Cloud Hybrid

The coolest part of the Cloud Hybrid is having the ability to stream digital content to your phone or tablet device. I personally hate synching up my iPhone and iPad to my desktop. It’s just such a cumbersome process. All you need is the free mobile app (iPhone, iPad and Android apps available) to fire up the connection. You can access the network drive from a web browser (at MyAKiTiO.com), local network or remotely. Read More...

Neutrino U3+

The benefit of this enclosure case is its beauty. It just looks great. Although the performance of the drive will vary with the type of bare drive that you choose to put into the case, the option of USB 3.0 and FW800 (9pin) will make moving forward with this enclosure easy. It's well designed and sturdy - providing good seating for your drive, and adequate screws to secure the case once closed. It’s easy enough to turn any 2.5″ drive into a portable USB/Firewire hard drive. All it requires is a bit of light screwdriving. Read More...

Neutrino U3+

The AKiTiO Neutrino U3+ is a hard drive enclosure for 2.5″ (laptop-sized) drives. It has a very industrial look that would look nice next to a Mac Pro. It’s built of a real aluminum housing that uses a large heatsink for passive cooling (no fans). It’s easy enough to turn any 2.5″ drive into a portable USB/Firewire hard drive. All it requires is a bit of light screwdriving.

Cloud Hybrid

What I really liked was the cloud capabilities of the AKiTiO Cloud Hybrid. Having the ability to connect to my drive from any internet device at anytime was cool. I know there are services out there that allow you to do this and some routers are now adding in the same functions, but having an always on NAS storage device was really nice. Read More...

Cloud Hybrid

Safe­ty and per­for­mance. Those are of­ten the trade-offs with ex­ter­nal stor­age, since hav­ing a disk near­by speeds up ac­cess, but in­creas­es the risk of fail­ure or dam­age or theft. Mov­ing your da­ta in­to the cloud is safer, since there are typ­i­cal­ly mul­ti­ple man­aged back­ups, but mov­ing larg­er files can take for­ev­er. Blend­ing both of these is a good idea, and we're start­ing to see more and more de­vices come with cloud op­tions. Read More...

Cloud Hybrid

Once we plugged a drive in and screwed it down, we then connected the gigabit Ethernet port to a nearby switch and went to http://myakitio.com/ to continue setup. There is nothing better to drive home the point that this drive is now a server with cloud capabilities than to go to a website to manage it rather than a direct connection. We entered the MAC address of our Hybrid (found on the sticker with the serial number) and the login portal had no trouble finding it. Read More...

MyCloud Mini

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...

Cloud Hybrid

A lot of those computer terms may scare the beginner, but do not let the terms scare you, breaking it down what you have is a fully capable storage device that simply can be connected to by nearly any device in your home. The best part is you can connect to the device when you are away from home via your mobile phone or computer. They make it real easy you just go to myakitio.com login with username and password and you have access to all of the devices files. Read More...

MyCloud Mini

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.
