Hey, it is the 11th hour! Are you like me (and many others) who cannot figure out what to get for all but your closest friends, family members, and romantic partners?

LaCie Expands USB Type-C Connectivity Offerings

For those looking for a drop-, crush-, and rain-resistant drive for all-terrain use with their USB Type-C compatible system, the Lacie Rugged USB 3.0 Type-C External Hard Drive combines weather durability with 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-C technology that not only delivers data-transfer speeds up to 130 MB/s, but is also equipped with a drop resistance of 4', the crush resistance of a 1-ton car, and water resistance in the rain, all of which will help Windows and Mac users keep their data safe

RAID Arrays for Photography and Pro Video

If you’re working with large media files, you’re probably going to need more storage than a single drive can provide. While you could just haphazardly put a bunch of drives together, a RAID array is a better alternative because it uses multiple drives together to increase speed, protect your data, or both. You can configure your own RAID array by using software, but an array with a hardware RAID controller will provide better performance. Try to stick to hard drives with the same size, speed, and even model for your RAID array, for optimal performance.

Choosing the Right Rugged Storage Drive for Active Lifestyles

External storage drives come in many forms. From SSDs and HDDs, you can have ample storage space or lightning–fast access to files. For compatibility with your systems, B&H carries portable drives that sport a variety of interfaces, such as FireWire, USB, or Thunderbolt. Of the two drive types, hard drives are more susceptible to failures since they retrieve data with a spinning platter–and–head design. Excess vibrations or drops can cause irreparable data loss, when the read-and-write head makes contact with the platter and scratches the magnetic data-storage surface.
