    Verbatim Covers A Portable Hard Drive In Leather


    Here’s something sure to anger the PETA crowd; Verbatim took an external hard drive, and covered it with leather. Who would of thought of such a thing? Verbatim is holding out on us as far as cost, but we do know it’ll be available in 320GB or 500GB and either black or brown leather. It includes Nero BackItUp and Burn and Turbo USB software.

  • Review: Iomega Skin External Hard Drive

    Review: Iomega Skin External Hard Drive

    Short version: It’s an external hard drive, decorated by designer Al Borda. Iomega is hoping to capture the college market by providing an alternative to the plain old box external drive. It’s a quality drive, and while the decorative touches may not be for everyone, a 500GB external drive for less than $100 isn’t a bad deal. Read More

    Form over function: Brinell Purestorage external drives

    I understand the desire to have your computer stuff look good, really I do. But things like this are just silly to me. They are obviously pointed at a market that doesn’t know any better, and buy things based on the appearance rather then the functionality. Brinell, the company that makes these fancy veneer clad drives, has even won a couple of design awards for their form over function. Read More

    Buffalo announces two Sony-licensed external HDDs for the PS3

    We covered a slick new external HDD presented by Buffalo Japan just a few days ago, and now the same company announced [JP] the same HD-AV2.0TU2 (pictured above) was “officially licensed” by Sony as a PS3-compatible hard disc. The HDD is joined by another model, the HD-CL500U2/SC, which also received the green light from big S. Read More

    Buffalo Japan sells very pretty external HDD

    If you ever wanted to watch movies stored on your computer (you know, the ones you legally downloaded from the web earlier) in style, Buffalo might have the right device for you. Their HD-AV2.0TU2 [JP], an external HDD, is currently Japan-only, but the company sells a good number of external storage solutions in other countries, for example the US, too (which means this new HDD might… Read More

  • Nintendo planning USB devices for the Wii

    Nintendo planning USB devices for the Wii

    Nintendo of America just posted a job opening on its website for a “Software/Hardware Tester”. Among the job’s responsibilities was creating a plan to bring USB devices to the Wii. It was reported that the job posted 3 days ago on Nintendo.com, but when I went there today I couldn’t find it. At this time Nintendo has not publicly mentioned that is has plans to bring… Read More

    Lite-On External Optical Drive looks slick, writes fast

    I don’t know about you guys, but I think burning a bunch of discs is a hassle. When you have to put out 15 identical DVDs for a holiday party, a presentation, or whatnot, it becomes a real task to keep that Nero or Toast happy while you keep switching out blanks. Not to mention, if you’re paranoid like me, you’re worried about jitter errors or buffer underruns if your… Read More

    ASUS Xonar U1 external USB audio scrubber

    These look like very old-school flying saucers, the broken down wobbly ones that low-income aliens fly. To be fair, such technology is still far more advanced than tooling around in a Honda Element all day, so let’s cut poor Zanzork some slack. Anyway, in a desperate attempt to get back on track I’d like to tell you that the devices listed above are not spacecraft. They are… Read More

Yes, they are pretty. The drives comes in flavors of 80GB with a silver paint job, 120GB with a titanium paint job and 160GB with the cobalt blue just for you. USB 2.0 and 1.1 support and… Read More

    Toshiba Enters Portable Hard Drive Market

    Having a cluttered desk can suck. So purchasing space-saving electronics can really be a key factor in keeping tidy. Toshiba’s new hard drives are less than an inch thick and smaller than a 4×6 photo. Other than a small size, they’re the same as any other external hard disk. You know, USB 2.0, sleek case, and semi-low price point. You’ll be able to nab the 100GB version… Read More

    Buffalo DriveStation Duo Offers A Lot Of Hard Drive To Love


    No one likes to come up short in the storage department and Buffalo Technology knows this. That’s why it’s launched the DriveStation Duo USB 2.0/FireWire external hard drives–WiFi connectivity would have been nice. These drives come in 500GB (HD-W500IU2/R1) and 800GB (HD-W800IU2/R1) capacities and are compatible with PC and Mac. And since each has two 7,200rpm SATA hard… Read More
