having a little personal flair in their bedroom, or on their desk. Overall it’s a solid buy especially as gift if your willing to put some money behind it. If your looking for something cheaper they do offer smaller and cheaper versions in their pixel art series that you can buy. Read the full review here
  5. The LaCie 2Big RAID going to be right for every customer and every possible scenario? Of course not. Not everyone needs the flexibility a dual bay D.A.S has to offer. Not everyone will be able to get over toting around this much added weight. Not everyone will like the lack of daisy chaining abilities. Others still will prefer to spend the same amount of money on 1Big Dock and get more features at the expense of RAID abilities. For security conscious professionals, the lack of a lock on the drive caddies will be a major turn off. As such not everyone will be able to justify the asking price. T

    @eyetrance Thanks for keeping us updated! Tons of new stuff incoming for the site and channel!
  7. To be blunt, the LaCie 1Big Dock SSD Pro 4TB is not perfect but we still absolutely love this device. What it has to offer is a veritable siren song to us. It is fast, it is easy to work with, and above all else it is tailor made for satisfying (almost) all our needs. You may feel differently, as we are part of the laser like focus niche this specific model was designed for. Put simply, this model is designed by professionals for professionals and makes no compromises to appeal to a wider audience. You will either love what it has to offer and consider it an investment (as time is money)… or i
  8. If you are looking for replacement drives for your surveillance appliance/server the SkyHawk is basically the only one of two models you need look at. For everyone else, there are less… specialized models that probably will fit your needs better Check our review below. Read the Full Review
  9. As it stands the Seagate FireCuda Gaming Dock may come with a bit of sticker shock… but for what it offers it is actually a pretty good bargain. So while not perfect, and plenty of room for version 2.0 to improve upon, the FireCuda Gaming Dock is worth a long hard look. Check our review below. Read the Full Review
  10. If the LaCie 1Big Dock series features are precisely what you are looking for it is a fan-freaking-tastic choice - and is an excellent example of engineering prowess. Alternatively, if the 1Big Dock does not match your needs perfectly, then it may not be a great fit for you. Still decent to good, but not necessarily optimal. As long as you understand exactly all the things it brings to the table, and they align with your needs, we would strongly suggest taking a long hard look at this bad boy. It can indeed make a great case for being your next purchase… seemingly high asking price or not

    Let me see what I can find! Cheers.
  12. It will not appeal to everyone, but it is a good ‘no frills’ option for those who need 1TB or less of external storage that will not break your budget. As long as you understand these limitations and fit inside its design envelope it might worth your time and money tracking down this 1TB variant. For everyone else, Seagate 2.5” HDD based Backup Plus, Lacie’s 3.5” HDD based ‘Big’ series, or Seagate’s mega capacity options that can net good performance via sheer brute force may be a better match for your needs.
  13. So, if you are a responsible for a Small or even a Medium(ish) sized Business yet cannot justify the cost of the uber EXOS series, and do not care about a write-back instead of write-through cache policy, this IronWolf Pro 16TB is meant for you. Pull the trigger on that buy order and be done with it. Being able to stuff 24 drives (for a whopping 384TB of raw capacity) in a single 4U network storage device and not have to worry about them shaking themselves to death is a great feeling. Being able to do that and not have to spend EXOS levels of money… well that is an even better feeling. If you

    One of our partners for the site has decided to retire. I'm in the process of taking over the main tasks for RHR. I must admit that forum is a bit dead but were planing to push it more on YouTube in the upcoming months. Our discord chat is always full of activity. You can join there in the meantime while we iron things out.
