Verbatim USB3.0 SuperSpeed 
Verbatim sent us their new external USB3 hard drive. The good thing about this particular drive is that it comes with an USB3 Controller Card. Great if you have a setup without a native USB3-support.

Verbatim 2.5" SSD 
SSDs are hard at work, trying to replace the old and slow hard drives. Now that the price of these spinning ones is high, perhaps it is time to upgrade? Would the Verbatim SSD offer what we need?

My Book Essential 3 TB 
USB 2.0 has never been the connection for people in a hurry, as it's only been capable of transfer speeds up to about 30 MB/s. Now, however, with the introduction of USB 3.0, the USB is also a choice for the people looking for performance. Western Digital was kind enough to send us their new My Book Essential 3 TB USB3.0 drive, so let's see just how fast these things can be!

My Book - World Edition II - 2 TB 
For smaller amount of files one can use very cheap thumb drives or DVDs, but for most an external hard drive is a good choice. For added security and also extra functionality it's often nice for the drive to be connected to the home network. This is where the Western Digital My Book World Edition II comes into picture.

32 GB Patriot Warp v2 Solid State Drive 
SSDs are trying to enter market and replace platter based hard drives. Technologywise they surpass the old way of storaging data magnetically so why the SSD market is still so slow eventhough the drives have been around for couple of years now?

Silverstonetek TS01B 
As 2,5" laptop drives already range up to 320 GB in storage space, in worst case scenario they can contain virtually endless amounts of classified material that in wrong hands can lead to huge problems. Silverstonetek has come up with a nice product aimed at the markets of secure external hard disks - RFID protected TS01B 2,5" hard disk enclosure.

Super Talent Pico A 8 GB 
Don't panic even if the topic triggers a strong dj vu feeling in you, because indeed we have already reviewed one Super Talent Pico A USB flash drive. The difference this time around is that now Super Talent has come up with a new model in the same product family and now the Pico series ranges from 1 GB up to 8 GB in capacity.

Plextor PX-PH160US Mobile HDD 
Most external hard drives use 3,5" disks, and the reason is easy to see: they offer the largest capacity for the lowest price. However there are also models with 2,5" disks on the market and these have known pros compared to their larger brothers. First of all, they obviously are smaller, making it easier to keep the disk with you, especially when using a laptop. Secondly, the 2,5" disks require less power, so they produce less heat and don't need an external power supply.

Super Talent Pico A 2 GB 
Almost everyone already owns one or has at least used one. They are everywhere, come in all shapes and sizes and can be preloaded right from the store with goodies like music. The prices have come down at tremendous speed for the last couple of years, which has caused the manufacturers to think of new ways to differe from the masses and come up with something new to make their product stand out more.

Corsair PadLock 
USB Flash Memory storage devices are very common these days. They are easy to carry around and they offer relatively large storage capacity for their physical size. While it is great to carry around gigabytes worth of data; being those mp3 files, movies, games or documents from work, you would not want to lose the drive. May you loose the unit by forgetting it or via robbery, the lost data usually weighs a lot more than the raw price of the unit.

Corsair Survivor 
Now that LCD screens have found their way even to mass storage devices - Corsair ReadOut we reviewed earlier, it's hard to think of anything new to add to a USB Flash device. Corsair keeps surprising, now with Survivor concept of tough USB memory with nice 8 GB capacity.

Thecus YES Box N2100 
Now that people are enjoying most of their videos, music and photos stored in digital formats, it is getting very important to keep the data safe but also easily accessible. Tapes are safe but are slow to access, CDs and DVDs have capacity limits so hard drives seem to be optimal in many ways. Now that you can get gigabytes worth of storage space for pennies, you need a device to hook the drives up to that makes all the data accessible fast and easy. That's where N2100 from Thecus comes in.

sub is finishedMy robot project. So far it only has two separate collision detectors but I'm working on IR proximity sensors to avoid collisions. That unconnected 6-wire cord in the ATmega board is the programming cable that I forgot to take away. :)
* Body: plywood (I'll make a new body as soon as I find a better material, but for now the plywood is good enough for this kind of prototyping), diameter of the plywood disc is 12cm and the overall height of the robot is about 10cm
* Brain: Atmel ATmega8 AVR microcontroller (32 pin TQFP one with a self made pcb) with a 4MHz crystal
* Programming language: C
* Motor controller: SN754410 (1 Amp Quadruple H-Bridge), you can see the corner of the control board on the front, below the top part
* Motors: two small (2cm long, 2cm diameter) gear motors I got from a friend, no idea where they have been used before but the robot runs nicely with the Lego wheels attached straight to the motors (about 12cm per second so no new land speed records yet)
* Power: 4xAA cells for the motors and 9V battery for other electronics
