Western Digital Black 4TB Hard Drive Review
     Thu, Dec 20 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been a long year of HDD supply shortages and wacky premiums, but things are finally stabilizing and new designs are trickling out of drive makers. Recently WD expanded its flagship Black series with a 4TB model, meant to deliver a balance between speed, capacity and price. At ~$350, a Black 4TB drive is slightly cheaper than a pair of WD Black 2TB drives and much more affordable than the previously released enterprise WD RE 4TB drive. Given that we've been spoiled by SSDs over the last few years, we don't expect to be blown away by the new drive's blistering speed, but it should be fun comparing its performance with other terabyte-plus hard drives if ample capacity is what you're after...

Corsair Neutron GTX 120GB SSD Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Dec 20 2012 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Equipped with Link-A Media Device`s latest controller, the Corsair Neutron GTX 120GB comes in poised to take on not only the competition, but many larger drives as well. The Corsair GTX 120GB SSD doesn`t shy away from incompressible data like many other drives, and keeps its speeds regardless of data type. The speeds of the Neutron GTX 120GB are not shy, either, with 550MB/s read and 330MB/s write. IOPS permance is over 80k at 4k aligned, with no degredation due to data type. To take advantage of the performance, the Neutron GTX 120GB uses a SATA 6.0Gb/s interface and is backwars compatible to SATA I and SATA II. For ultrabook users the Neutron GTX fits into the new 7mm form factor while still offering enthusiast class performance. Corsair backs the Neutron GTX 120GB SSD with a five year warranty."

Patriot Gauntlet 320 Wireless Portable Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 10:24A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the popularity of smart phones and tablets, the need expanded storage to house numerous large media files has increased. A big problem is, many tablets and phones (Apple devices in particular) lack the functionality to add additional capacity via media cards, etc. and upgrading to larger capacities is very expensive as compared to adding external storage. This leaves many buyers in a quandary of spending less and hoping they don`t need the space, or splurging for the larger capacity models with a premium price tag. Patriot has recognized this dilemma and decided the answer the knock of opportunity by designing a device to give consumers another option. The Patriot Gauntlet 320 wireless portable drive allows users of iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire to access content stored on the drive wirelessly through an app that can be downloaded for free..."

Intel DC S3700 Data Center SSD Review (200/800GB)
     Thu, Dec 13 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months back, we randomly heard three words during a passing conversation; Intel, Taylorsville, and latency. That was it; no context, no explanation and no hints. Given that we happened to be at the Flash Memory Summit, it was a safe bet that something solid state was afoot, but at the time these were just random words to file away for later. During a phone call with Intel a few weeks later, it all made sense.

WD My Passport Edge External Hard Drive Review
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When USB flash drives first came to market it was a revolution. They offered much larger storage capacity compared to floppy disks, packaged in something about the size of a person’s thumb. Suddenly, you could just save your papers, presentations, and even a smattering of photos onto a little flash drive and safely take it with you anywhere. Times have changed, obviously, with the advent of cloud-based storage solutions like Dropbox, but portable storage on a physical device is still as necessary as ever, especially when you need a substantial amount of available capacity for backup purposes. External hard drives are the ticket here, and Western Digital has a teeny-tiny one that offers 500GB of storage in a form factor that fits in your pants pocket with relative ease…
