Lexar SL200 1TB portable SSD revealed with USB-C

Published

on

There’s a new Lexar external data drive in the world this week called the Lexar SL200. This is an SSD, with SSD-level performance, which means it’ll roll at speed up to 550MB/s read and 400MB/s write. This machine has 256-bit AES encryption and connects with a USB-C port – that’s USB-C to USB-C or USB-C to USB Type-A.

Lexar’s SL200 was revealed with “drop-, shock-, vibration-resistant” and it comes with a three-year limited warranty. You’ll be able to get this piece of hardware in either 512GB or 1TB storage space, both with the same hardware dimensions. You can get it in whatever color you like, so long as it’s the one gray color you see here.

The first version of this drive that’ll be released is the Lexar SL200 Portable SSD with 512GB internal storage for approximately $90 USD. There’ll be a Lexar SL200 Portable SSD with 1TB internal storage available in July of 2020 for an approximate price of $160 USD.

UPDATE: According to B&H Photo, there’ll be a 2TB edition as well. All versions will work with USB 3.1 Type-C, and the dimensions of the product are always 39 x 2.36 x 0.37-inches. You’ll find the weight of the drive right around 0.09lb (without the cable) and it’ll be released to both Adorama and B&H in the near future.

This morning we also saw the release of a similarly sized – but very different – SSD from Samsung. The Samsung 870 QVO SSD is an internal device – made to be planted inside your PC – and it’ll appear in 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, and 8TB editions. They’re not cheap!

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
