Unboxing Live 140: Drobo 5N NAS

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Networking, PC, Robots, Videocasts

The Drobo 5N is the latest network-attached storage device from the folks at Data Robotics. We are big Drobo fans at Gear Live, and we decided to move from the previous Drobo NAS, the Drobo FS, over to the newer Drobo 5N.

The 5N has 5 drive bays, allowing you to choose single or dual drive failure modes. This means that you can have either one or two drives completely fail, and still keep all of the data that is stored on the Drobo.

We open it up and give you a look. If you like wha tyou see, you can pick up your own Drobo 5N.

Unboxing Live 130: Fitbit Force

The Fitbit Force is, in my opinion, the best FitBit to date. All the power of the Fitbit One, but strapped to your wrist with a nice OLED display (unlike the Fitbit Flex.) The Fitbit One is a great fitness tracker, but it's small enough to lose easily. Having the Fitbit Force on your wrist is just super convenient. The battery lasts over a week as well. We give you a look at the package and what's included with the Fitbit Force in this episode.

You can pick up the Fitbit Force now.

Unboxing Live 128: Exclusive! White Xbox One “I Made This” edition

We give you an exclusive look at the white Xbox One! Microsoft built about 3,000 of these unique "I Made This" edition of the Xbox One, and gave them out to employees who worked on the Xbox One prior to launch as a thank you gift. In the box is the white Xbox One, black Kinect, black standard controller, Day One edition achievement, and all the other stuff you'd expect. In addition, Microsoft gave a custom white "I Made This" controller for the Xbox One as well, which features a soft-touch feel rather than the solid matte black plastic feel of the controller.

Of course, we already gave you a look at the standard black Xbox One console as well.
