Brando’s SATA HDD Dock Jumps into USB 3.0

Written on December 22, 2010 by Chris Martin

It's been almost a year since Brando released its last SATA HDD dock with almost no trace or publicity that another one will come around soon and that made us worry a little. But now they're back.

Priced at a whopping $140, Brando’s finally gave in to the trend as they unveiled the new SATA HDD Docks that’s USB 3.0 ready, equipped with three SuperSpeed USB ports at the back and an opening at the top which allows users to plug in 2.5 or 3.5 inched SATA hard drives into it.

It’s an amazing tool for backing up, cloning, and transferring files with a theoretical data transfer speed of 5.0 GB per second. Ten times way faster than the speed of USB 2.0. The price is an overkill, but if speed is what you want, then speed is what’ll you get with this piece of metal.

Sharkoo, Brando’s closest competition, already offered the USB 3.0 docks last 2009, although 3.0 was a little irrelevant and unnecessary until this year.

Brando is a worldwide online store dedicated to providing its customers with top of the line USB peripherals, parts, accessories, and other interesting USB stuff out there.

250GB Hard Drive for Xbox 360 S to Buy Separately

Selling the 250GB HDD for 250GB Xbox 360 S separately was just a secret. Then came the box shot of 4G Xbox 360 that revealed everything. What's with the hard drive and why would Microsoft do that?

250GB Xbox 360 S, supplied with 250GB hard drive, will be available to buy separately. The revelation came from a box shot of the upcoming 4GB Xbox 360. However, the new style hard drive is not yet on sale. But it will probably be when the 4G Xbox 360 hits the market next month. The new console, with 4GB internal memory, allows you to upgrade the hard drive space by slotting another one into a port found on the base. Though not officially disclosed by Microsoft, selling of individual 250GB HDD for Xbox 360 S is a predictable move. Hard drives supplied with older Xbox 360s already made its way to the market. So the question here is, why keep it a secret when everything is now out in the open? Well  it’s because they are proprietary hard drive for Microsoft consoles that’s worth a fortune.
