We Made a BIG Mistake

On November 17, 2021, we launched a giveaway to win one of four (4) SecureData Hardware Encrypted Drives. To enter for your chance to win, we asked you to send an email with your name and email address to a specific address.

We have now discovered that there was an error in the email address link. As a result, we suspect that many of the entries did not get received as intended.

In order to give everyone an equal chance of winning, we are resetting the giveaway and will set a new entry period, which is December 15, 2021 to January 15, 2022.

We sincerely apologize for this mistake and feel the only fair thing to do is start the giveaway over. Since no winners had been selected, everyone will again have an equal chance of wining.

The full details of the giveaway, with the updated entry dates is below.

Over the past few weeks, we have reviewed several hardware encrypted drives from SecureData, (check out all of our reviews here).

With the holidays fast approaching, the folks at SecureData have asked us to do a giveaway of the four (4) drives we reviewed, and we are delighted to help.

    Dear ATT, I have purchased the fabulous Epson EcoTank 8500 that you recently reviewed. I so appreciate your bringing this great product to my attention and giving the careful cost breakdown to make the price tag become reasonable. I am using it to print digital scrapbook pages on photo paper and the results are wonderful. I was originally printed these pages made on Canva.com on my inexpensive all purpose printer and the pages were washed out and so disappointing. Now with the Epson printer, the pages are bright and vivid as they appear on my monitor. Many thanks.
