Psst, hey you. Yes, YOU! Take a look at that thumbnail picture over there. Do you see it? Groovy, but do you know what you're looking at? Well, yes, it's a flash drive, but not just any flash drive.

Super Talent's newest SSDs sport both SATA II and mini-USB connectors.
Solid state drives (SSDs) are rather simple devices that you plug into your PC and fill with data. Not all SSDs are created equal, however, and Super Talent's latest twist on flash based storage is a dual-interface design. In addition to a SATA II interface, Super Talent's new UltraDrive MX2 SSDs also feature a mini-USB connection. What's the point? To make upgrading easy, Super Talent says.
How many times have you sat and around and said, "Gee, I wish this SSD line came in smaller capacities!"? We find ourselves on the opposite end of the spectrum, but admittedly there are scenarios in which a smaller SSD might get the job done, and for less money. Maybe you're looking for strictly a boot drive with a little bit of headroom, and/or want a speed boost on a strict budget. Whatever the reason might be, Intel is going to oblige with two new 335 Series SSDs.
Patriot Memory's latest USB flash drive is aimed at car audio enthusiasts.
Patriot Memory today announced the availability of its new ultraportable Autobahn USB 2.0 flash drive. The tiny storage container sports a micro size form factor that measures 0.29 inches (D) by 0.63 inches (W) by 0.74 inches (H), which is small enough to swallow, though we highly discourage trying to pass potentially toxic gear through your digestive system (besides, it's not a flavored USB drive).

Building a reliable drive was Seagate's primary focus, and the company claims its new HDD has an annual failure rate of just 0.55.
Not even a 10-ton truck is a match for LaCie newest flash drive (and yes, LaCie tested that claim).
Come hell or high water, or even a 10-ton truck, LaCie's new XtremKey USB 3.0 flash drive has little to worry about. As the name implies, LaCie's latest flash drive is extremely tolerant to harsh conditions, such as being submerged in water down to 200 meters (over 656 feet). It has a protective cap made of thick ZAMAC metal alloy and wear-resistant screw threads with a rubber O-ring.
New firmware for Plextor's M5 Pro SSDs provides a free performance boost.
Wouldn't it be awesome if, after buying a new sports car, the dealership called you in for a free tuneup that netted you additional horsepower? Unfortunately, life doesn't always work that way, just don't tell that to Plextor. The former optical drive player that now concentrates its efforts on solid state drives (SSDs) just announced the availability of its 100K Extreme firmware update for its M5 Pro SSD line.

Mushkin will start shipping what it claims is the world's first 480GB capacity mSATA solid state drive (SSD) in January 2013, the company announced this week. Unlike traditional SSDs, mSATA (Mini-SATA) drives are much smaller and sport a connector that looks similar to a PCI Express Mini Card interface that's even electrically compatible, though the data signals need to be fed to the SATA host controller.
