Hitachi LifeStudio Plus 500GB Review
15 November 2010
Excerpt: Ever heard the phrase, “Do one thing, and do it well?” Hitachi surely has. The company took that advice, considered it, threw it out the window, and released an external backup drive bundled with a media suite that does many things—some of them potentially interesting, but none of them particularly well. The Hitachi LifeStudio Plus is an external backup drive with an interesting dock, a cool companion USB key, and a clunky, awkward integrated software suite.
Pros: Neat hard drive dock; cool flash-drive magnetic interface.

Conclusion: Since the drive is built with USB 2.0 technology it won't be winning any speed contests. But even large movie files transfer in under a minute. The installed applications consume a small amount of resources and can be run as one of many other open applications. The resources consumed make it hardly noticeable when a backup takes place.
Pros: Dockable USB key, Portable Hard Drive, Very easy to use, 3D Wall, Easy to access online content, Automatic backups, Automatic USB sync, Cloud storage option, Basic file support
Cons: No advanced options, Content player lacks features, Software must be installed
