    Iomega Silver Portable 80GB review

    The Zip drive may have made the company famous, but Iomega's long-standing reputation for innovative storage technologies would have faltered long ago if it hadn't evolved to deliver modern solutions at a price users could easily afford

    There are times when you'll need a professional backup storage solution, such as archiving company accounts and data, but what should you choose if you're looking for reliable, convenient and affordable backup?

    One ill-placed knock to your hard disk and you could see your precious backups scattered to the wind. With this storage system, Iomega seems pretty dedicated to helping you avoid finding yourself in such an unfortunate position...

    ATMT HD160 review

    Sometimes we're rather quick to dismiss gadgets which, outwardly, are a little on the cheap or tacky side. This tiny hard drive, gave us instant feelings of paternal joy that cut straight through that thick film of hard-won journalistic cynicism.

    Sony AW-G170A review

    You only need look at the latest versions of Nero and Creator to see that burning data to discs has been largely eclipsed by shuffling media onto different platforms directly, backing up across networks or using USB sticks

    PQI U510 Ultra Slim Card Drive 1GB review

    8  

    The PQI U510 looks appealing. You can't help but be drawn to a stylish- looking drive that's the size of a credit card, weighs only 23g and is available in sizes of 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB.

    WD Passport II review

    The average laptop comes with a hard drive in excess of 60GB, which is more than enough for the average user's needs. However, it's worthwhile investing in a back-up drive, so you'll always have a copy of your files safely stored at home.

    This My Book Pro is the biggest of two being issued by Western Digital (the 250GB version retails for £126). It's a high-end model at the top of the My Book range (running up from Essential through Premium to Pro), and delivers exceptional quality

    After the acquisition of Maxtor by its rival Seagate, the two companies are set to merge completely by the end of the year. Until then though, they'll continue to operate as separate entities in the market.

    Were we ever to stage a war, once we'd finished wiping the Earthclean of pushchairs and clipart, the next object of our agression wouldbe S-video.It's vastly inferior to the RGB SCART sockets found on most half-decent UK TVs

    Seagate's latest addition to its Barracuda range isn't just another update using existing technology; it's a new desktop capacity record. At 750GB it offers amazing potential for everything from media centres to desktops.

    Plextor PX-760A review

    8  

    A drive burning DVDs at 18x would surely explode into a million pieces - or so we thought. Plextor's PX-760A certainly generates the sort of noise that would suggest such a catastrophe, but it's admirably shy of vibration.

    A portable DVD drive like this one from Plextor has obvious advantages,even for desktop users. If you only need to burn DVDs once in a while,it makes sense to get a pocket-sized drive that you can slide into adrawer when you don't need it

    Maxtor OneTouch II review

    9  

    Compared with the super-slim LaCie Mobile Hard Drive, the Maxtor OneTouch II is something of a brick - maybe even a breezeblock. For a start, it's eight times as heavy as the LaCie model, and needs its own AC power supply.

    Iomega made itself an industry-standard name with its Jaz and Zip drives. Like these groundbreaking devices, the more recent REV introduction is based on small, convenient cartridges that you can buy on an ad hoc basis...

    You can argue about processors and hard drives until you're blue in the face, but what really matters in a media centre is purely superficial. It's got to look fantastic if you're putting it near your TV...

    First, the big perk of this external hard drive: out of the box, it's incredibly quick and easy to get going. The software pre-installed onthe Ethernet Mini disk allows you to configure the basics quickly: justplug the drive into your USB port...
