CDRLabs.com declares, “The PioData iXflash is a great choice for consumers looking to backup or extend the storage of their iPhone or iPad.”

cdrlabs review ixflash

The iXflash is a tremendous tool for the iPhone / iPad. The iXflash has been extremely helpful for a great number of people around the world. Not only can the device easily backup all of your photos and videos, but you can also record videos directly to the iXflash without using any of your iPhone / iPad’s memory. You can store a great number of movies, music, files, and many other digital content, including versions that are not compatible with an iPhone / iPad without the iXflash app, as well as numerous other everyday helpful features. For those that already have an iXflash, you clearly understand the benefits. For those who have yet to purchase one, if you have an iPhone or and iPad, you would be doing yourself a great disservice if you didn’t pick one up for you and those you love this holiday season.

When I say the iXflash is the perfect tool for any iPhone / iPad user, you don’t have to take my word for it, click on the below link to read the review from the highly respected and accredited storage review site, CDRLabs.com:

Archival discs are the best option for cold storage as digital content providers look for the most effective way to reduce volume on their server farms

Archival Disc business

Every time you send an email, post a picture on social media (like Facebook), or send a snarky message through Twitter, and so on, you leave a digital footprint that is kept and stored by the platform you’re using. That means that companies like Facebook, Google, WhatsApp, etc. need to maintain adequate server farms to hold not just recent data storage, but also years of previous data. That old content is referred to as “cold data” because it’s rarely retrieved and essentially on ice until it’s needed again. Since cold data is not accessed frequently, to free up space for current and future content, the cold data is often offloaded onto another digital platform that can be easily stored, retrieved, and doesn’t take a lot of space, both physically and electronically. That makes optical discs the ideal storage medium for Cold Data as it fulfills all of the requirements.

In 2016, the thinktank IDC concluded that the world’s data storage stood at 16ZB, (that’s Zettabytes, with a “Z”, which is 1 trillion Gigabytes, that’s trillion with a “T”). Based on current and expected future internet usage, the IDC anticipates that number to increase to 163ZB’s by 2020. That means in 4 short years, we would have all contributed nearly 150 more Zettabytes or 150 trillion GB’s of digital content held in electronic storage. Based on these numbers, it’s expected that even if only 10% of that content needs to be offloaded onto Archival Discs (AD), which currently hold 300GB each, it would take roughly 800 million AD’s to hold that content resulting in a windfall of approx. USD $3 billion in revenue for the company(ies) that can tap into this growing market. That is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of potential for the AD market. So, this is the perfect time to get in and take advantage of the future of the optical evolution. That is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of potential for the AD market.

The reliability of the drive parts is the difference between a long life and frequently paying for replacement drives!

Drive reliability

When most people think about the most critical part(s) of an Optical Disc Drive (ODD), they typically think of the laser diode that reads the discs. Of course, that is a critical element and without it the drive cannot function. However, there is another critical element that is often overlooked and not given much consideration, the disc tray mechanism. That includes not just the tray itself, but also the gears, pulleys, and sliding mechanisms that allow it to extend and recoil smoothly and consistently.

Often, because it’s not seen as critical as other components, because production drives are designed for single drive PC use, many manufactures don’t put much thought behind how to enhance it. The problem is that while a typical computer owner with an internal disc recorder drive may open and close the drive infrequently, a duplication equipment user will depend on those drives opening and closing potentially hundreds or even thousands of times a day.

That’s why Vinpower’s line of duplication focused ODD’s ensure the drive tray is suitable for the real-world duplication environment. Vinpower’s PLUS and ROBOT PLUS drives are enhanced to allow thousands of in and out operation without failure. We physically modify each drive to handle the rigors of the duplication environment, especially for robotic autoloader duplicators.

Autoloaders require extended trays with more give and flexibility while continuously offering consistent tray extension. Since Vinpower produces its own line of autoloaders, we are uniquely qualified to understand the complications and the abuse these drive trays endure day in and day out, so we are most qualified to design a drive tray mechanism to function under these specific conditions.

If you are a duplicator or manufacture duplication equipment, be it manual towers or robotic autoloaders, contact Vinpower through our website, www.vinpowerdigital.com, or through a member of our sales and support staff to get more details about which of our many ODD’s would be the right fit for you.

The Retail market is changing by shrinking the marketplace, good to know that OPTODISC still supports the channel.

OPTODISC good for retail

It’s not difficult to see that the landscape for the retail marketplace is completely different than even just 5 to 10 years ago. At one time, there were strong distribution centers and retail stores and sites that gave the consumer choices and allowed for a healthy channel for manufacturers, distributors, and resellers to all coexist. Now, it feels as though those channels are contracting and many larger manufacturers are bypassing the middlemen and going direct to the consumers. Platforms like Amazon make it easy to sell direct, which has increasingly shrunk the marketplace. Long time staples in the retail market, like Toys R Us, Blockbuster, Radio Shack, and many many others have all gone the way of the Dodo bird, with unrest of similar major retails like Sears to follow. The market is trending toward new ways of consuming products and the lines between manufacturers and their dealer channels are becoming blurred, often competing directly against those they claim to support.

