Review: Patriot Supersonic Phoenix USB 3.0 drive

10/08, 1:20am

Pocket-sized solid state drive offers quick reads, falls just short of stated writes

USB thumb drives aren't the end all solutions for data transfer and traveling needs.

One example of a bigger, faster drive is the Patriot Supersonic Phoenix. The drive is offered in a pocket-sized format that is more like a portable hard drive than a USB flash drive. But would the Supersonic Phoenix be something that consumers flock to with its SSD-like features, or should they opt for the smaller thumb drive? Find out in our review.

Review: HighPoint RocketStor 6324L Thunderbolt 2 to eSATA bridge

09/27, 3:25pm

How fast can a quartet of hard drives push data across Thunderbolt 2?

Like it or not, the shift to Thunderbolt is underway. The connection is extremely flexible, allowing for video and data to co-habitate on the fast-speed bus. The problem is that the introduction of new ports doesn't preclude the need to use old ports. Highpoint has a solution for those eSATA drive cases in the Thunderbolt 2 RocketStor 6324L host adapter for eSATA devices. Bridging devices for older connectors can be expensive, and sometimes its worth it to replace the enclosure instead -- does the value equation hold up for this speed-oriented adapter?

USB thumb drives are getting larger by the day, their growth speeding along with the availability and expansion of memory chips.

Review: Kanex KTU10 Thunderbolt to eSATA and USB 3.0 adapter

08/30, 12:36pm

Does the KTU10 give USB 3.0 to 2011 Macs as well as Kanex claims?

Apple has never been shy about funky ports -- first it was Apple Desktop Bus, and its own DIN-8 serial port. Following that came FireWire and the first widespread implementation of USB. USB and FireWire still exist in faster versions that the original incarnations, but now Apple's got Thunderbolt -- yet another fast speed peripheral connection protocol. While eSATA isn't a wide-spread Mac connectivity protocol, inexpensive cases abound for the connector, which modern Macs without PCI-e slots can't handle. Connectivity specialists Kanex has a solution with the KTU10 Thunderbolt to eSATA and USB 3.0 adapter. Adapters can be problematic, as any computer user knows by now. How well does the small Kanex box suit the bill? Check our review to find out.
