SOYO SlimEx Platinum
Do you remember SOYO? It has been almost ten years now since I built my very first computer system from parts ordered over the web. Back then, it was all about searching Price Watch for deals, and the AMD K6-II CPU. I clearly remember learning how difficult it was assigning IRQ addresses for dial-up modems, and how troublesome it was to load the drivers for Windows 98. In those days it was very common to find SOYO brand motherboards for sale almost everywhere you shopped, and most times those motherboards fetched a premium for the high-end accessories they featured. Those were the good old days, and that was the old SOYO.
These days SOYO is best known for consumer electronics, communication equipment, and several computer peripheral devices. SOYO hasn't produced a motherboard is several years, with the last being targeted for the Intel Socket-478 P4 based i875P chipset. Benchmark Reviews has decided it was time for the public to get reacquainted with SOYO, and so we begin by offering our review of the SOYO FM-SY-SLIM20GB 20GB SlimEx Platinum External USB 1.8" Hard Drive.
Ultra-slim, lightweight aluminum casing provides maximum durability and heat dissipation, while USB 2.0 offers throughput speed. The SOYO FM-SY-SLIM20GB 20GB SlimEx Platinum External USB 1.8" Hard Drive offers a high capacity storage solution within a conveniently sized enclosure. Not much bigger than most cellular phones, and only 2-3 times as wide as a flash-memory drive, the SOYO FM-SY-SLIM20GB could make a lot of sense for anyone needing to store up to 20GB of data.
