Early adopters who have gone the USB 3.0 route can consider the WD My Passport Essential SE portable HDD, which support both USB 3.0 and 2.0. It comes in a capacity of 750GB and goes for $89.90.



This WD home network drive, My Book Live comes in 2TB and 3TB models and at these prices. WD also has a 1TB model that's going for $149.90 at the PC Show.

Aztech

Looking to extend your Wi-Fi range in your home or work around blind spots in your house? Aztech has you covered.


Aztech's HomePlug AV Pass Through (HL110EP) allows you to plug in another electrical device into its socket so the HomePlug won't be the only device hogging all the electricity. $49 for a single unit and in a dose of double happiness, costs $90.



The Mini HomePlug Ethernet Adapter (HL112E) will cost the same as the larger AV Pass Through version, but without the convenience of connecting any other device for power. $49 a pop or $90 for two. It allows you to use any power socket as an Ethernet port, but take note, you need one for your modem to connect to first.


The HomePlug Wireles-N Extender (HL110EW) will set you back $79, so why not get the HomePlug AV Pass Through with it for a $119 deal?

What is the difference between these 2 besides one is USB 3 and another usb2?

Does Buffalo sell HD-PNTU3 Series this PC Show?

Homeplug works like a portable access point.

So from a home plug to a pc it uses ethernet cable ah? Yes.

Connection from main homeplug to another homeplug is thru wireless? No, through the power lines, still wired in a sense.

Different homeplugs will sync with the homeplug that is connected by ethernet cable to your router.
