If you have a company you have some type of promotional materials whether it is stickers, t-shirts, mouse pads, etc. One promotional item that has become very popular over the past few years is the flash drive. Flash drives are very inexpensive and almost anyone has a use for one. We were contacted by PromoLocker and they asked us to review a few of their drives. Not only did they send us drives, they took our logo and put it on the drives as well. Let’s take a look at these drives and see if they are what you need for your company.
Today we have the chance to look at yet another Godfather flash drive. This time we are taking a look at the Rubber model, instead of the swivel version we took a look at a few days ago. The rubber model provides a more solid drive that also includes a storage place for that cap that always seems to run away from the flash drive. Enjoy the Godfather? Know someone that does? How about a cheap gift for them? Read on further to see what else this affordable drive can provide those Godfather fans out there.
The final decision is interface. There are eSATA, eSATA/USB, USB/Firewire, and Firewire only. Of course, the latter is more for Mac users, Firewire (IEEE 1394) has never really caught on with PC users, except those that happen to own camcorders or other devices that interface with Firewire. My desktop rigs all have eSATA, but this drive will most likely be shared with my laptop, which only has USB. Rather than use multiple cables, I prefer the simplicity of plugging one cable in the drive and leaving it. Today I will be looking at the Icy Dock MB664UEB-1S USB/Firewire 3.5″ External Enclosure. Though this enclosure is USB capable, the big deal is that it has Firewire 800 (IEEE 1394b), which is theoretically twice as fast as USB 2.0, and probably ends up being even faster than that. Read on to check out the MB664UEB-1S.
Today I will be looking at the In Win `Na, their new hard drive enclosure. In Win is well known for their cases and power supplies, and the `Na takes them into the world of storage enclosures. The `Na is definitely unique, I have never seen any hard drive enclosure.or any other PC peripheral for that matter, that looks like it. In Win calls it “An artistic storage device.” Read on to see the In Win `Na!
Windows 7, I’m sure you have heard of it by now. Already Microsoft has a new operating system, hopefully this one won’t be a disaster like Vista was. If you installed Vista or even later versions of XP from a DVD you know that it was very time consuming. Why not speed up the process by using a flash drive to install Windows 7. Windows 7 is currently in beta and Microsoft is offering it free to anyone to try out until August. In this article we will show you how to take the Windows 7 ISO and put it on a USB flash drive for fast and easy installation.
If there is one thing we have seen a lot of in the past few months it has been hard drive docks, external devices that allow you to plug in a SATA hard drive connect it to your computer via USB or eSATA. We have reviewed 3 of them already and they all are pretty much the same design. Today we will be looking at one from Icy Dock that is quite unique and is actually very portable as well. Let’s see if the MB881US-1S-1 is the best hard drive dock out of the mix.
Portable storage is always something that is always important to a lot of people. They need something that can be carried around with them and does not use an external power source. This only leaves them with 2 options, a flash drive or a portable hard drive. Currently flash drives only go up to 64GB so if you are looking for more storage than that you are going to have to go with a portable hard drive. Today we are taking a look at the 320GB Seagate FreeAgent Go Portable Hard Drive. We will see if it is the perfect companion for traveling.
