Silicon Power today announced the launch of its first SATA 6Gb/s solid state drive line, the Velox Series V30. The V30 is a performance upgrade over the company's V20 line and comes armed with a SandForce controller chip. Built around the 2.5-inch form factor, Silicon Power tosses in a 3.5-inch adapter bracket so enthusiasts looking for high-speed storage won't have any trouble stuffing the V30 into their current chassis.
Portable hard drive have one purpose in mind, and that's to safely shuttle your data from point A to point B. That doesn't sound very glamorous, but even so, there's no rule that says external HDDs have to look drab. Silicon Power's new Stream S20 portable hard drive looks anything but with its sleek design and metallic purple paint job, which the company says "demonstrates its luxurious style" while "declaring its superiority" with performance to boot.