If you’re in the duplication market, you’re already concerned about the shrinking marketplace for your product or service. You don’t want to worry about whether you are being undercut through direct competition from your suppliers. The good news is that Vinpower’s OPTODISC gives you an alternative to the the shrinking network of options for high quality, low cost, recordable optical discs. OPTODISC respects the channel and wants to see a healthy marketplace, even in a niche field like ours. Plus, OPTODISC offers virtually every format of media, with every surface type, like white inkjet, white thermal, silver top, logo top, etc., meaning you don’t have to sacrifice options when looking for a new reliable source of media. OPTODISC maintains the highest levels of quality, reliability, and compatibility that can only be found in a smaller, more focused factory. Plus, with our lower overhead, we can offer similar and even better pricing when compared to the major factories.

OPTODISC can OEM and provide specialized packaging to make sure you can meet your customer’s requirements while maintaining the differentiation needed to be competitive in the market. OPTODISC respects the autonomy of the sales channels, and we want to build you up so your growth in turn helps propel our growth. As the saying goes, the rising tide lifts all boats…

Vinpower’s Standalone Autoloaders Providing Years of Reliable Production!

autoloaders

When Vinpower first developed our own line of standalone robotic autoloader duplicators, starting with the TITAN series, we weren’t sure how long the systems would last in the field. We knew we built the TITANS to be extremely robust, but only time would really tell. After nearly 15 years in production, we are still receiving compliments about systems working in the field that range anywhere from 10 to nearly 15 years old. When we started out, we were just hoping for the systems to work lights out through the 1 year warranty. But time has showed us that the TITAN systems were built to last way beyond expectations.

So if you’re looking to purchase a new standalone robotic duplicator to make continuous copies of your CD’s, DVD’s, or BD discs, Vinpower’s line of autoloaders is perfect for you. Vinpower offers a range of options from small low capacity loaders like the VDX-1 or Cube series, to the slightly larger 2 to 6 drive 200 ~ 500 disc capacity Aero, to the always reliable 4 to 8 drive 1000 disc capacity TITAN Supreme.

CDRLabs states, “…their new (Optiarc) VP series SSD, they’ve delivered a drive that focuses first, and foremost, on data integrity and long term reliability.”

Optiarc SSD CDRLabs

Data retention has become an integral concern in the flash storage industry. As the capacity continues to increase with advanced 3D NAND flash memory technology, currently utilizing 96-layer memory cells, SSD manufacturers are able to increase flash memory storage while decreasing the devices physical footprint. The problem is that 3D NAND cells are built vertically in strings, meaning a defect in a single cell will most likely negatively affect the performance of the entire cell string. This minor contamination could lead to massive failure potentially causing total data loss. Think about losing all your stored photo and video content on your computer’s SSD hard drive because a few cells were corrupted!

It is with that security and vulnerability in mind that Optiarc focuses on maintaining data integrity to prevent potential catastrophic data loss across its series of SSD. Optiarc is able to ensure this high bar of excellence across their full SSD product line by utilizing better components, an intensive QC process, and an enhanced FW to upgrade the Optiarc VP series of SSD’s beyond your standard retail version of SSD’s. You don’t have to take our word for it, click on the below link to read the review from the highly respected and accredited storage review site, CDRLabs:

http://www.cdrlabs.com/reviews/optiarc-vp-series-480gb-solid-state-drive.html

“When shopping for an SSD, people typically look at things like performance and price. What many don’t realize though is that reliability is just as important, especially when you’re trusting it to store your personal data. Optiarc knows this and, with their new VP series SSD, they’ve delivered a drive that focuses first, and foremost, on data integrity and long term reliability. Along with an enhanced firmware, the VP is equipped with high caliber components like Phison’s PS3111-S11 controller and Toshiba’s 64-layer BiCS3 3D TLC NAND. Furthermore, the company puts their drives through a rigorous testing process to further reduce the chance of failure and data loss.”

Optiarc drives are a much better value in the long run…

Optiarc more cost effective

To determine which product is a better value, you need to take into account the full cost of ownership over the lifespan of the product. You can’t just look at the difference in price, but you need to take into account the full cost associated with the product, including durability, reliability, and longevity, to get a full picture of what it will cost you in the long run.

For example, if we compare the high quality duplication grade Optiarc AD-5290S series of CD/DVD recorder drives with a competitor’s low cost CD/DVD recorder drive. In this scenario, the alternative drive is say a couple of dollars cheaper than the Optiarc drive. However, the alternative drive lasts only 6 months at most under the heavy duplication production, while the OPTIARC lasts at least 12 ~ 15 months under the same production load. That means that you would have to purchase 2 ~ 3 replacements of the alternative drive over the lifetime of a single OPTIARC drive. So that initial minor savings is not only wiped out, but you end up paying nearly 2 ~ 3 times more for the alternative drive(s) compared to the OPTIARC over the lifespan of the drives.

In this scenario, I only looked at the true hard dollar costs of ownership, there’s also the issue that the OPTIARC offers superior quality and less rejects than the competition. That’s another cost that should be counted when determining the overall cost of ownership. Optical drives may not be very expensive and therefore you may not think it’s worth doing a cost projection for them, however, when you consider the number of times you have to replace your drives, then you’ll quickly realize how those savings can add up.
