Green-House unveils three USB 3.0 External SSD Drives in Japan

Posted in SSD by Conner Flynn on July 14th, 2011

Green-House has a trio of new external SSDs arriving by the end of the month. Arriving in Japan anyway. These drives come in three sizes, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB and you can expect USB 3.0 connectivity along with a 220MB/s read speed and 180MB/s write speed.

Those of you with USB 3.0 ports will feel the need for speed as you transfer files much faster. They cost the equivalent of $339, $503 and $997. Speed kills…the wallet.

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on November 29th, 2010

TRON: Legacy is coming out very soon so the TRON memorabilia is everywhere right now. These TRON Light Cycle USb drives are available in both 4GB and 8GB capacities and are available in both white and black. We love drives like this, because they display nicely and don’t just store data and look boring.

As a bonus, the wheel base flashes. It wouldn’t be TRON without the lights. The 4GB drive will cost you $25 and it’s $35 for the 8GB version.

Seagate stuffs 3TB drives in BlackArmor NAS box

Posted in Seagate by Conner Flynn on October 3rd, 2010

Seems like just yesterday that an entire network attached storage box held just 3TB all told, but now Seagate boasts that capacity with a single five-platter drive, and so the NAS are getting larger as well. Seagate has added its 3TB drive to the 2- and 4-slot BlackArmor NAS boxes, taking capacity up to 12TB.

Both systems will come pre-populated with 3TB drives in each bay. The BlackArmor NAS 440 is configured with RAID 5 and ships with 10 backup software licenses right out-of-the-box, while the NAS 220 ships with RAID 1 configuration for automatic data mirroring and five backup software licenses.

Segway company owner dies, drives Segway off a cliff

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on September 27th, 2010

The current owner of Segway died yesterday after he rode off a cliff and into a river in England. They found Jimi Heselden’s body yesterday at 11.40am yesterday by the River Wharfe in North Yorkshire, with his X2 Adventure with him.

Jimi was 62. Police think it was just a weird accident. The man was worth $262m though. And Segways don’t go so fast that he wouldn’t see the cliff coming. Well, however it happened, it’s a sad turn of events.

Is a Firmware Update killing PS3 Blu-Ray drives?

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2010

Say it ain’t so. Could a firmware update lead to the untimely death of your PS3’s Blu-Ray drive? Maybe. The actual cause is still unconfirmed, but many users over at the Playstation forums are reporting problems with Modern Warfare 2 after updating their consoles to the 3.10 firmware.

They’re experiencing freezing while playing the game, and then after checking, experiencing more freezing in other games too. Speculation is that the firmware has somehow affected the Blu-ray drives. There isn’t any official answer yet, but you may want to pay close atention to how your Playstation 3 is acting when you update and just after.

3TB drives coming soon

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2009

3TB drives coming soonIf you’ve been wondering when we might see 3TB drives arriving, the answer is soon. At least according to Dr Geoff Barrall, founder and CEO of Drobo. He says that Drobos will be offering a 3TB drive by April 2010. Drobo uses Western Digital drives, so there’s a good chance that it could mean that Western Digital will be outing some 3TB drives of their own very soon.

Currently Western Digital offers a 2TB Caviar Black 3.5-inch SATA drive. A 3TB, 4-platter drive would need 750GB per platter – a 50 per cent increase over what the Caviar Black has.


Western Digital USB drives now display info

Posted in Western Digital by Conner Flynn on October 6th, 2009

Western Digital USB drives now display infoIt took them awhile, but drive makers are finally getting hip to the fact that we would like to see how much disk space is left without having to plug it in. About time. Western Digital’s My Book Elite and My Book Studio drives now feature labels on the outside displaying that always-on info.

That means even when it isn’t plugged in, you’ll get a 12 character label, and a second line that displays how much space is left on the disc. In both gigabytes and a graph no less. Simple solution huh? The USB 2TB My Book Elite is $280, and the 2TB My Book Studio with FireWire 800 and USB connectivity is $300.

Touch-sensitive LaCie Starck drives

Posted in Storage by Conner Flynn on October 6th, 2009

Touch-sensitive LaCie Starck drivesThe new LaCie Starck drives are super sexy and look like melting chrome. Has storage ever been this sensuous? They were designed by Philippe Starck. The pair come in the form of the LaCie Starck Mobile Hard Drive and Desktop Hard Drive.

Some features include an LED indicator in the shape of Starck’s sign that is projected onto the table, and the fact that the surface is touch sensitive, so you can assign actions to different kinds of touch. For instance, a tap will trigger the launch of an application, while a caress can start an automatic backup.

World Cup Soccer Players USB drives

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2009

World Cup Soccer Players USB drivesSome call it soccer, others call it football. Some just know it as that sport they played once that got them kicked in the groin. Whatever you call it in your country, it’s a little known fact that the heads of these athletes are removable and store data.

How do you think they come up with their game plan in the locker room? Did you think the coach simply talks to them while pointing a stick at a chalkboard? No, that would be silly. Instead, each 1 GB player removes his head and plugs himself into a port, becoming part of the team “collective” and downloading game plans. Their endgame? World domination with Pele as their new God.

Super Mario World USB drives

Super Mario World USB drivesHow we wish that Nintendo would get it together and offer these 4GB drives officially. Sigh. But at least they’re available on Etsy for $55 each. The Mario Brick comes in six feet varieties and costs only $19. There’s also Koopa, Goomba and the mushroom.

Sure, it’s a hefty price, but where else are you going to get one? Plus they are hand crafted with love and star-power, in a small cottage within the Mushroom Kingdom.
