The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, is one of the biggest events in the Tech space each year. We typically see a dizzying array of new products launch during the week of CES; more than we are likely to see in the following few months. Not all products are block-buster standouts though, and some of these technological spectacles inevitably shine brighter than others. After sifting though all the products we saw last week, we've compiled a list of the best products that we got time with at CES 2019. And with that, we'll just dive right in...

Toshiba today rolled out its latest family of NVMe SSDs that will be used by OEMs later this year. The new BG4, as its name implies, is a 4th generation, single-chip ball grid array (BGA) SSD that brings some pretty impressive performance gains over its BG3 predecessor. For starters, the BG4 uses 96-layer 3D BiCS TLC NAND instead of 64-layers, which not only bolsters overall capacities, but also keeps power consumption in check (Toshiba says that overall power consumption has been reduced by 20 percent). And whereas the BG3 uses an NVMe PCIe 3.0 x2 interface, the BG4 instead uses an NVMe... Read more...
Here's my bold, and maybe biased prediction: Red Sox are going to the World Series, Patriots are headed to the Super Bowl, Celtics are a lock for the NBA Finals, and the Bruins will compete for the Stanley Cup. If you're a diehard Boston sports fan like myself and want to catch all the glory on something bigger and better than 32-inch TV, you can upsize your viewing experience at Amazon today with a snazzy deal on a Toshiba 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for $349.99. That's a good deal even if you hate Boston sports (unthinkable!). This is one of Amazon's Fire TV Edition models too, which means the... Read more...

Toshiba has released a string of top-notch, affordable NVMe solid state drives over the last couple of years featuring its BiCS flash memory technology, which target a wide array of market segments. We’ve shown you a few recently, like the diminutive, affordable OCZ RC100 and the mainstream OEM targeted, XG5. Today, Toshiba is redoubling its efforts in the OEM segment with yet another new client NVMe drive, the XG6. We first posted news of the XG6 a few weeks back – if you’d like to check out the initial announcement, it is available right here. Like the XG5, this new drive... Read more...
Toshiba has uncloaked its new XG6 Client NVMe SSDs that are targeted at OEM customers and will be installed in PCs that you’ll be able to purchase from a variety of manufacturers.  The XG6 serves a successor to the existing XG5 family, but will sit alongside the XG5-P, which is offered in higher capacities. What makes the XG6 so interesting is that it is the world’s first SSD to use 96-layer BiCS 3D NAND flash memory. Compared to its 64-layer predecessors, the new 96-layer tech allows Toshiba to increase capacity per unit chip size by 40 percent. In addition, power consumption... Read more...
Although we first caught a glimpse of the SSD that would become the Toshiba OCZ RC100 back at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, they are now ready for public consumption and Toshiba has just begun shipping the drives. If you’re not hip to the OCZ RC100, it’s a new family of solid state drives that’s specifically designed to push the NVMe interface and smaller M.2 form factor further down into mainstream price points. Toshiba accomplishes this feat by using a single-package design that packs the NAND flash memory and controller into a single chip. The drive’s design... Read more...
Over the past two weeks, we have detailed an ongoing issue that has prevented PCs with certain Intel SSDs from upgrading to the new Windows 10 April 2018 Update. Microsoft was vague about what SSDs were affected at first, but then later confirmed that the bug crippled the Intel SSD 600p and Intel SSD Pro 6000 series. "When attempting to upgrade to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, select devices with Intel SSD 600p series or Intel SSD Pro 6000p series may crash and enter a UEFI screen after reboot," said Microsoft earlier this month. "Microsoft is working with OEM... Read more...
Back in September we heard rumors floating around that "very soon" Toshiba would be launching a massive 14TB storage solution for desktop computers. Fast-forward three months and the new Toshiba MG07ACA series HDD has landed and is heralded as the world's first 9-disk helium-sealed design. The drive brings 14TB of conventional magnetic recording (CMR) storage capacity and spins at 7,200 rpm. Since the drive uses an industry standard 3.5-inch form factor, it will easily integrate into existing cloud-scale storage infrastructures, servers, and storage arrays. This might be the ideal HDD for computer... Read more...
Toshiba has announced the new XG5-P NVMe SSD that promises fast speeds in capacities up to 2TB. The M.2 gumstick style NVMe SSD is based on 64-layer 3D BiCS NAND memory and Toshiba says that it's tuned for an improved full access range of random read/write performance with gains of up to 55% compared to standard Toshiba XG5 SSDs. This flavor of Toshiba NVMe SSD is built to provide the sort of performance required by gamers and workstation professional content delivery workloads. Sequential read and write speeds are listed at 3,000 MB/sec and 2,200 MB/sec respectively, while random read and write... Read more...
Toshiba has announced an array of products featuring various flavors of its 64-layer BiCS 3D Flash memory. We previously took a look at the speedy Toshiba XG5 NVMe M.2 SSD, and found it to be a capable performer. Today, however, Toshiba takes its 64-layer BiCS 3D Flash technology in another direction with the brand-new TR200 series SATA solid state drives we’ll be showing you here. The Toshiba TR200 series SSDs are built around 64-Layer 3-bit-per-cell TLC (triple-level cell) BiCS Flash, but use the legacy SATA interface and target budget-conscious do-it-yourselfers. Toshiba’s BiCS Flash memory... Read more...
After spending many months battling roadblock after roadblock in its fight to continue to be listed on the Toyko Stock Exchange, Toshiba has unveiled a definitive plan to offload its microchip business. Investors have come to the company's rescue, offering up $18 billion USD to acquire its lucrative NAND capacities. Investors include American investment firm Bain Capital, and two organizations controlled by the Japanese government: Innovation Network Corporation, and Development Bank of Japan. With its $2 trillion yen sale, Toshiba would be $740 billion yen for the better, allowing it to remain... Read more...
Toshiba is apparently getting ready to release a 14-terabyte capacity hard drive model. So say company representatives at the Huawei Connect conference in Shanghai, China, who indicated that 14TB helium-filled HDDs would hit the marketplace "very soon." When pressed for clarification on how soon they were talking about, the representatives said the large capacity HDDs would arrive by the end of 2017.The largest capacity HDD currently available is 12TB—both Seagate and Western Digital's HGST division offer 12TB models aimed at the enterprise market. These are single drive solutions and they are... Read more...
Toshiba has been busy updating its solid state drive portfolio this summer, and it is leaving no market untouched. The company's latest product announcement is a pair of speedy enterprise SSDs. They are the first enterprise-class SSDs to be built around the company's latest 64 layer, 3-bit-per-cell TLC (triple-level cell) NAND BiCS flash memory, making it possible for customers to expand the use of flash with cost-optimized solutions.The first of the new drives is the TMC PM5 series. It offers up to a whopping 30.72 terabytes of capacity in a 2.5-inch form factor, with transfer speeds rated to... Read more...
