If you’re reading this it’s a good bet that you have a PC. Either that or you’re at the library or school and probably should be studying instead of reading product reviews - but I digress. If you’re like me, you have lots of music and data files that would make life difficult if they suddenly up and disappeared. I was thinking of that possibility when ADS Tech sent me an interesting product for review. The USB 2.0 SimpleTOUCH HDKit is a simple USB 2.0 enclosure that is designed to hold just about any size ATA-IDE, Ultra DMA, or AT-6 hard disk. It also has a feature which includes a backup function that can be activated with the push of a button. I like the concept. It’s simple (now that’s an aptly-named product) and it makes sense. Now it was my job to test it out and see if it held up under my kind of use.
