    Hitachi raises CinemaStar HDDs to 500GB

    There isn’t enough room on my DVR, not remotely. I don’t even watch that much TV, but my hard drive is small. Sure, there are ways to hack them to make them bigger but I like to do right by my TOS agreements, so I don’t. But now that Hitachi has released the 500GB CinemaStar 3.5-inch HDDs, I’m considering it. They’re made to run quiet, specifically for devices like… Read More

  • Digital Cowboy's HDD video dock is simple yet rad, like me

    Digital Cowboy's HDD video dock is simple yet rad, like me

    While I remain an Apple TV fan, this set-top dock is pretty neat. It’s a dock that basically acts as a video out for the included 2.5-inch portable hard drive that’s full of all of your porn. Neat! It works with all the most popular video formats, including DivX, so you can download from BitTorrent right to the device and plug it right into your HDTV. We like it. Read More

  • External HDD coming for PS3 from Sony?

    External HDD coming for PS3 from Sony?

    Sony seems to be uncomfortable with the current HDD configuration of the PS3 or so it seems according to David Reeves, the SCEE head honcho. They did reduce the price of the PS3 by switching to a smaller capacity hard drive, but I don’t see anyone wanting to buy varying options from Sony if it were an option. I’ll gladly use one of my existing portables or buy a cheap 2.5-inch SATA to… Read More

  • Why are Xbox 360 HDDs so damn expensive?

    Why are Xbox 360 HDDs so damn expensive?

    I’ve always wondered why the HDD for the Xbox 360 was so expensive and just assumed it was a proprietary matter because Microsoft likes to do that sort of thing, but I never bothered to look into it. My Elite has 120GB so I don’t ever need a new one. Anyway, MTV’s Patrick Klepek really wanted to know why a 120GB drive is $180, so he called up iSuppli and this is what he found. Read More
