OCZ Technology seems to always be toiling away on new solid state drives, but it's rare to find any from the company that are priced for the average Joe / Jane. Rather than aiming specifically for the fat-walleted enthusiast crowd, the Agility series is hoping to make a decent sized splash in the mainstream market. These 2.5-inch SATA II SSDs promise 230MB/sec read and 135MB/sec write speeds, alo Read More »

What a difference a year makes, right? Right around 12 months after Western Digital outed its 2TB My Book Studio Edition II, the company has come forward with a new edition that houses twice the storage. The dual-drive device includes a pair of those minty fresh 2TB HDDs arranged in a RAID 0 configuration, and WD promises that it'll play nice with both Macs and PCs. As for connectivity, you'll ge Read More »

The last time InnoDisk made waves, it was just about this time last year with its 128GB FiD 2.5-inch SATA 10000 SSD. At this year's Computex, the company was showcasing yet another new storage model: the 128GB SATA nanoSSD. The tiny device was even strapped onto a motherboard that was vibrating out of control in order to show its resistance to the shakes, which honestly, is the most provocative a Read More »

Good show, Kingston. Rather than just getting into the SSD game to follow everyone else around, you've decided to spin things a little differently -- and yeah, we dig it. Here at Computex, the company has just introduced its SSDNow V series bundles, which aim directly at mainstream consumers who need a helping hand in making the leap from HDD to SSD. Said kits arrive in 128GB and 64GB capacities, Read More »

By Andrew LiszewskiIf you’re looking for an extremely stripped down way to play media files on a hard drive through your HDTV, this SATA hard drive adapter from Brando is as simple as it’s ever going to get. (Until hard drives themselves get an HDMI connector that is.) It functions like a standard SATA USB adapter, allowing you to connect either a 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch SATA hard drive Read More »

The announcement wasn't scheduled for a few more days -- four according to the teaser site -- but it looks like Alienware's All Powerful gaming laptop has been set free anyway. So, does it live up to the claim? Pretty much... how does a pair of 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M GPUs strike you? No Core i7 listed, instead we're looking at a Core 2 Extreme quad-core CPU at the top end with up to 8GB of 1 Read More »

By Andrew LiszewskiI like this idea. Sanwa has taken your normal, everyday USB flash drive and simply added an eSata connector to the other end, allowing for transfer speeds of up to 75MB/sec if your PC happens to have an external eSata port. The flash drives, which not surprisingly are only available in Japan, will come in 16 & 32GB capacities and will hopefully not cost much more than a si Read More »

Well, it sure took 'em long enough. In August of last year, the Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO) got us all hot and bothered when it introduced the SATA Revision 3.0 specification to double transfer speeds to 6Gbps. It's taken until today, however, for that very specification to be completed and released. Thankfully for those who love to relish in the past, the new spec is backward Read More »

By Shane McGlaunI have yet to jump on the SSD bandwagon and most consumers are probably the same way. I have tested netbooks with SSDs inside and while the performance gains installing applications and booting the systems are noticeable, they aren’t enough to justify the extra cost in my book.The price of SSDs is coming down, albeit slowly. Kingston has a new SSD upgrade kit that is now ava Read More »
