Sharkoon is tossing a new docking station of some sort onto the market every time I look around it seems. The latest offering from the company is the QuickPort Mini for 2.5" SATA HDDs and it can be had with a USB 3.0 port or a slower USB 2.0 port.
Hitachi has pulled the wraps off a new enterprise class HDD that is claimed to be the industry's fastest and most power-efficient 10,000 rpm enterprise class HDD. The drive spins at 10,000 rpm and uses the 6Gb/s SAS interface. The drive is a small 2.5-inch drive with up to 600GB of storage capacity.
Toshiba managed to quietly slip out a line-up of external hard drives on Tuesday, building up the library of already offered products. The drives are straightforward, even in their color scheme, and don't offer much in the "spectacular feature" category, but if you're in the market for a new external HDD, then these might just be the ticket.
I bet that many people who take photos and video on their camcorder just leave the content sitting on the internal HDD or memory card until they run out of space and are forced to move the content.

It is becoming a growing trend to see online retailers announce, or put up for sale, items not even announced by the manufacturer. Product leaks happen like that all the time. But in most cases, those ads, or product placements, usually get pulled in some capacity or another. That hasn't happened with the 250GB internal hard drive for the new slimmer Xbox 360. Despite not having a formal announcement from Microsoft, you can indeed go buy yourself a new hard drive if you really wanted to, right now.
When it comes to external hard drives, you don't want something that's as big as your keyboard sitting on your desk, next to your monitor. The whole idea is to have something compact, but that's perfectly capable of holding all of your necessary data. And, when it comes to the new Asus Eee 30GB hard drive, you'll have to keep it limited to the bare essentials.
Toshiba has announced a new line of small form factor HDDs that are aimed at different high-end markets. Three new HDD series were unveiled specifically for high-end computing, high-availability markets, and security sensitive needs.
Toshiba has announced its latest HDD offering for enterprise users looking to migrate to the benefits of SFF HDDs in the data center and other uses while still being able to use existing 3.5-inch storage hardware.

Samsung has announced a new HDD in the Spinpoint series called the F4 (not pictured). The new drive is for high-performance computing and has a 3.5-inch design aimed at desktops and servers. The drive spins at 7200 rpm.
