The combination of quick read and write performance, useful utilities, easy setup, and a fair price makes the tiny Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition drive a winner.
The Maxtor Central Axis is a simple, compact, and fast NAS device that offers 1TB of storage at a fair price. Be warned, though, that it runs hot and comes with confusing desktop software, a sluggish, unintuitive Web-based interface and a limited backup application.
The impenetrable Maxtor Black Armor is the Fort Knox of external hard drives, but the added security comes at a hefty price tag. This device might appeal to those who need the most protection possible, but the competition offers more space for less money.
The Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus is a good choice for the average home user who wants a fast and simple-to-use external hard drive for backup and storage. Mac users will want to find a different restore utility to use with it.
The Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini is a great option for working on the go, with fast write speeds as well as backup and restore software.
Maxtor's OneTouch III Turbo Edition packs in a lot of features and capabilities at a fair price. Among external desktop hard drives, it's a winner.
A fine camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i's more expensive 18-135mm STM kit (or body with another STM lens) is the only version that merits an unqualified recommendation. You can probably find better alternatives if you just want a sub-$1,000 dSLR for still photography.
The Maxtor Fusion NAS drive makes child's play of organizing and sharing files remotely. Even though the price tag is a bit high, we love it.
