OCZ Trifecta SD Memory 1GB

Whether you're a professional photographer or just a digital camera enthusiast, the last thing you want to run into when traveling or just away from home is forgetting or losing your memory card reader, but with OCZ's latest product you no longer need to worry. The OCZ Trifecta is a memory card that complies with Secure Digital specifications but can be inserted into any USB 2.0 port. If a Secure Digital memory card that can be inserted into a normal USB port is not enough, the OCZ Trifecta is also a microSD card! In this review we will explore the OCZ Trifecta Secure Digital 1GB as we look at how it works and seeing how it can function as a normal memory card.

Corsair 1GB SD 133x & 2GB SD 60x

Last January we had reviewed the Corsair Secure Digital 133x 512MB card, which was great for its time but with more and more people now using SD cards in a variety of gadgets and needing greater storage capabilities, we couldn't help but to try out some of Corsair's larger offerings. At hand today we will be looking at the Corsair 133x 1GB SD card as well as the Corsair 60x 2GB SD card. Do Corsair's flash offerings still reign supreme?

Vantec NexStar 3

To this point many external SATA enclosures haven't catch our attention; there have been quite a few mediocre enclosures we have laid our eyes on, but nothing that we felt was a godsend. However, recently the Vantec NexStar 3 managed to peak our interest so we decided to look at this enclosure, which supports 3.5" SATA 2.0 hard drives and an external interface of either eSATA or USB 2.0. Will the Vantec NexStar 3 be the drive enclosure we have been looking for?

SilverStone NAS NS311

While SilverStone Technology is primarily known for their high-end selection of PC chassis enclosures and power supplies, last year SilverStone had introduced the Mobile Storage series. At that time we had reviewed the SilverStone Mobile MS02, which was a 2.5" mobile hard drive enclosure with a USB 2.0 interface. We had found this external 2.5" HDD enclosure to offer a great deal of features, while being encased inside a stylish aluminum housing. The latest series among SilverStone's storage products is the NAS series. SilverStone has introduced its first Network Attached Storage (NAS) device! The SilverStone NS311 supports both LAN and USB 2.0 connections and supports a single 3.5" IDE hard drive.

Corsair Flash Voyager 8GB

Last week we had examined the OCZ Mega-Kart 8GB flash drive, and now this week we have the privilege of covering Corsair's new CMFUSB2.0-8GB Flash Voyager. This USB flash drive offers a storage capacity of 8GB while promising 33MB/sec reads and 16MB/sec writes. Nevertheless, will this 8GB flash drive be able to continue in the legendary success we had previously seen by the Corsair Flash Voyager series?

OCZ Mega-Kart 8GB Flash Drive

OCZ Technology is at it again attempting to push the envelope for flash media. When they had introduced the Rally it was a smoking fast flash drive that had finally stolen the performance crown from Corsair's Flash Voyager. After that OCZ pushed the physical envelope for flash drives with the incredibly small Mini-Kart. Now OCZ Technology is at it again, but this time around they are attempting to push the storage capacity for computer users. The OCZ Mega-Kart offers an 8GB storage capacity while retaining a small footprint, and best of all an economically-minded price.

Icy Dock MB122 & MB452

The Icy Dock MB122 and MB452 are quite interesting products. They are sold separately, but the MB122 and MB452 can function together to make it a truly unique and excellent combination. These drive enclosures are unlike anything we have seen in the past.

OCZ Ultra-Slim Mini-Kart 1GB

Last year we had presented our findings from the OCZ Technology Rally drives, which was the company's first stab at creating a competitive USB flash device, and the drive has been the fastest competitor we have seen to this point and took its reign from the Corsair Flash Voyager. Today we have our hands on the recently announced OCZ Mini-Kart. What new items does the OCZ Mini-Kart Flash Drive bring to the table? Well, for one its size is a competitive factor.

Seagate 5.0GB Pocket Hard Drive

Seagate Technology has been in the business of manufacturing disc drives since 1979 and their nearly 30 years of experience has certainly showed with their vast lineup of storage products. In fact, in 2004 Seagate had shipped over 6.6 petabytes of total storage in the form of 82.5 million drives! The Seagate product we are testing today is their 5GB Pocket Hard Drive. Will this palm-sized drive be the future replacement to flash drives and other portable forms of media?
