I ran the tiny drive through a battery of tests. It passed with flying colors.

The OWC MiniStack STX is just the right size to stack with a Mac mini. The hub adds three Thunderbolt 4/USB-C ports that can be hooked to high-resolution displays and external drives.

It also includes bays for SATA and/or NVMe M.2 drives. That’s space for up to 18TB of storage. Install your own drives or buy them from OWC.

I put the powerful accessory for Mac or iPad to the test over several weeks of daily use.

Cloud storage is great, but like any technology, it has a time and place. When you want guaranteed storage that doesn’t require an internet connection to access, what you really need is a good external drive.

This 2TB portable SSD keeps your data close and your devices unclogged. And for a limited time, it costs just $29.99.

BTW, that price is so unbelievably low that this SSD quickly sold out the last time we offered it. But it’s back in stock now … while supplies (and this deal) last!

I used KYY’s monitor for a couple of weeks. Here’s why I find it surprisingly good.
