    Review: Addonics NAS 3.0 Adapter

    We reviewed Addonics‘s first NAS adapter in early 2009, somehow missed the second version of the same, and now present our review of their NAS 3.0 Adapter. Like the previous iterations, the NAS 3.0 Adapter is an extremely small device. It sports two USB ports, an RJ-45 port, and a power socket. As with the original version, the power adapter is not a wall wart. Say what you want… Read More

    Addonics touts first portable Blu-ray player drive, except its not

    On one hand, the Addonics Pocket Blu-ray/DVDRW packs eSATA and USB 2.0, but it isn’t the first portable Blu-ray player drive. Correct me if I’m wrong, but Fastmac released an external Blu-ray player drive back in January at Macworld, which I believe was the first external Blu-ray drive.

Along one side are two status LEDs, and a reset button. Read More

    Flash-based Laptop for $30

    Very cool. Addonics is selling a $30 Compact Flash adapter that allows you to boot from any CF card just like a standard 2.5″ hard drive. The adapter comes in SATA and IDE and can use multiple flash cards at once. Clearly, you’d need a few hundred for some fat CF cards — $260 for 24GB — but the read and write speeds will be phenomenal. This will become extremely… Read More
