Asustek to offer Wi-Fi case for hard drives

Taiwanese hardware maker Asustek Computer Inc. will launch in May a hard-drive case that can be accessed over high-speed 802.11g wireless networks, the company said at the Cebit exhibition in Hanover, Germany.

Asustek's WL-HDD hard-drive case holds a 2.5-inch hard-disk drive and supports the Ultra DMA/100 interface. The hard drive can be accessed wirelessly by the case's integrated dual-mode 802.11b/g interface, which offers a maximum bandwidth of 54M bits per second (bps). The case also has two 10/100 Ethernet ports.

The WL-HDD has a Web-based management interface that allows users to control access to the disk-drive. Files can be shared freely or limited to users with a password. Users can also limit access to alter files by permitting only read-access to the files on the disk.

The WL-HDD will be available worldwide in May and will be priced around US$150, the company said.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
