Review of Seagate BlackArmor 500GB PS 110 USB 3.0 Performance Kit
22 February 2010
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?
Pros: Well made, Includes backup software, Everything you need to go USB3.0 on your laptop/netbook, Good warranty, Decent speeds on USB3.0, Includes a 7200RPM drive
Cons: ExpressCard requires extra power adapter, ExpressCard has only one USB port on it, No eSATA
Excerpt: Keeping files on a half dozen different computers scattered around the house doesn’t make a lot of sense. For many homes (and small offices), it’s a better idea to centralize things on a network-attached storage device, or NAS.
Pros: Up to 4 terabytes of easily accessible storage. Basic setup takes less than five minutes; ships preconfigured with most-commonly used settings. Default RAID 1 design means data is secure right out of the box. Small and unobtrusive.
Cons: Management console could be (a lot) friendlier, especially for novices. No wireless. )

Conclusion: The Seagate NAS 220 is a wonderful system for the home or small business user, I’ve got it hooked up to my main system and my netbook right now so I’ve got backup abilities for them and easy off-site access as well to all of my files on the server.
Pros: Easy to use, Well made, quiet, Easy off-site access with free Global Access account, Relatively fast, Tons of features

Pros: Baixo consumo de energia, Design discreto, Configuração simples
