StorCenter ix2: Iomega's Surprisingly Cheap EMC Home Server

EMC bought Iomega so that it could start easing its business-grade storage gear into homes and small offices, and the StorCenter ix2 is the first official combo of Iomega brand and EMC juice.

Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000B is Power Efficient 1TB Drive, Has Encryption Too

About a year ago we brought you the first retail terabyte HDD, the Deskstar 7K1000, and now Hitachi has released the Deskstar 7K1000.B. And Hitachi's worked quite hard on it: With a 32MB buffer and a three-disk layout, it's apparently the "world's most power-efficient 1TB drive" and consumes about 43% less power when… » 7/10/08 1:00pm 7/10/08 1:00pm

Buffalo's Petite LinkStation Mini NAS Has 1TB Storage, a DLNA Server

Fitting a 1TB into a box measuring 5.31 x 3.22 x 1.57 inches isn't all that easy (most NAS boxes we've seen would crush a squirrel easily) but Buffalo seems to have not only accomplished this but shoved in a whole bunch of other features as well. The Mini's got a Gigabit Ethernet port, support for RAID 0 and 1, Active… » 4/08/08 11:41am 4/08/08 11:41am

Western Digital 1TB MyBook Drives Infested With DRM?

The guys at Wired and BoingBoing stirred up a hornet's nest this morning by alleging that Western Digital's 1TB MyBook World Edition external hard drives "won't share media files over network connections."

Dell, Alienware Start Selling Towers with 1TB Drives

Got a need for some extra storage space? Dell and Alienware just added the option for you to slap a 1 terabyte drive in one of their XPS, Area 51, or Aurora towers. That's a hell of a lot of space, although whether or not it's smarter to spread your storage out over multiple drives with less capacity or to consolidate… » 3/14/07 6:15pm 3/14/07 6:15pm
