TransImp Hard Drive Dock Plus
     Thu, Jun 02 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many companies make hard drive docks and we personally have reviewed at least a dozen. A few months back we reviewed one of MUKii's first dock models. It turned out to be a great unit that performed well and still looked good while doing it. MUKii has decided to give that model a refresher and now have came out with an improved version. Similar to their hard drive enclosure (which we also just reviewed), this new model has a small LCD readout that displays the real time transfer speeds to and from the drive when accessed.

Posted by: STAFF
"If Icy Dock MB994SP-4S is offering more than what you require then Icy Dock MB991IK-B is another alternative solution for you. In short Icy Dock MB991IK-B could be considered as a simplified version of Icy Dock MB994SP-4S which is only able to support a single 2.5" drive bay in 3.5" form factor instead of quad drive bays supportability in 5.25" form factor."

Western Digital My Passport Essential SE 1TB USB 3.0 HDD Review
     Sat, May 28 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Consumers have a lot of choices when it comes to portable storage products. When shopping it is important to look for a drive that is easy to use, comes with an abundant amount of features and protects the drive inside very well. All of those features can be found in the Western Digital My Passport Series of products. You don't have to take my word for it; Western Digital currently holds the title as the number one seller of external hard drives by volume with their My Passport Series. The Western Digital My Passport Essential SE is the latest addition to the Series and brings a colourful entry to the normally boring world of portable storage. With four colour options available; blue, red, silver and black, you can choose what goes best with that new purse. The choices don't stop there; the My Passport Essential SE is also available in 1TB or 750GB capacity sizes."

The MIL-SPEC S5 SSD is currently available in 16 GB-128 GB capacities, and with 256 GB and 512 GB models in development, is ready for long-term exposure to extreme levels of humidity, wide temperature ranges, intense shock and vibration, and high altitude.

Intel series 320 SSD review
     Mon, May 23 2011 | 12:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Intel series 320 SSD. Armed with cheaper NAND flash memory this drive competes at the middle segment tagged with a decent price. But will it be enough to compete with the competition ? A product that offers performance somewhere in-between SATA 2 based Indilinx and SandForce 1200 based products, but at a more attractive price, at least that is the theory. The dynamic is interesting as the performance results today of the 320 series SSD will seem "so 2010", but it's an interesting concept as with cheaper memory, you can increase in volume size hence the review today is based on a dashing 300 GB SSD.

Posted by: STAFF
"I’ve got another hard drive for review today; it’s another Seagate model 7200.12 but it’s a slim style drive, it’s only one inch thick. The drive runs quiet and cool and it’s a decent performer, it would be great for an HTPC, or anywhere a smaller drive is needed. "
