01/05/2014, [CES 2014] Seagate is introducing a new line of external backup hard drives with Seagate Backup Plus Slim, a new series that follows the previous “Backup Plus” drives launched in June 2012. As you have guessed, the new ones are smaller, thanks to the natural size reduction of drives but the more important update in 2014 is the capability to (partially) backup Android and iOS devices in addition to PC […]
09/09/2013, We know one of the main reasons why most people purchase an external hard drive is in order to keep those files that are most precious to them off of their computer. The last thing you want to happen is for your computer to completely shut down, leaving your memorable photos, music and any other important documents completely inaccessible. But sometimes, backup storage solutions could fail as well, which is […]
09/09/2013, If you’ve ever considered an Android tablet, we’re sure one of the major factors in making your upcoming purchase is whether or not to go for a tablet that has more internal storage. Even though a good majority of Android tablets support microSD cards, you’re only able to use up to 64GB cards, leaving those who need some serious storage space left with not much choice. Seagate is looking to […]
06/02/2013, Seagate has just announced the launch of a new 5mm HDD (hard disk drive) which represents an important height reduction (30%) from the previous 7mm and 9mm versions. Seagate built this to enable ultra-thin computers to reach a storage capacity of 500GB (today) to 650GB (by 2016) at a price point that SSDs (solid state drive) simply won’t allow in the same timeframe.
05/20/2013, Seagate is announcing a new hard drive specifically for storing video.
05/02/2013, Seagate is no stranger to the portable hard drive market, having come up with some hits of theirs in the past. Remember the Seagate GoFlex Slim Drive, which was touted to be the slimmest portable external hard drive in the world when it was revealed a couple of years back? Well, Seagate is still in the game of delivering quality storage on the go for the masses, and their latest […]
04/03/2013, In our culture and society these days, it seems that there is a growing obsession with being first. First in class, first on the grid, first in line to get the new iPhone…the list is practically endless when you think about it. Well, Seagate, a company that is well known in churning out storage solutions and manufactures hard drives as their bread and butter, has achieved another industry’s first with […]
03/05/2013, We did read about how Seagate has decided to cease manufacturing the 2.5” 7,200rpm hard drive for the notebook market yesterday, and whenever there is a “funeral” of sorts, here is an event which will celebrate the “birth”, so to speak, of the third generation hybrid drive from Seagate that is simply known as the SSHD. The SSHD was showcased at CES 2013 which happened a couple of months ago, […]
03/04/2013, Seagate, a name that is synonymous with hard drives is about to raise the white flag when it comes to manufacturing 7200rpm hard drives for notebooks. Yes sir, this is true, Seagate will no longer continue to produce 2.5-inch drives for notebooks, which means you will soon be unable to hear the sweet, sweet whirring and clicking of 7200 revolutions per minute within the belly of your notebook’s chassis. Surprising? […]
01/06/2013, Seagate is convinced of two things: 1/ that the future of computing is largely going to be mobile and led by tablets and smartphones 2/ that mobile device don’t have nearly enough storage to satisfy the enthusiast market. They are probably right on both counts, especially when it comes to folks who like to walk around with all their music, videos and other content. That’s exactly what the Seagate Wireless […]
01/06/2013, As we switch our lives to the digital world, more and more people would like to have a central repository for their content. Solutions have existed for some time, but for a while, getting a NAS and setting it up properly was out of the reach of the lay person who would rather spend time playing with the tech, than spend time setting it up. To be fair, nobody likes […]
10/17/2012, Seagate is an old hand when it comes to manufacturing hard drives, and today, we have a trio of new enterprise-class hard disk drives which were specially designed to cater to the varied needs of traditional data centers as well as emerging cloud infrastructures. Specially optimized for cloud bulk data storage, the Seagate Enterprise Value HDD delivers a maximum of 3TB of storage without consuming too much juice, making it […]
06/11/2012, Seagate has just launched a new line of backup products called Backup Plus. In addition to launching the hardware, this is the introduction of the Backup Plus brand, which will supersede, if not completely replace all the other Seagate product names that you may already know like GoFlex and UserAgent. The overall goal is to make things simpler and easily identifiable for end users.
05/23/2012, We have seen LaCie’s fair share of products and devices in the past, and the company does stock some pretty solid external data storage solutions, but today, word on the street has it that Seagate has decided to dip into their coffers to pick up a controlling interest in LaCie, which effectively places LaCie under Seagate’s corporate wings. Seagate has offered Philippe Spruch, LaCie’s chairman and CEO, as well as […]
