Our take on the Fusion Research Expansion Hard Drive

by Steve Kindig
Fusion

This expansion drive is a 4TB external hard drive that connects to the Fusion Research Rocket Movie Server via a USB connection, allowing you to add movie storage capacity. It comes pre-loaded with special software which allows it to seamlessly communicate with the Rocket server.

You will need to call or email Fusion Research to have the drive activated once it is connected to the server. This drive should increase storage capacity by approximately 550 DVDs or 125 Blu-rays. You can add multiple expansion drives to keep up with your collection as it grows.

Fusion Expansion Hard Drive

Written By problemchild, Salt Lake City, UT on Monday, September 09, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Easy to set up. Additional connections are needed and they have to log into the system to activate the license. This was a small pain. They did not let me know when the process was complete.
Pros:
Easy to set it up. Great value
Cons:
Fusion needed to sign into the server to activate the license. This was a small inconvenience.
