Review: ClickFree Wireless Backup C3 - 1/20/2011
The Clickfree Wireless Backup likely lacks the power, storage and configuration options power users often crave. However, those seeking a simple to use and configure wireless backup solution should consider the device as a solution for their needs.


Review: Infinitech Infinite USB Memory Drive - 12/19/2010
Infinitec's Infinite USB Memory Drive is an ambitious and innovative product that delivers what it promises when it works. But it's not quite reliable or consistent enough for prime time; hopefully this can be achieved with future software updates.

With simple setup and plenty of useful features, Engenius's portable Wi-Fi router is a real bargain with little competition if all you're after is go-anywhere wireless.
