Unboxing: Western Digital My Book 500GB

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: May 25, 2007

I have an old external generic drive case which I got at a cheap price of around Php560. Its now handling a 160GB Seagate HDD which I use to transfer media files from one workstation to another or to my laptop (the 54Mbps LAN just wouldn't cut it). So, when I saw this Western Digital 500GB My Book at a sale price back in Funan IT Mall, I grabbed one right away. I was un-boxing it last night while taking pictures... The thing looks like a black XBox 360. Been transferring files from the old hard drive to this one…

Western Digital outs 500GB, 7mm HDD for ultrabooks

Relevance: 93%      Posted on: April 11, 2012

Finally, Western Digital has their own 7mm thin hard disk drives that sits perfectly well with the current crop of ultrabooks. It's not as fast as the SSDs but you get the benefits of really large and inexpensive storage -- like 500GB. Prior to WD, Hitachi and Seagate already has super-slim HDD for ultrabooks available in the local market. Hitachi is the one being used in the Acer Aspire S3. However, both Hitachi and Seagate were only offering up to 320GB. The Lenovo IdeaPad U300e also used a HDD instead of the SSD which is used in the U300s. Western…

Western Digital My Book Elite 2TB

Relevance: 92%      Posted on: February 24, 2010

It's been close to 3 years since I first bought my first external HDD, a Western Digital My Book with 500GB capacity. I think it was the largest at that time. Nowadays, they come in 2 terabytes a pop like this WD My Book Elite. It's still self-powered and connects via USB 2.0 but the form factor has somewhat become smaller and more portable. We ran PassMark Disk Test to see how it performs and got the following results: That's 20.5MB/s sequential disk read, 17.5MB/s sequential disk write and 2.18MB/s random seek and write. The external drive also comes with…

Western Digital Around the World Contest

Our friends from Western Digital in the region is holding another contest and I'd like to invite our readers here to join in. Prizes include Western Digital HDDs and tickets to cool destinations like Maldives, Bali or Phuket. The mechanics is actually pretty simple but very challenging -- identify the city and the landmark in a collection of photos (they've strategically added the picture of a WD HDD in every landmark) As of today, there's about a dozen or more photos of landmarks in countries such as Philippines, Australia, Singapore, China, Japan, South Korea, etc. I tried the quiz myself…

We’ve started the talks since early last year and have recently founded a new group or association of digital commerce players in the Philippines.

The goal of the association is simple — promote and advocate e-commerce in the Philippines. • Establishing standards and best practices for a…

3TB on a Western Digital Caviar Green HDD

Relevance: 89%      Posted on: May 28, 2011

Late last year, WD and Seagate announced they will be able to cramp 3TB (that's terabytes or 1,000GB) on a single disk. Three terabytes is already pretty massive even in this age of torrents and large full HD movies. Imagine if you have at least 2 of these in your desktop PC at home. Western Digital Philippines sent us one of these 3TB drives to test out. The disk is composed of 4 platters with each platter having a capacity of 750GB. Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB 3TB capacity 64MB cache 5400 rpm Read Seek: 15ms Latency: 5.5ms SATA 3Gb/s…

1TB Laptop HDD from Western Digital is here!

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: August 11, 2011

Had lunch with reps for Western Digital Philippines today and they gave me this laptop HDD to check out and was surprised to see that it's the new 1TB 2.5" Scorpion Blue (the largest capacity available). This 9.5mm 1TB Western Digital Scorpio Blue (5400rpm, 8MB buffer cache) was announced just last July. This one uses the standard drive height so it's more laptop-oriented. Early benchmark results from Hot Hardware showed pretty good results. When I asked for details, they could not give me any specifics (especially the retail price) but promised it should be out in stores by next week…

Samsung L77: A slim 7.1MP Digital Camera

Relevance: 86%      Posted on: December 4, 2007

Got the chance to check out this new point-and-shot camera by Samsung. The L77 might look slim and simple but it packs some nice features within its class. At 7.1 megapixel with 7x optical zoom (non-extending), this is the slimmest digital camera Samsung has ever released. Not a big deal but to some, size does matter (I mean, the smaller the better). However, the small size has its obvious drawback. The battery is also smaller and stores less power. I reckon it can only carry half as much juice compared to competing cameras in the same line. And while others…
