It is very evident that slowly and gradually 4.7GB DVDs are on verge of becoming outmoded. It’s not that the Blu-ray DVD comprising of a capacity of 128 GB has stolen the show; it’s just that there is a much bigger giant in the line now. You will be highly surprised to know that a team of scientists at the Swinburne University claim to have discovered a break-through method that can actually mount 1000TB of storage space onto a single DVD.
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.
Samsung has just announced today that it has begun the mass production of its first PCI Express SSD build specifically for next generation Ultra Slim notebook PCs. Courtesy of Samsung XP941, which has provided the highest performance PCI SSD to global PC makers and to the Ultra Slim Notebook PCs this year. Samsung wants to play a vital role in delivering the most advanced PCI SSD with high density and performance to directly become a helping hand to provide an extremely healthy computing environment to consumers.
Once again, the ASMedia is all geared up to rock the market with its latest USB 3.5 offering a bandwidth of 10GBps level and is scheduled to be available in 2014 as mentioned by the company’s president. It has transmission speed comparable to that of thunderbolt but will be available at much affordable prices. USB 3.5 will certainly have more opportunity in the market for SSD applications.
You might me wondering if it’s really true that a Blu-ray disk can actually last for a 1000 years! Well yes you read that just right. The “M-DISC” created by Utah-based Millenniata will be available later this year with a capacity of 25 GB. Well if you put your data on a disk, flash drive or any storage device and check it after 5 years, there will be a lot of uncertainty whether it will be intact or not but this Blue-ray disk guarantees its 1000 years of life.
At Computex Intel is showing off a Prototype flash drive, which they are calling the “world’s fastest thumb drive” which uses Thunderbolt technology rather than USB. The key-shaped drive carried with it a capacity of 128 GB and plugs directly into a Thunderbolt port. The drive itself is about the same size as normal USB flash drives.
Don’t we need something more than 16GB of on-flash storage in our tablets? Well then you guys are not thinking ahead. Seagate is entering the market with its latest 5mm laptop ultrathin hard drive. It has a storage capacity of 500 GB which looks ideal for ultrabooks and tablets. Its available in both 320GB and 500GB. As the name indicates it’s the conventional hard drive and not the solid state drive. Traditional HDD offers a lot more storage capacity for price value than the SSDs which not only have little capacity but are also higher in price.
In 1953, engineers in IBM’s California-based laboratory invented the very first hard drive. Since that first disk drive, technological advances have been made at an astonishing rate, with data capacity increasing and size and price decreasing exponentially, year on year. 60 years on, the hard drives of today are unrecognizable from the first models, which took up an entire room. Hard drives today are measured in terms of gigabytes and terabytes, rather than megabytes-an amount of data that would have been almost unimaginable in the early history of computers. Here we take a look back at the evolution of the hard drive as it grew from 5MB to 4TB.
Silicon Power SP which is world’s renowned company when it has to come to memory storage solutions has surfaced up with a newly designed flash drive called JEWEL 10.

Its not only an ordinary storage device but also a status symbol allowing you to express yourself.
Seagate technology has unveiled the world’s first purpose built 4TB hard drive for video storage applications put up to deliver high quality performance and operation.
