ADATA will be expanding their solid state drive lines in 2014 and to kick things off they will be introducing the SX930 which will be available in capacities up to 2TB. That is one of the largest capacities that will be offered for a consumer solid state drive!
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.
Over the past year we have seen storage get smaller and smaller, but now ADATA is introducing their XU41 or Mini solid state drive. This is one of the smallest implementations of a full solid state drive that we have seen.
Last year we took a look at a very sexy external hard drive from ADATA. The DashDrive Elite HE720 was a great external hard drive, but it was limited by the mechanical hard drive that was inside of it. Well ADATA is back with the DashDrive Elite SE720, which looks almost identical to the HE720, but what’s under the hood is completely different. This time with the SE720 ADATA has packed it with a 128 GB solid state drive. That means you will not be limited by the hard drive that is inside and this will be one of the fastest external drives we have ever tested! How fast? Read on to find out!
