Hitachi LifeStudio Plus 500GB Review
15 November 2010
Summary: The online storage isn’t better than Dropbox, the MyKey syncing mechanism doesn’t work as well as using SyncToy, and viewing video through the Cooliris interface isn’t anywhere near as good as using Hulu Desktop or even a web browser. The LifeStudio Plus, with its easy-to-use dock, attractive styling, and snap-on USB key, is a cool product.
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
