Transcend rolls out shock-resistant USB 3.0 hard drive

media_1312972424805.png

Traveling with a laptop can be tough on gear so the new portable and shock-resistant StoreJet 25A hard drive from Transcend looks like an attractive proposition. Prices for the USB 3.0 drive start at $123 for 500GB. Although the 25A3 version uses USB 3.0 (Mac users won't benefit from the increase in transfer rates, though the device will still be supported), a cheaper 25A2 option adopts USB2.0.

Press release:

Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today released a new addition to its StoreJet line of portable hard drives, the StoreJet 25A. This new drive boasts an attractively slender yet shock-resistant design, and is available in both SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 versions. Featuring strikingly fast data transfer speeds, powerful software tools and up to a full terabyte of storage capacity, the StoreJet 25A is ideal for everyday backup, storage, and transport.

Next Generation SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Interface
The StoreJet 25A3 portable hard drive is equipped with a next-generation SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection interface that provides 10 times the bandwidth of USB 2.0. Thanks to the improved connection speed of USB 3.0, the StoreJet 25A3 delivers real-world transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s – fast enough to transfer a full DVD in just 50 seconds. If ultimate transfer speed is not absolutely essential, the StoreJet 25A2 USB 2.0 version of the drive offers the same eye-catching design and features at an attractive price.

Slim and Compact, yet Durable and Shock Resistant
Although slender and lightweight in design, the StoreJet 25A offers robust durability, with thorough defense against data loss resulting from accidental shock or collision. The slimmest drive to incorporate Transcend’s exclusive shock-absorbing suspension damper system, the StoreJet 25A effectively protects its internal hard drive by softening the force of impact in case of accidental slips or falls.

Powerful Software with One Touch Backup Convenience
Much more than just a place to store files, the StoreJet 25A can also function as an advanced data backup station, with a convenient One Touch Auto-Backup button for swift, effortless data backup and synchronization when used with the bundled Transcend Elite software. Aside from its comprehensive backup features, Transcend Elite also offers robust encryption security and time-saving mobile internet bookmarks. Additionally, the StoreJet 25A includes Transcend’s own RecoveRx™ software – an extraordinarily effective tool for bringing back accidentally deleted or lost files.
The USB 3.0 StoreJet 25A3 is currently available in three capacities: 500GB (US$123 MSRP); $750GB ($147 MSRP); 1TB ($194 MSRP), and the USB 2.0 StoreJet 25A2 is also available in 500GB (US$114 MSRP); 750GB (US$138 MSRP); and 1TB (US$182 MSRP) capacities. All models are backed by Transcend’s three-year limited warranty.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Introduction


Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
