    The ioSafe gang is at it again!  They are answering our request for faster access to their already great line of rugged external drives by adding USB 3.0 and eSATA.  The SoloPRO also ups the ante by offering $2500 towards data recovery services in case you ever have a failure of the drive.  The look cool too!

     

    SoloPro SoloPRO_Box

     

    Pricing will be $249.99 for the 1 TB model, $319.99 for the 1.5 TB model and $419.99 for the 2 TB

    model.  Look for the SoloPRO to land September 1, 2010.

     

    From the press release:

     

    ioSafe® Announces the SoloPRO: Its Fastest Rugged External Hard Drive

     

    The ioSafe® SoloPRO is available in high-performance USB 3.0 and eSATA versions, providing

    users with an unprecedented combination of speed and physical security.

     

    AUBURN, Calif., August 18, 2010 -- ioSafe today announced the availability of the SoloPRO.

    The SoloPRO is the business-class edition of the award-winning Solo external hard drive and is

    available in USB 3.0 and eSATA/USB 2.0 formats, providing full support for Windows, Linux

    servers, and desktop operating systems.

     

    SoloPRO features include:

    Fast transfer speeds over 100 MB/s - 3 to 4 times faster than typical USB 2.0 speeds. One

    TB of data can be backed up to a SoloPRO in a couple of hours versus 10+ hours with

    USB 2.0 or several months online at normal speeds.

     

    Available in 1 TB, 1.5 TB and 2 TB capacities.

     

    Rugged disaster proof design. Both the USB 3.0 and eSATA versions of the SoloPRO

    protect against data loss in temperatures up to 1550° F for 30 minutes per ASTM E119 or

    being submerged to a depth of 10 feet for up to 3 days.

    Advanced Replacement Service. Replacement products under warranty will be shipped

    out in advance with proper packaging and return shipping pre-paid. The end user simply

    uses the packaging to ship the original unit back to the factory.

     

    12 months Data Recovery Service Standard. Up to $2,500.00 towards the cost of thirdparty

    forensic data recovery, one time, for any reason including accidental deletion, hard

    drive failure, fires, floods, etc. Upgradeable to 3 or 5 years for $49 or $99 respectively.

     

    Heat-resistant paint option. Bright emergency orange colored coating to help make the

    SoloPRO easy to recover in a post-disaster environment.

    “Both homes and businesses need to store ever-increasing volumes of data quickly without

    worrying about data loss. ioSafe has always been about safely and securely storing data locally

    and now with its introduction of USB 3.0 and eSATA, homes and businesses can accomplish

    that more quickly than ever before ," said Jerome Wendt, an expert in data storage who serves as

    the Principal and Lead Analyst at DCIG.

     

    Martin A. Regtien, Editor-in-Chief of Digital Reviews Network, tested the SoloPRO and said,

    "Based on the ioSafe SoloPRO USB 3.0 strengths – in this case its literal strengths of being

    fireproof, waterproof - plus its value for money, we have no option but to award it our highest

    commendation: our Editor’s Choice Award."

     

    ioSafe CEO Robb Moore added, "The new SoloPRO provides industry-leading performance and

    physical security as well as plug-and-play simplicity. Additionally, the new interfaces and

    upgraded Data Recovery Services make the SoloPRO a logical choice for disaster protection in

    home office and business environments."

     

    The USB 3.0 Solo is compatible with USB 2.0.

     

    Users without USB 3.0 who wish to upgrade can

    easily do so by adding a USB 3.0 PCI Express card to their system.

     

    Pricing and availability

    Priced at $249.99 for the 1 TB model, $319.99 for the 1.5 TB model and $419.99 for the 2 TB

    model, the SoloPRO will be available September 1, 2010 via the ioSafe website, resellers and

    international distributors.

    Question--if anyone knows: If I already have an external enclosure (SansDigital TR4MP ) attached to my EX475 via eSATA, can I also connect this device via eSATA somehow?

    • I throw this out every once in a while.  Is anyone interested in writing up "semi-formal" reviews here on the forums?  I say semi-formal because they don't have to be pro level, just a good attempt at telling the story about the gear.  Something you have purchased lately.  You don't have to go buy stuff, just incorporate what you have already have purchased.  Hit me up with any questions.  You never know where it will lead!

    • D-Link has dropped a couple of new products and additions to their lineup of smart home gear.  Hold on because there is a lot of gear!
      Let's start with cameras.  D-Link has new Wi-Fi cameras, the Full HD Pan and Tilt Pro Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8302LH) and Full HD Indoor and Outdoor Pro Wi-Fi Camera (DCS-8526LH).  These are not just new, and good looking cams, they can now perform people detection and glass break detection.  The new cameras also feature expanded ways for customers to save video, including ONVIF Profile S, which enables custom storage and streaming options to personal NAS devices, built-in storage microSD capacity up to 256 GB, as well as free and paid cloud storage options. 
       

