RiData SSD Review

Posted in Life in General by aliencam | No Comments »

I just posted a review of the RiData Ultra-S Plus 128 GB 2.5″ laptop SSD over at MaximumCPU.net.

I can’t post the whole review here because of the publishing agreement (hey, at least I get to play with cool stuff like laptop SSDs!) but here is the intro and a link:

RiData released a line of SSD drives called the Ultra-S Plus. This series of drives was announced at CES this year, (how did I miss that booth?) and they claim it is much faster than many of the other MLC drives available today.

ATP EarthDrive Review

I forgot to mention this the day it actually  got posted, but my review of the ATP EarthDrive is available now at http://maximumcpu.net.

I can’t post the full review here due to the draconian publishing agreement that Nick forces on his review slaves, but here is what I can say:

The EarthDrive is a biodegradeble USB flash drive.  I liked the drive, it is very small, waterproof, pretty sturdy (except for it’s glossy finish) and fun to take apart.

The ATP Earth Drive is a “green” option in the realm of previously environmentally harmful computer accessories. It wasn’t too long ago that nearly every component of computers was fulled with toxins that could potentially hurt the planet if not disposed of properly. This USB flash drive compensates for these with a biodegradable PLA (a kind of plastic that can be made from corn) plastic casing, and a very small form factor. The components of the flash media are completely encapsulated, like one of the coin-sized flash drives or a micro SD card, so the flash drive is water and dust-proof, and it is resistant to some physical trauma. ATP also donates a portion of all EarthDrive sales to American Forests, which plants trees.

I wrote a review of the Shoreline Greensmart Laptop Jacket from Kolobags for Maximumcpu.com, and it was published this morning. Here is an exerpt from it:

“Kolobags (based in LA, California) produces and sells many different styles of designer laptop bags. While many of the upper end bags they sell may be expensive, they do have bags for every price range, and all of them are very unique. The bag I got to review was the Shoreline Greensmart Laptop Jacket 15.4”, in black and green.”

I can’t post the full review here, but to read the rest of it follow this link:
