As many of you known OCZ’s assets were acquired by Toshiba. With that we were unsure if the OCZ name would stay around, but Toshiba is keeping OCZ around. To start off 2014 OCZ will be launching the Vertex 460 2.5-inch solid state drive very soon.
OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance solid state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that the Company has signed an asset purchase agreement with Toshiba Corporation, a global technology leader and manufacturer of NAND flash memory, to acquire substantially all of OCZ’s assets in a chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding for $35M.
Toshiba Corp. on Monday lifted the curtains off the industry’s highest-performing hard disk drive in 2.5”/7mm form-factor. The new series from Toshiba i.e. MQ01ACF drives, offer up to 500GB capacity and boast with 7200 RPM spindle speed.
We have seen slim external drives, and now Toshiba is giving us an opportunity to view Toshiba’s Canvio Slim II. The first generation hard drive by Toshiba was launched last year followed by the launch of Canvio Slim offering as much as 1TB on internal storage space and only measures up to 12.5mm in thickness. It’s definitely the smallest and thinnest external hard drive available currently in the market supporting both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.
It seems like Toshiba has its own charm by doing it three times. Earlier it was the “thrive” series and then coming up a bit short with it’s the “Excite” line. The company has completely replaced it with three new models which include Excite pure, Excite pro and Excite Write sharing almost the same body and dimensions.
Toshiba has announced today a new portable hard drive in the Canvio Connect. The drive will be available in capacities up to 2TB and comes in black, silver, blue, red and white colors. Toshiba says you can share files directly from the device at anytime, although that does require the drive do be connected to an internet-enabled PC that is powered on. So for those thinking this is an standalone WiFi hard drive it is not.
Toshiba Corporation will showcase a reference display of an SDHC memory card with TransferJet close proximity wireless transfer technology at the 2013 International CES, to be held from January 8 to 11, 2013, in Las Vegas, U.S.A. The SDHC memory card on reference display will be a product under development, integrating a TransferJet transceiver IC, a coupler, an RF filter, peripheral passive parts, an SD bridge connection circuit, and Toshiba’s NAND flash memory.
Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the Canvio Slim Portable Hard Drive. With a capacity of 500 GB and measuring only nine millimeters thick, the Canvio Slim is the smallest portable hard drive available on the market.
The night before CES actually starts, media company Pepcom holds an annual event called “Digital Experience.” This event showcases some of the newest technology coming to market, some of it announced at the event or shortly before it. I toured Digital Experience — this year with an Area 51 alien invasion theme — and present herein some of the great finds.