       
      This year's camera models include both an indoor and an outdoor model. The outdoor model features a spotlight and siren that can be triggered when motion is detected, deterring potential intruders. The indoor model pans around to give a full 360-degree view of any room and tracks motion. Both include two-way audio. 
      Full HD Pan and Tilt Pro Wi-Fi Camera is the model (DCS-8302LH), available in Q2, 2020, and retail pricing will be $99.99.
      Full HD Indoor and Outdoor Pro Wi-Fi Camera is the model (DCS-8526LH), available in Q3, 2020, and retail pricing will be $119.99.
      One of my favorite products is Wi-Fi.  D-Link has a whole lot of new products coming including Wi-Fi 6, Mesh, Alexa and Google Assistant integration, IFTTT, Parental Controls, and more!
       

       
      There are so many new SKU's that I can't make heads or tails of them!  I'm going to be speaking with D-Link more this week and will sort all of these out. I do want you to see all they are offering and what the release date and projected retail pricing will be.

      Here is the main design.
       

       
      Below is a part of the order that I put in!  
       
       

       
      The Heather Grey above is the Extra Soft version and it is awesome.  I highly recommend the softness!    The "Chili Red" is the Tri-Blend and probably my favorite feel and color.

       
      This is the Zip-Up Hoody, Heather Indigo, Sponge Fleece, Men's, Large.  In my podcast I couldn't remember what style it was but it is Sponge Fleece. It's REALLY soft on the inside. Soft outside as well. The only problem is with the zip up hoody the logo is on the back. Regular hoody, it will be on the front.

    • OneDrive Personal Vault and expandable storage
      Microsoft's OneDrive has a few new features and options worth pointing out.  Personal Vault and Expandable Storage.
       
      Personal Vault is a protected area in OneDrive that can only be accessed with a strong authentication method or a second step of identity verification, such as your fingerprint, face, PIN, or a code sent to you via email or SMS. 
       
      Personal Vault gives you an added layer of protection for your most important files, photos, and videos—for example, copies of documents such as your passport, driver’s license, or insurance information—should someone gain access to your account or device.
      Plus, this added security won’t slow you down. You can quickly access your important documents, photos, and files with confidence wherever you are, on your PC, OneDrive.com, or your mobile device.

       
      Beyond a second layer of identity verification, Personal Vault also includes the following security measures:
       
      Scan and shoot—Using the OneDrive app, you can scan documents or shoot photos directly into your Personal Vault, keeping them off less secure areas of your device, like your camera roll.
      Automatic locking—No need to worry about whether you left your Personal Vault or your files open—both will close and lock automatically after a period of inactivity.
      BitLocker encryption—On Windows 10 PCs, OneDrive automatically syncs your Personal Vault files to a BitLocker-encrypted area of your local hard drive.
      Restricted sharing—To prevent accidental sharing, files in Personal Vault and shared items moved into Personal Vault cannot be shared.
       
      Taken together, these security measures help ensure that Personal Vault files are not stored unprotected on your PC, and your files have additional protection, even if your Windows 10 PC or mobile device is lost, stolen, or someone gains access to it or to your account.
       
      Expandable Storage
       
      If you are and Office 365 Subscriber you get 1 TB of OneDrive storage space with all the other Office goodies like Word, Excel, etc.  I know personally that I have gone over the 1TB limit and have always wanted to be able to add additional storage to my account.  Now you can!

       
      Pick and option and keep on hoarding, errr, I mean saving! Cancel anytime, upgrade at any moment.

    • Ubiquiti adds new items to the Unifi Line including UAP Flex HD and the Unifi Dream machine
      Ubiquiti has been busy.  There area ton of new items to recently released and I'm going to share two of my favorites.
       
      The UAP Flex HD and the Unifi Dream machine. The Flex HD is a mouthful of descriptors like most of UI gear is.  It's a 2Ghz 2x2 MIMO, 5GHz 4x4 MU-MIMO, POE, Indoor/Outdoor, multi mount, mesh point that is no bigger than a can of Coke.

       
      You will still need the Unifi controller although you can configure it with basic functionality with the Unifi App.  I've always found it's best to configure with your controller and then use the app as an add-on.  There are several mounting options that include sitting it on a shelf! That is something that Unifi has not had before unless you count the ceiling AP I have awkwardly mounted placed on top of a few books.  It can be found on the Unifi store for $179.
       
      https://store.ui.com/collections/wireless/products/unifi-flexhd
       
      The Dream Machine is an altogether different beast that I hope lives up to its naming.  This is the gateway drug, for lack of a better term, to the Unifi world.  The starter kit.  It is an Access Point, Gigabit Switch, Security Gateway, and the Cloud Key all in one package.  The latter being the most significant as this is something that has deterred new users from getting started with Unifi.  Requiring new users to purchase a $100 item just to run the AP's has been somewhat of a roadblock in the past.  Granted, that is improving every year with the ability to run it in the cloud, on a NAS, a Pi, Docker, MacOS, and of course Windows, it is still a barricade to getting up and running when manufacturers such as Eero offer simplicity in an app.
       

       
      The switch includes 4 LAN Ports and 1 WAN port.  All of which are Gigabit and security services such as IPS are rated at Gigabit speed. It's $299 in the Unifi store but I'm unsure how nicely it will play with other Unifi gear.  This may be a nice "first AP" with its built in Cloud Key if you can add additional units or other Unifi access points.
