Imation Apollo Expert D300 external hard drive looks so last century
The Imation Apollo Expert D300 external hard drive might pack in some modern tech, but the design? Not exactly ground-breaking in any way. After all, you get a plain dull color on the outside as well as a pseudo-rectangular form factor that won’t turn heads at all. Still, $220 will net you USB 3.0 connectivity that is set to be all the rage in the future, coming in 500GB, 1TB […]

LaCie Rikki Go external drives announced
LaCie has just announced its latest Rikki Go external drives, and for those who are not in the know, a Rikiki is actually a small monkey with a mohawk as depicted in the product documentation which was spotted on the LaCie website. Seems more like the offshoot of a renegade Gremlin to us. Still, this rather unorthodox marketing tactic will see the drive come in a brushed aluminium enclosure complete […]


I-O Data rolls out HDPN-U500/V external hard drive for memory hungry users
I-O Data is a name that most people know when it comes to external storage devices, and among their more recent releases would be the HDPN-U500/V external hard drive.

Transcend StoreJet 25D2 portable hard drive

Its exterior comes with a […]
