SlashGear Week in Review – Week 33 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 33 2008

More laptops, netbooks and mobile workstations than you could shake the proverbial stick at this week, with fresh offerings (and more than a few rumors) from many of the big companies.  HP took the wraps off of three mobile workstations, complete with an amazing 17-inch DreamColor option, while Dell and Lenovo both had a version of their own.  Dell went for pure specs, with a maximum 16GB of RAM in their Precision, while Lenovo took a more offbeat view and added a digitizer panel in their W700's palmrest.

A little more compact, Dell launched their fourth generation Latitude E-series models, and SlashGear was in San Francisco to bring you live images.  Dell's attempt for the headlines included 19hr battery life (on one particular model) and Instant On functionality.  All well and good, but Gateway perhaps just eases ahead in the bargain stakes with their new P-7811FX Centrino 2 gaming notebook.

Iomega 500Gb DVR Expander Review

Iomega 500Gb DVR Expander Review

Anyone with a Digital Video Recorder is probably not a stranger to running out of storage space and being forced to delete old programs. What you may not be aware of is that there are a few products out there claiming to make expanding that storage straightforward: essentially a plug-n-play external hard drive to add capacity to your DVR. The Apricorn DVR Xpander and Western Digital My DVR Expander are two such examples, and here we have a new kid in town, the Iomega DVR Expander.

Iomega have announced a new hardware and online services bundle that marks their first collaborative release with EMC stablemates Retrospect and Mozy.  Buyers of Iomega external hard-drives will be offered both copies of Retrospect Express, for managing local backups, and 2GB of online storage courtesy of MozyHome.  In a discussion today, Jonathan Huberman, President of the Consumer and Small Business Products Group at EMC Corporation, described the integration of hardware and software as the first step toward making remote backup and 'cloud' storage more accessible to users without the benefit of dedicated technical support teams.

Iomega has announced a number of new storage-based products, ranging from simple external hard-drives to media converters and DVR accessories.  Most interesting are the Screenplay HD and the Media Xporter Drive.  The former, shown here, is a hard-drive and media player, that hooks up to a HDTV and surround sound system (via HDMI) to play stored video; it's priced at $199.5.  The latter is intended for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, connecting via USB and automatically converting any AVI (or any of 20 other formats) media on its 160GB storage into files the console can recognise and play; it's priced at $104.45.

Home Network Hard Drives – Iomega’s new cost-efficiant NAS solution

Home Network Hard Drives – Iomega’s new cost-efficiant NAS solution

One of the best ways to keep all of your data in one place is by using a NAS. If you're not familiar with the acronym, it stands for Network Attached Storage and it's basically a network device for the sole purpose of storing files. They come in all shapes, sizes and prices. Iomega has just announced a new line of affordable NAS drives.

I personally just have an old Dell PC running a copy of FreeNAS to keep all of my files, I already had the hardware, and the software was free. Unfortunately it's a full tower, so it takes up a lot of room and uses more power than is really necessary. Iomega's new Home Network Hard Drives take up about as much space as a regular external drive, and will certainly use less power than a desktop.

Iomega is rolling out two new external storage drives just for Mac users. The larger UltraMax sits nicely on your desktop with a whopping 1TB capacity while the ‘Black Series Portable Hard Drive’ is slim and compact with a 120GB capacity. They both come with FireWire and USB 2.0 ports as well as Retrospect Express backup software.

The UltraMax operates in RAID 0 mode by default, but can be switched to RAID 1 Mirroring for data backup. The Black Series drive is a small bus-powered hard drive that can operate without an external power source and spins at 5400 RPM.
