  • I work for Microsoft here in Sydney. I asked my colleagues for a good place to hire a laptop for a few weeks, and about ten people got back to me in minutes to say that "Hire Intelligence" was well-known and a regular, reliable supplier to Microsoft. So your reputation is pretty good! Also, Sydney University was exceptionally pleased with the service and deal they received from Hire Intelligence! The Institute used the laptop tonight for the first time, and it was a great success. Many thanks for your help; I will certainly recommend Hire Intelligence very highly to friends and colleagues.

  • I would like to thank you and your colleagues for the rental of the laptops. They are part of a very important project for us and they went like a dream. Kind regards and we shall speak again in 12 months!

  • The sales people were very helpful as I needed equipment at 17h15 on a Friday and they waited until I was able to pick up the equipment at 18h10! Very much appreciated.

  • In a competitive media world, the pressure on IT groups to perform and produce results are high. Time is money and lack of delivery by us, can result in poor ratings, consumer switching to other networks and advertisers following in suit. Part of the solution to get an edge on the competitors, are to cement relationships with IT vendors so that both parties have an understanding of business requirements, expectations and look for a ROI on the service or purchase. Hire Intelligence are one of Channel 7's important IT partners who provide IT hire equipment and services to our media network throughout Australia. They continually "make it happen" at the last minute, with a personalised service, that ensures end user requirements are meet. This is often "same" day throughout Australia and usually is a large number of hires. We have never experienced the word "no" to a request. These requests can include non standard boxes which Hire do not provide and they can still provide delivery of the product, within a very short timeframe. Hire Intelligence also have excellent technical support on their equipment and a management team who are not just "sales people", who oversee the entire order from quote to delivery. I have no hesitation in the recommendation of Hire Intelligence as an excellent partner and supplier of IT Hire equipment and services to you.

DDS-3 SCSI tape drive is considered among one of the best reliable standard tape drive. Selecting SCSI cards and connectors is an important process in its precise and correct usage. Ideally, a SCSI controller card that supports the product being connected to it should be used. Some cards designed only to support devices such as CD-ROMs, CD-RWs, or scanners. The controller card standard, bus width and speed should also be properly matched to the devices and cables. The DDS format competes mainly against the LTO, AIT, VXA, and Travan formats.
