- http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/: The company Samsung is one of the most well known names in electronics. Their operations range from the manufacturing and distribution of cell phones, hard drives, etc. They also partake in businesses such as life insurance and various investments. The product I would like from Samsung (regarding hard drives) is their HD642JJ. Its features include 334GB Formatted Capacity per Disk, Serial ATA 3.0Gbps Interface Support, Intelligent compensation of external disturbance, and some other features. This product would be a nice addition to my current desktop configuration.
- http://www.avantrix.com/avcddvd.htm: The company Avantrix is, according to the website, “a leader in innovative and easy to use software utilities for both home and business use since 1996”. Their operations range from publishing award winning backup software, multi-purpose CD/DVD products, and security utilities. They have a variety of brands under their name, a few of which are WipeClean™, Backup Plus®, and ExpressZIP™. The product I would like from Avantrix (regarding CD/DVD writer/players) is their AVANTRIX CD-DVD Writer. It is supposedly very easy to use and user friendly, which is a big plus from my point of view. I used to use a Nero burner on my computer, I say used to because I no longer use it due to a simple lack of interest and I was not bothered with figuring out how it works. This being said, I think the Avantrix product I have selected, if it is indeed as easy to use as they claim, might have me reconsider and taking the time and trouble to burn DVDs, as opposed to downloading and watching everything via bit torrent.
- http://www.kingston.com/flash/datatraveler.asp: The company Kingston is the world’s independent memory leader. There is a long line of history and patents attached to the Kingston name. Some of which are: 1988, Kingston receives a patent for a single in-line memory module (SIMM) for memory expansion in a computer system; 1992, Kingston is ranked #1 by Inc. magazine as the fastest-growing privately held company in America; and in January 2007, Inc. Magazine honors Kingston Technology Founders with Inaugural Distinguished Alumni Goldhirsh Award. Their products primarily consist of various memory devices and readers. The product I would like from Kingston (regarding USB drives) is their 1GB USB 2.0 DataTraveler I. The reason this is so is because not only do I not possess a USB drive currently, but also I am very frugal (trying to get everything at the lowest price possible). I do not see myself needing a massive amount of space on my flash drive, so one gigabyte seems to be just fine for my needs. Not to mention, it is significantly cheaper than say an eight-gigabyte flash drive.
