    Review: WD My Passport Edge (500GB)

    Posted November 3, 2012 - 7:35 am

    The $100, 500GB Western Digital My Passport Edge is thinner and more attractive than the standard WD My Passport, but it can't compete with Seagate's Slim in either regard. It's an excellent performer and sports a nice software utility bundle, but isn't available in larger capacities.

    Review: Seagate Satellite Mobile Wireless storage (500GB)

    Posted November 3, 2012 - 7:35 am

    While it's a good all-around portable drive, the 500GB Seagate GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless's raison d'être is serving up files and multimedia via Wi-Fi. The drive creates its own local hotspot that you can log onto with just about any device sporting a Web browser to view the documents, video, music and photos stored on the drive. Seagate also provides dedicated GoFlex Media clients for Android and iOS devices.

    Review: Seagate Slim Portable Drive (500GB)

    Posted November 3, 2012 - 7:35 am

    Seagate's $120, 500GB Slim is easily the sexiest, thinnest portable drive in the roundup and as far as we know, in existence. Indeed, at first sight, several PCWorlders mistook it for a phone. What that says about phones is another matter. The downside to the super-svelte, 9mm thick Slim is limited capacity: it's available only with 500GB.

  • How to master Storage Spaces in Windows 8

Meet Storage Spaces, a new Windows utility that allows you to connect multiple data storage devices (internal and external) that rely on different interfaces (SATA hard drives, USB flash drives, and Serial Attached SCSI drives, for example) to your PC and treat them as a single giant storehouse dubbed your “storage pool.”

    Review: Intel's Series 335 delivers more SSD for less money

    Posted October 31, 2012 - 3:19 pm

    Intel has revved up its mainstream SSD line from the Series 330 to the Series 335, and the company sent over a 240GB model for evaluation (and 240GB is apparently the only capacity it is launching this series with). The new drives feature 20nm NAND flash memory, compared with the 25nm chips in the older series, but Intel continues to use an LSI/SandForce SF-2281 controller with custom Intel firmware. The company uses the same controller in its Series 330 and Series 520 drives.
