  • Excerpt: If you don’t need a lot of storage, Seagate’s diminutive BlackArmor NAS 220 can be tucked into a bookshelf or the even the corner of your desk where it will quietly serve the needs of a small office or workgroup with as many as 20 PCs. The NAS 220 has two drive bays and can purchased with either one or two terabytes of capacity; we reviewed the 2TB model, which is street-priced at $279.
  • Pros: Relatively fast read speeds; useful software utilities; integrated iTunes and DLNA media servers; quiet.
  • Cons: Small capacity; no integrated BitTorrent client; no eSATA port.

  • Conclusion: The new Seagate BlackArmor PS110 not only features a hard drive upgraded to 7200RPM from the 5400RPM of the original, but it’s also USB3.0 enabled. Aesthetically it’s the same, but it’s what’s on the inside that counts right? The new PS110 is a faster drive overall, and the USB3.0 interface makes your transfers even faster. The kit includes everything you need to add USB3.0 to your netbook or laptop just plug it in and go basically.
