Ultra Stackables Conclusion
With all the different computer accessories out on the market, USB hubs, external enclosures, and media readers are almost always mismatched and look rather ugly when all connected. Ultra Products has solved this problem with the Stackables. These small little accessories, great for the storage junkie on the go, have proven to be quite on par with other accessories, with the added bonus of looks.
All units tested performed as well as one can expect, and therefore would be a great addition to any setup. I personally found these to perform quite well and were very convenient when transferring files or bringing pictures and other files anywhere I went. They aren't particularly portable in the size department, but just because they won't fit in your pocket doesn't mean they can't be moved around. The media reader was great for uploading pictures onto my PC, and it really could take just about any kind of portable media you could imagine. Everything was USB 2.0 compatible for maximum compatibility with all systems, and Windows 98 drivers were even included.
The Stackables can be bought from Ultra, and the price varies depending on what setup you want, but the setup reviewed costs a total of about $220, and they don't seem to be readily available in the UK as of yet.
- Matching so they all fit in on our desk.
- Great eSATA performance
- Great for use on the go.
- Media reader reads almost all kinds of portable media, and includes a USB hub.
- Customizable to your personal needs and taste.
- Perfomance on par with other accessories of their type.
- SATA enclosure wasn't always consistent during general use.
- PSU did not match the other Stackables.
