It seems like each time I get a new game console or computer it feels like I will never use all the storage space on the hard drive. Then before I know it, I am having to decide what I want to ditch to get enough space on the drive for new items.
Western Digital has announced a new high-capacity hard drive that slots into its existing Black series lineup. The hard drive should offer more than enough capacity for all ofyour torrented episodes of Doctor Who and your cat memes.
If your Xbox 360 needs more storage space for downloaded games, movies and other content, a new, bigger hard drive is on the way. The new HDD will connect to your game console easily. The drive is also priced reasonably at $129.99 (USD) MSRP.
Hitachi GST has a new hard drive series that is a very thin and power-efficient. It crams 1TB of storage space onto a slim hard drive with a single platter. The drive is offered in other capacities and will be available in Deskstar and CinemaStar versions.
It always baffles me when people opt for those lightweight, portable, and small hard drive enclosures. Don’t get me wrong, they are easily portable, but there’s one thing that you should know: fast hard drives can generate a lot of heat, and if you external hard drive will be on for hours, then it’s best to get one with fans.
I think that all computer users need an external HDD to back their data up to. If you are like me and haven’t taken a picture on film in years, you probably have a drive inside your computer full of pics that you can’t replace if they get lost in a crash.
I have talked about the cool Flash Rods flash drives before. These things are handmade and put flash storage into Hot Wheels cars, making for one really cool flash drive. Flash rods also makes larger external HDDs for the desk as well – and the latest from the company is awesome.
I have a bunch of old HDDs in my desk that have data on them I don’t want to trash and don’t want on my current computer. If I want to get the data from those drives, as it is I need an external enclosure or to open my computer up and install the drive.
