Flash Drives are no longer devices that only hold presentations and other random documents. SanDisk just announced 64GB versions of Wireless Flash Drive, and Wireless Media Drive. These flash drives not only store data, but will also stream media content to your mobile devices right from the flash drive.
Transcend has recently announced 128GB 600x and 64GB 300x SDXC UHS-1 cards and is capable of offering transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s and 45MB/s respectively. These memory cards offer not only the storage capacity, but also the operational speed needed to save, store and transfer huge numbers of high-resolution photos and HD videos without any difficulty.
Transferring files between 2 computers has been made extremely easy for a while now with flash drives. These devices are small enough to fit in our pocket, deliver fast transfer speeds, and can hold quite a lot of data. Today we are taking a look at one of Kingston’s latest flash drives. Announced this year at CES the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 is a USB 3.0 drive that features read speeds of up to 150 MB/s and write speeds up to 70 MB/s. The drive has a solid metal matte finish and retractable design that protects the USB connection when it is not in use. Today we have the 64GB version on hand to see what it can do!
Not that long ago Kingston announced a new entry into their HyperX line, Beast. The Beast memory kits are designed for users who want the largest capacity memory available, but still want that performance memory speed and quality. HyperX Beast is part of the Predator line so it is made for both power users and enthusiasts. As I said these kits are for people who want large capacities so the lowest capacity kit available is 16GB. Kingston was nice enough to send us the “big boy” of the line which is the KHX21C11T3FK8/64X kit. This a 64GB (8x8GB) kit running at 2133MHz with timings of 11-12-11 at 1.65v. So let’s get started!
The term “caching drive” is something that many people are becoming accustomed to as are we. We really started seeing these caching drives when Intel came out with their Z68 chipset that allowed you to add a smaller solid state drive to your existing drive, which would increase overall performance. This is great for people who have an Intel Z68 motherboard, but what about everyone else? This is where OCZ’s Synapse Cache drive comes in. It is a SATA 6GB/s solid state drive, but comes with software that allows you to make it a caching drive on any PC system. Read on as we check it out!
Remember the day whenever 8GB Flash Drives were highest capacity drives on the market and cost a fortune? That time is no longer as we have a chance to look at the Super Talent Luxio 64GB Luxury Flash Drive. Available in three different colors: black, silver, or wood grain, the Luxio Series drives are also available in 16GB and 32GB sizes. This flash drive is so large that it could be used as another hard drive for your system. But how much will it cost you? Read on further to find out.
