I like the fact that any data you have on an installed hard disk or on a USB or eSATA drive is accessible from anywhere by going to the myakito.com site. You can share data by pointing others to this URL, or by emailing data to them or by publishing content to the Web (the device support WebDAV.) Read More...

Overall the device is simply a joy to use. The initial setup can be a little tricky (if you don’t read the manual). The amount of function tossed in such a small space is absolutely amazing. From streaming to your Xbox to AppleTV, sharing files with friends and family across the country in such a down right unrealistically simple fashion, this is one device to add to your home network.

Recently, I got the chance to play with Akitio’s MyCloud Mini. Initially, I was fairly impressed with the ease of setup. The drive popped in with ease and the little server was up and running on my network in no time. Read More...

I knew the team that designed put a lot of thought into the design and management of the device. I have only touched the surface of what this server can do and amazed what it does at the price point. Read More...

The mounting of the drives is menu driven and works quite intuitively. Once configured the device was easily addressable by the network and the PC and Xbox. We also tested connecting to the device from a Galaxy Tab which had Android OS loaded. The app was easy to install and allowed for wireless access to the device for the both the videos and stills.

This device basically lets you host media on your network and share it anywhere you would like. So basically it lets you have your own mini cloud at home for media and document sharing. Pretty cool right? Read More...

Sure, you could leave your home PC on 24/7, but this discrete device consumes significantly less energy. Plus, many Smart TVs (like the Sharp AQUOS line, for example) don’t include apps like Box.net or DropBox, giving the Akitio MyCloud Mini an edge. Read More...
