Today we're looking at the Samsung microSD PRO 32GB and EVO 16GB cards. They promise very different speeds for consumers and professionals alike, and we'll discuss those differences as we take a closer look at what Samsung has to offer with their big splash back into the retail market.
Mobile computing is very much a part of everyone's day-to-day life, whether or not we choose to admit it or even realize it. From your cell phone to your tablets and notebooks, everything we use is becoming increasingly travel-friendly. Even our gaming desktop computers are becoming extremely small, as is evidenced by systems built in cases like the Bitfenix Colossus Mini ITX. It should only follow that mobile storage solutions should follow this trend. For those of you who are on-the-go and want a bit more insurance for your mobile storage devices, Adata has a rage of external hard drives that should suit your needs nicely. The DashDrive Durable HD650 comes in storage densities of 500 GB and 1 TB, and comes with an impact resistant shell. Let's take a closer look to see just how solid these drives are.
Introduction Most home based networks normally end up sharing files stored on computer systems, whether it’s a dedicated file storage system or a number of different systems sharing files. It takes a lot to maintain these systems, not to mention the power they use to just share movies, music, etc. While this may have been the most efficient way of consistently sharing files between each other in the past, Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices were extremely expensive when they first came out, and mainly advertised towards businesses for data storage. But what if you could have your own NAS device sharing all your memorable pictures, movies or even music? And, not only to your own local network but also accessible to authorized users across the globe? Introducing the Thecus N2310 NAS. Though not as powerful as the N2560 and N4560 released earlier this quarter, the N2310 still packs in a lot of the features of its pricier siblings. It’s also a more affordable way to utilize these features with safety in mind, knowing that your files will be safe and available where-ever you may be. Before we get started, let’s read more about Thecus. In today’s networked world, digital content is truly the most precious asset. At Thecus, we take pride in developing innovative storage solutions that keep data safe and secure. Founded in 2004, the Thecus team brings decades of R&D expertise, Thecus brand marketing channel development, and a strong customer fo...
Portable storage devices like USB thumb drives have been around over the last decade or so. Despite this, we are starting to see a much higher use from such drives in the last few years, especially with capacity on them being larger and faster. However, sometimes storing data on such drives can increase the risk of having your data easily lost or stolen. Well, today we are going to be looking at a new Kingston 64GB DataTraveler Locker+ G3 USB 3.0 thumb drive that aims to help with that. What's so different about this drive? It includes some extra security which requires a password to access the drive! Kingston released a software based USB drive that will only give you access to the drive once the password you set up is input. The password encoded drive will help secure all the files stored, which will give you piece of mind that your data is safe for traveling or normal every day use. Today as we continue forward, we are going to test the Kingston 64GB DataTraveler Locker + G3 in multiple scenarios to evaluate the performance, security and reliability of the drive.
During our visit with Kingston at CES 2014 this year, we had a chance to sit down with them to talk about the new and up-coming flash memory cards that are designed for HD Media use. With the advancing and growing media recording industry, faster and more reliable flash memory cards are on high demand, especially those looking for high capacity to store everything on one card. With the standards of 1080p recording, Ultra HD 2160p and 3D/2K&4K resolutions on the horizon, the number of pixels on recording devices can no longer suffice with the slower and lower capacity memory cards. It has been a couple of months since the initial talk and today we finally got our hands on the Kingston 64GB SDXC Class 3 UHS-I U3 flash memory card. Kingston developed this particular card in three available sizes, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The last one will be the memory card we take a look at today. Kingston was also nice enough to send us the Kingston Mobile Lite G3 SD and Micro-SD card USB 3.0 reader as an extra bonus to be able to test the memory card today. With the speed advancements in the SDXC memory card, we wanted to make sure there are no bottlenecks.
With technology growing, the size of storage has grown too. We constantly need more space for moving larger files from one system to another, but we don’t always have network accessibility. Whether it is movies, music or a system backup, we don't always have cables on hand when it comes to transferring files between computer and your mobile device. Transcend realized not everybody carries cables around, and introduced the Jetflash 380. The Jetflash 380 is available in 16 or 32GB sizes in either silver or gold. We have the opportunity to test the 380G 16GB version. Continue reading to find out how well these drives do in our testing.
