In some alternate world, Fabrik’s SimpleTech Redrive is winning a Kick Ass award from Green PC—Maximum PC’s eco-conscious sister publication. This is the most environmentally friendly external storage device we’ve ever tested. From its packaging, to its construction, to its guts, the Redrive is designed with a single purpose in mind: saving the planet. As a byproduct of this, the drive saves you energy and, consequently, money.
We thought only Western Digital was dipping drives into the Skittles
rainbow, but SimpleTech’s new line of USB drives are just as colorful
as their Western Digital counterparts. The devices in the Signature
Mini line range in capacity from 120GB to 320GB and come in seven
colors. We tested the 250GB Mini Kiwi, a 5,400rpm, 2.5-inch drive
that’s one of the fastest portable storage devices we’ve reviewed.
