DEAL OF THE DAY - Maxtor Ultra 200GB ATA Hard Drive for Only $39.98 after Rebate with FREE Shipping!

By: Array

Deal of the Day details:

 

Offer: A few nice hard drive deals. The Maxtor 200GB ATA drive is great for those of you who have older computers (basically not S-ATA drives) and want to upgrade. Great for the parent's computer (like I've done because they don't care for the latest and greatest) or that old office unit. They've also got a 250GB external hard drive for only $79.98 which is the lowest I've seen it. Everything is set to expire on 2/2407, but I don't think these will last that long.

The primary is that it is a form of electric storage, I.e. there is no mechanics which can fail or introduce delays. The SSD units which are made today commonly use NAND flash for storage, which results in both fast access times and relatively good transfer rates. But regular flash memory works as well and this is something GeekStuff4U has taken advantage of. It has namely launched "SD to SSD."

By: Array

The folks at Sharkoon in Germany have just come out with a new product which allows you to connect up most recent IDE or SATA hard drives directly to your system via USB and nifty adapter.

 

I've personally had use such devices many times before when needing to move data from a desktop hard drive to my notebook.

 


 

Sharkoon is presenting a simple solution for users who need quick access to the data on their de-installed hard drives, or who want to be able to alternate easily between several data mediums. The Sharkoon DriveLink lets users connect hard drives of all current formats directly to a PC or notebook without the trouble of having to first install them in an external HDD case. The external hard drive adapter offers an interface for both IDE and SATA drives in sizes 2.5", 3.5", and 5.25", and connects simply to a USB port to allow data access. The hard drive connected to the DriveLink is supplied with power by the included power adapter.

 

The Sharkoon DriveLink doesn't just provide a time-saving way to read out data, but also offers a convenient back-up function. Data can be saved and synchronized with the push of a button, and the back-up settings can be entered beforehand using the included software. So that the externally operated hard drive isn't left completely unprotected and users don't have to worry about accidentally damaging sensitive components, Sharkoon also delivers two sturdy silicon frames for 2.5" and 3.5" hard drives. The drives can simply be inserted into the handy cover, where they are securely protected against shocks and vibrations and easier to handle.

Plextor Denies Rumor of Optical Storage Pullout

By: Array

I had a feeling this was the case. Rumour spread quickly not long ago in relation to Plextor having decided to stop production of what they do best, optical storage. However as per this article over at the DailyTech today, they've confirmed it not to be true.

 

I'm sure many of you would be glad to hear this, given their solid reputation and quality of their drives.

 



Plextor LLC today announced it would not exit the optical drive market despite earlier confusion with a press release issued by its parent company, Shinano Kenshi. While Shinano Kenshi announced a new corporate reorganization plan, Plextor optical drives will continually be available in North and South American markets.

 

Toru Nakazawa, president of Plextor LLC's USA operations stated, "This announcement by Shinano Kenshi will have no material affect on the operations of Plextor LLC, as we already completed a corporate reorganization in North and South America last year. Our business will continue as usual."
