Halloween with Jack Skellington USB Drive
Saturday, January 30th, 2010 | Author: Grace

Subculture fans will line up for a new USB flash drive featuring Halloween Town’s fearless leader, Pumpkin King Jack Skellington. Famous from the movie The Nightmare before Christmas, this movie tie-in thumb drive is going straight to the top of our our favorites. The spooky effigy of Jack from the digital clay-mation cult favorite hides a USB connector and 4, 8 or 16GB flash drive. Made of impact resistant plastic, the Jack Skellington drive is effectively waterproof and shockproof. Reenact the movie and remove Jack’s head, and jack him into your USB port for quick access to flash storage.
A-Data has conveniently included a few trial pieces of software which are woefully unrelated to Jack’s dark image. A Marilyn Manson album or Rob Zombie MP3 would have been much more suitable for this fun flashback drive. These applications are free from A-Data’s web site as well. The USB drives are available at favorite gadget provider Brando’s online store for $30, $47 and $72 depending on the amount of storage you want.

Asus SBC-04D1S-U Blu-ray USB Drive
Monday, July 20th, 2009 | Author: Elaine Lee


Having a big screen laptop without Blu-ray is kinda like missing an opportunity to cruise down an empty highway. Granted, you can download HD content, but if you are geeks like us, there’s an urge to fully leverage the full potential of the notebook. For whatever reasons you are getting Blu-ray, the USB-powered Asus’ slim & sleek drive has you covered. It has upped the max. read speed to 4.8x for BD-ROM/RE which should relieve the agonizingly slow Blu-ray disc loading time. This however doesn’t help with writing Blu-ray as the Asus SBC-04D1S-U is only a BD reader, a tray-loading one.

What we also like about the BD reader is the big glowing ‘X’ on the side, making it far more aesthetically pleasing than the FastMac. A copy of CyberLink is bundled for movie playback. Keep in mind you can only output the HD content given both the laptop and the LCD screen have either HDMI or DVI (HDCP).

FreeAgent Go – USB Hard Drive
Tuesday, July 14th, 2009 | Author: Elaine Lee


The FreeAgent series (i.e. XTreme, Go, Desk, Theater) has long been Seagate’s cash cow. So when the manufacturer rolls out new, bigger drive, the FreeAgent will be the first to get it. Seagate’s own website provides a teaser on what appears to be the largest FreeAgent Go ever, equipping with a 640GB 2.5″ drive. Before this, 500GB is the max. capacity offered by anyone in the laptop-friendly HDD form factor. So, this product page sheds light on what is to come.

As a consumer storage line-up, the FreeAgent Go comes in 250GB, 320GB and 500GB as well as the unannounced 640GB. While all the other capacities are available in at least 5 colors, the 640GB will only get two (titanium silver and tuxedo black) for now. In-house developed backup software is for Windows only and oddly works with Seagate drives only. And a 5-year warranty is about as good as it gets for a portable USB drive.

128GB USB Flash Drive is coming
Tuesday, July 14th, 2009 | Author: Elaine Lee


Let’s face it – you can’t get enough of storage. When you think your brand new 32GB flash drive has you covered, you will soon find new ways to fill it up, such as backing up the whole system for data recovery on the go. Before you know it, you will be googling your next thumbdrive again. Kingston will be shipping a 128GB flash drive – the largest capacity yet as of this writing.

Designated DT200, the series also comprises of 32GB and 64GB, has a capless design, comes with five-year warranty, and includes data protection that is less likely going to rival that of Ironkey. It’s not going to matter anyway since most recovery software already incorporates some form of AES encryption. Keep in mind the 128GB is build-to-order only, and Kingston asks for a staggering $546, not to mention the drive is limited to USB 2.0. (Where is SuperSpeed USB when we need it?) As for the other two, the same company has been selling 32GB and 64GB that belong to the DT150 at a relatively attractive price.

Toaster-style USB Hard Drive Dock
Tuesday, July 14th, 2009 | Author: Elaine Lee


The guy who came up with the toaster-style USB hard drive dock should really deserve a medal. No longer do we need to figure out what to do with those old drives. We can easily jam in the spare 2.5″ and 3.5″ drives, and eject them like Nintendo cartridges.

Ever since the first dock shipped, we’ve seen no less than a dozen of ambitious, yet practical designs that expand on this cartridge system idea. However, those who are stuck for ideas simply copy the idea of a multi-slice toaster, and put as many as five slots like this extra-wide USB dock from Icy Dock. We couldn’t think of any viable way of putting this dock into good use besides creating a JBOD; perhaps this is just for show to spice up their Computex booth and won’t be in production.

Canon EOS 450D
Tuesday, June 30th, 2009 | Author: Elaine Lee


No need to call in the CSI guys, this isn’t the work of the Miniature Killer but it sure could qualify. What has to be one of the most detailed replica USB drives has arrived in the form (bidding has ended… sorry) of Canon EOS 450D. All the way down to the options on the LCD screen no detail is left out. The LCD is also back-lit when plugged in. Accurate down to every detail these are available on ebay now for between $90 to $150 depending on the competition for each one. Okay, they don’t really take pictures but it could make a great gift for the Canon fanboy on your list.

The only minor detail you’ll have to contend with is the odd shape of the drive. If it even fits directly into your USB ports it will likely block any nearby ports with its bulk. Worst case scenario it may not fit at all. Fortunately the seller includes a USB extension cord to help out. The model that’s currently for sale is only 2GB but previous versions were 4GB. Check them out for yourself. There may even be a few of the original 5D MarkII’s still available if that’s your favorite EOS.

Ennova OLED USB Drive
Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009 | Author: Elaine Lee

Oled USB Flash Drive news

Ennova Direct an IP company has been granted today a patent for an OLED lit fingerprint scanning thumbdrive. The flash Drive sports an OLED sensor screen capable of reading and storing fingerprints. Once the drive has been biometrically unlocked the OLED area can also be used as an interactive display. Consider it effectively an Optimus Micro if you will. The display will let you select which files you wish to unlock. The display to also be used to read out status information like remaining capacity or battery level. The clever flip cap hides and protects both the USB connector as well as the OLED screen.

Ennova Direct has been in business for five years now patenting device concepts. Their most recognizable patent is the retractable USB flash drive. Their concept picture looks strikingly similar to the Cruzer Contour flash drive. they also hold patents on Bluetooth audio devices, specifically for portable audio devices. Some other more pedestrian holdings aren’t as clever like their ‘flashlite’ flash drive plus rechargeable flash light, illuminated mouse pad and an illuminated mouse. I wonder how much money Brando has had to pay to these guys.
