Our first look at the products Sony announced at CES reveals additional details and impresses us anew.
Sure, you could buy a utility to ease the task of finding duplicate files or organizing your multimedia, but Windows Explorer is quite good at it in its own right.
Apricorn has taken the Aegis Secure Key 3.0 and made it smaller, less expensive, and more easily configurable in batches with a $99 USB configuration hub.
If you have a webcam without a vendor web portal, you can still view it while on the road. Here's how.
For a NAS box with a boatload of software features and top-notch performance, the WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra is amazingly affordable.
QNAP's TS-251A NAS has the ability to output video directly to an external 1080 display and is a great media streamer. The advertised on-the-fly 4K transcoding, on the other hand, proved to be weak.
TerraMaster's FS-220 is relatively new to the NAS category, but it's a great performer with a promising interface.
With a boatload of pro features and excellent performance, this is a box better suited for the small office than the home, but it streams as smoothly as any of its rivals.
Seagate's Personal Cloud 3TB NAS is only a single-bay NAS, but $140 for 3TB of storage and advanced software features is a steal.
Zyxel's NAS520 is an affordable NAS box with good streaming and backup features, but it's a bit less refined than mainstream users would want.
If you rip and library your own content, there's no easier way to store it or stream it about the house than a NAS box. These versatile storage devices also server as the perfect personal, secure cloud for backing up your PCs and devices.
Synology's DS216play NAS is a middling performer, but there's no better NAS box available for media streaming and 4K transcoding.
Garmin's Dash Cam 35 offers great day and night video in a form factor that's neither too small nor too big. It's a little higher-priced than the competition, though.
Thinkware's F770 is unique for shifting its video viewing and settings largely to your smartphone. For the price, it offers the full list of features and is easy to use.
Cobra's CDR895D Drive HD is a dual-channel dash cam with near 360-degree coverage and a surprisingly affordable price.
