Sometimes, it’s the little things in life that make it better. For Sharkoon customers, that little thing is having USB 3.0 on the front panel of some of its desktop cases. The company announced that two of its cases, the Nightfall U3 and Rebel9 Alu U3, will both eschew front panel eSATA ports in favor of USB 3.0. The two cases are distinctly similar and feature a black brushed aluminum finish and detachable drive covers, but they have different facades and drive options. The Nightfall costs 44.90 euros (approximately $58.58 USD), and the Rebel9 chassis runs 54.90 euros (approximately $71.62... Read more...
Being able to easily swap drives in and out of a system without fiddling with cables is utterly convenient, especially if you swap out drives frequently, and Sharkoon has a new 2-in-1 SATA QuickPort product to make it even easier. The Sharkoon SATA QuickPort Intern Multi is a mouthful to say, but it appears laden with features. The device fits into a 5.25-inch drive bay (making it ideal for expansion) and can accommodate two drives at the same time. Each drive--a 2.5-inch SSD or HDD and a 3.5-inch HDD--has its own SATA connections, so both installed drives can work simultaneously. The SATA QuickPort... Read more...
A case without easily accessible hard drive bays or enough room to accommodate beefy components is one that is liable to get chucked out of a window in frustration at some point. Sharkoon’s T28 case is designed to alleviate those issues. The otherwise black case is available with red, green, or blue accents and features eight hard drive bays. It can also handle two 5.25-inch drives, and a pair of mounting frames for 2.5-inch drives is included. Part of the hard drive cage (containing three bays) can be removed to provide 40cm of space for a long graphics card. The T28 allows for a CPU cooler... Read more...

USB sticks have been around forever. No surprise there. But they've been improving in recent years, proving that there's still demand for these little guys so long as capacity increases along with transfer rates. The Sharkoon Flexi-Drive Ultimate is the company's latest, complete with an eight-channel MLC architecture and write speeds as high as 120MB/sec. Read rates are pegged at 200MB/sec, with capacity options of 64GB and 128GB. That's huge for a USB key, and could very well replace some of those old USB hard drives you have been lugging around. The Sharkoon Flexi-Drive Ultimate uses a powerful... Read more...
Believe it or not, we have actually heard of a quad-channel USB 3.0 stick before. They certainly aren't "everywhere" yet, but they're becoming increasingly popular as more and more notebooks start to ship with USB 3.0 ports. Sharkoon, an accessories and peripherals company, has just introduced their newest USB stick, a USB 3.0 device that has write rates of up to 70MB/sec, read rates of up to 110MB/sec and arrives in two sizes: 32GB and 64GB. These aren't giant drives that could be easily used as notebook backup drivers, but they're still sizable enough to carry around your essential documents... Read more...

We recently covered a waterproof keyboard, which is just fine by itself, but the real mess-maker needs a full complement of waterproof accessories. Wouldn't want that coffee spill to not injure your keyboard, but totally ruin your mousepad, right? Sharkoon, an off-the-wall accessory maker, has just introduced their newest mousing pad, and it's two things primarily: cheap, and waterproof.What's interesting is that you could argue that any hard-surfaced mousepad was "waterproof," as you can simply wipe away the beads of water and continue on. Well, as long as no liquid got up under your trackball... Read more...
Sharkoon doesn't carry the same weight as a name like Logitech or Belkin in the accessories market, but it's quickly making a name for itself with its recent rash of HDD docks and LAN-USB connectors. The company's latest device, the SATA QuickPort Pro LAN, enables SATA HDDs, storage cards, USB devices, etc. LAN compatible. Basically, it's a combination of the outfit's latest two products.

Basically, this allows users to connect pretty much any piece of storage media they have to their own local network,... Read more...
Sharkoon is best known for its HDD Docks, which enable internal 3.5" HDDs to be quickly accessed outside of a PC.

Basically, it's a USB network adapter that connects a USB port with a LAN. In short, it connects any USB flash drive or USB hard drive with the 'Net, making any USB storage... Read more...
