When it comes to adding a performance-enhancing upgrade to your system, a good SSD can’t be beat, but storage capacity is an ever-growing need as well. There was a time when a 1TB drive seemed grossly (deliciously?) excessive for the average user, but these days anything less than 500GB seems woefully undersized. Even casual users who play a few games, shoot a little video here and there, and maintain a modest music library need lots of storage. HDDs continue to increase in capacity yet remain reasonably priced in light of solid state offerings, to the point that you can have yourself a multiple-terabyte... Read more...

It seems as if you have to come up with a new password with upper and lower case, symbols and numbers every five seconds. So the idea of having a secure external hard drive that needs no password seems rather intriguing.Freecom came out with a relatively small external drive that uses a keycard instead of a password to keep your data secure. Sure, you have to make sure you don't lose the card, but at least you can't get locked out if you keep typing in your Gmail password by accident.Said Axel Lucassen, Freecom's co-founder and executive senior VP of product line management and marketing: You hear...

New ground has been broken in the hard drive industry with the release of Hitachi's 1 terabyte hard drive featuring perpendicular recording. The hard drive company has also discussed the idea of a new kind of HD/flash memory hybrid. Hard drives in the future would have flash memory built in that would protect the device from data loss by housing all the information the system calls on the most. This will reduce disk use, increase longevity, and may perhaps even increase performance in the future. Hitachi has unveiled a drive which has reached the new heights of one terabyte.... Read more...
Technology shows great promise but still under long term research DailyTech reports -- "Researchers at the University of Central Florida announced this week that they have developed a way to store massive amounts of data onto a disc roughly the size of a typical DVD. This sounds like another competitive format to Blu-ray or HD-DVD, but in fact, the new technology can store thousands of times that of a DVD." I remember seeing my first terabyte storage device -- massive thing about the size of a small apartment at the Los Alamos Research Labs, and that was less than ten years ago, and only had a...

50 years after the release of IBM's RAMAC(Random Access Method of Accounting and Control) drive, Hitachi is announcing their plans to release a Terabyte drive later this year. Some can argue that it's not a full Terabyte as in 1,024GB, but with 1,000GB it's closer than anything we have out now. If Seagate's 750GB drive just wasn't big enough for you, than it's time to step up to Hitachi. "It's not that big of a stretch for some hard drive makers. Hitachi already sells a 500GB drive, while rival Seagate Technology started... Read more...
