With the recent explosion in internet content, many people are considering hooking their computers to a television. But if your video card doesn't have an HDMI output, the options get tricky. Converters and adapters get involved, and there's generally a loss of quality or worse: some material won't output at all if the right safeguards and... Read more...
USB 3.0 thumb drives aren't anything revolutionary at this point, but they're still new enough to be novel. And Super Talent has been active in the industry from the very beginning. The company recently released a $15 Express DUO flash drive, which is probably the cheapest USB 3.0 USB key out there. But their newest... Read more...
USB 3.0 may not the total buzz of 2010 (that goes to tablets!), but it's definitely the peripheral highlight of the year. USB hasn't seen a major innovation in awhile prior to USB 3.0, and the speed increases are rather extreme, not to mention the backwards compatibility. Thus, it's not surprising to see major storage players like LaCie jump... Read more...
Is "fast" ever "fast enough?" No, probably not. Super Talent has been pushing speed boundaries for years now, offering up one of the first USB 3.0 thumb drives earlier in the year. Since then, a number of other rivals have come to market, but Super Talent is bringing the focus back on their USB 3.0 RAIDDrive with a... Read more...
And LaCie does it again. The company has been well known for producing the most stylish storage options the industry has to offer, and yet again LaCie has meshed style and speed together into one compact package. The new LaCie FastKey is a new breed of flash drive. Rather than using the traditional flash memory, LaCie has relied on internal... Read more...
When you think of NAS drives, you probably think of big, rectangular boxes that aren't much to look at. There's probably 2 or 4 bays in there for hard drives, a power port and an Ethernet jack. They're all pretty simple, and they're all pretty much the same. But this NAS drive is different. Majorly different... Read more...
If there's one thing we can't live without as gadget junkies, it's power. Regardless of whether it's solar or not, power is essential to keeping us connected, and these days, more and more devices are able to be charged via USB. We have seen lots of novel chargers come out in the past few years, but Innergie's latest... Read more...
Take a look at this USB dongle. Seen it before? You probably have, but from another company and for another purpose. Logitech's Unifying USB receiver looks a lot like this little guy, and it's possible that they actually use the same enclosure. But Logitech's unit is there to connect wireless peripherals to a PC. This one connects whatever... Read more...
Wireless charging still has some ways to go before it's truly useful across a broad spectrum of devices. Right now, wireless charging is usually limited to a small pad for charging up phones, and even then you need an accessory case to make the phone compatible. Until wireless charging modules are actually built into phones (the Palm Touchstone... Read more...
Verbatim introduced the new Store ‘n’ Go Clip-it USB drive. This ultra-lightweight flash drive features a clip-on design and a very small size. The drive offers 4GB of storage and can be snapped onto a document similarly to a paperclip. The Store ‘n’ Go Clip-it USB drive comes in pink, green, blue, orange and black.... Read more...
USB 3.0 has been out for awhile now. Loads of notebooks and desktops are shipping each day with USB 3.0 support, and while we still wish that each and every PC would make the jump to 3.0, at least progress is being made. But there's one qualifier there: the only USB 3.0 machines shipping are Windows-based PCs. In other words, no Mac is supporting... Read more...
Super Talent is no stranger to USB 3.0. The company has been producing USB 3.0 gear for some time now. But now they're breaking a price barrier. The company has just announced that their USB 3.0 Express Duo has broken the $15 price barrier. A USB 3.0 drive for under $20? That's a trend we can get behind. Super... Read more...

Zeal goes so far as to call them the world's first GPS-equipped goggles. The goggles... Read more...
Flash drives are a dime a dozen, and many of of them look exactly alike. But every so often, you'll find that a company goes out of their way to really differentiate their product. Super Talent is a known name in the USB / flash storage space, and they're the ones going out of their way this time. The new CKB flash drive not only fits on a... Read more...
USB drives have progressively become smaller and smaller over the years, and while that's good in one sense, it's bad in another. We're talking about how easy it has become to lose a USB thumb drive, and when those drives have highly important information on them, that's a potential deal-killer. Verbatim has an idea...

Just a few days ago, the USB-IF proclaimed that 100 devices had been certified for use with USB 3.0. Now it looks like they won't have long before reaching their next milestone. LaCie, a leader in the storage industry with a knack for designing stylish drives that look quite a bit better than anything else in the sector, has just introduced... Read more...
Recently, we have noticed more and more USB 3.0 products hitting the market, or at least hitting a product roadmap. It definitely took some time for the protocol to gain a lot of industry support, but a lot of that has to do with the fact that USB 2.0 is still largely "good enough" for many tasks. For example, mice and keyboards won't need... Read more...
Just recently the USB-IF made an announcement that over 100 USB 3.0 devices had become certified, and while we aren't certain if this Kingston drive made the cut, it's definitely on the list. Even if unofficially. Kingston, a major player in the memory and storage business, has just revealed their latest USB thumb drive, and it's a big one.... Read more...
This strange, strange looking device actually looks more sophisticated than it actually is. It's not a traditional media streamer; rather, it's a Wireless USB based product that simply creates a wireless link between your PC and your television. This obviously has pros and cons, but Veebeam is hoping you pay more attention to the former. Unlike... Read more...
DisplayLink will be showing off its new SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) chip platform for next generation displays, docking stations and other integrated devices at the Intel Developer Forum next week.

Lenovo is known for a few things. Namely, the ThinkPad, the IdeaPad and the ThinkCentre lines of computers. Lenovo notebooks in particular are used heavily in businesses, as their rugged frames and iconic tracking point. But here's something you probably don't think about: the power adapter that ships with Lenovo's ThinkPad line. It's just... Read more...
Small is good. Fast is good. Small and fast is better. That's what LaCie is offering with their newest hard drives, which are being listed as the world's smallest mobile (and desktop) USB 3.0 hard drives on the market. The new Minimus and LaCie Rikiki USB 3.0 both connect at far faster speeds than traditional USB 2.0... Read more...
