Seagate Hard Drive

Best Hard drives seem to have become a thing of the past based on the popularity of mobile devices. These newer hand-held devices have the potential to perform almost everything that a hard drive can, but at a faster rate. While this continues to be a problem in the industry, Seagate has taken it upon themselves to fix this ongoing issue with their latest multi-actuator technology.

Digital Trends compares hard drives to ‘old-school record players’ by having arms with needles accessing data that the drive may have. For a clear picture both actuators act as arms and read data from a single point to be able to read twice information in the same time.   

With this strategy is how Seagate plans to have what Digital Trends call as a ‘Leap Frog’ Effect. Seagate’s plans to be able to move twice as much data with their newest technology but still lacks that ability to be able to be mobile.

Digital Trends give a more detailed description by statement that,

"The old-school SATA 3 connector used by bulky hard drives and 2.5-inch solid-state drives will always bottleneck performance. Its capable of moving data at up to 600MB per second, which you will never experience although 2.5-inch solid state drives can come close. Hard drives with platters that spin up to 7200 rotations per minute (RPM) can reach up to 160MB per second, and those that spin at 5400RPM are even slower."

Seagates hopes to create something more efficient for the industry. Improving the movement of data is one of the main goals that Seagates has and wants to capitalize on. For an example that Digital trends also refers to is being able to transfer data in two smaller files opposite to one large extensive file.

D-Link EXO AC2600

The D-Link router has been greatly improved with their D-Link EXO AC2600 (DIR-882) wireless router. This router comes equipped with an easy to understand interface, a mid-range price tag and quick to read USB ports.

As far as performance goes, the DIR-882 can really hold its own. For a wireless router costing roughly $150.00 it does everything it needs to and more. The DIR-882 offers dual band Wi-Fi running at 800mbps for the 2.4GHZ band and 1733mbps for the 5GHZ band. Another reason this little guy is on the map, is because it is the first router that can handle hardcore data transfers through 160mhz bandwidth.

The selling point for this little guy was its ability to handle 4k gaming and streaming, a cut above the average 1080p capabilities. The four antennas, positioned on specific points on the top of the device allow for better access to signals and are extremely durable, despite their positioning.

Each port has been carefully placed on the wireless router, allowing the user easy access to the 3.0 USB port, 2.0 port and RJ45 ports as well as the on/off button. The software is easy to get the hang of and incredibly user friendly. There is a new feature that allows you to drag and drop information instead of manually putting everything into each section.

This means you have more control over what devices are using what bandwidth to ensure your systems are running nice and smooth. You can also auto connect devices to their respective portals to make sure a device isn’t eating away at the bandwidth, but this option can also be turned off if you wish.

Overall, this wireless router does incredibly well. It has one other competition on the market currently, the ASUS BRT-AC2600. While both routers have similar stats the real deal breaker is going to be the price. ASUS BRT-AC2600 is double the price of the DIR-882. If you’re looking for a router that can handle whatever you throw at it, the DIR-882 should be your top choice.

Toshiba Flash Memory

In 1987, Toshiba invented flash memory. They then began to mass-produce flash memory starting in 1991. Capacity has been increasing while innovating a more compact design. Because there were some challenges throughout the years trying to increase capacity while decreasing size of the design, almost 10 years ago Toshiba then invented the idea of a 3D flash memory stacking technology.

A new type of flash memory has been released by company Toshiba America Electronic Components Co. This new flash memory by the name of BiCS FLASH is stated to be the next generation of flash memory on the market. Including many new features such as 4-bit-per-cell, and capable of being equipped with (QCL) quadruple-level cell technology. These newer flash memories differentiate themselves than previous flash memory components as they would previously use (TLC) Triple-Level Cell technology. In comparison to the 2D NAND flash memory, the new 3D BiCS FLASH has higher die area density along with condensed chip size.

Another significant difference that the newer QLC BiCS Flash is capable of is its potential life span. With the enhanced features, its longevity is lengthened from 512 gigabits from the TLC to 768 gigabits per die. The BiCS FLASH can be used for memory cards, tablets, consumer SSDs, and enterprise applications.

The new QLC is stated to have the world’s largest die capability recorded currently at 768Gb/96Gb. Its modified structure allows for the extensive capability as it is brought together with a 64-layer cell structure. The unique structure gives the QLC BiCS FLASH to be able to produce a 1.5-terabyte in a single composed unit.

Senior vice president of Toshiba America Electronic Components Co., Scott Nelson, stated that

“There will always be demand for compelling storage solutions that bring higher densities and produce a favorable cost/performance equation – our QLC technology falls squarely into that sweet spot. History has proven us right in the past when it comes to our visionary flash memory roadmap, and we fully expect QLC BiCS FLASH to continue our industry-leading track record.”
