Lexar Media annouced a few cool additions to its high performance USB flash drives as well as enhancements to its exsisting lines. The leader in digital media demonstrated its broad line up, called JumpDrive, which is geared towards it’s consumers needs and lifestyles.
Their newest media product, JumpDrive Mercury, is a media card that does not need a computer to find out how much room is left on it. By combining E-Ink Technology with their flash media they have made it possible for you just to read on the card what is availble.
Also debuting at CES was a small USB drive called Jumpstart Firefly. It’s almost surprising that something so little could store, transfer or share multimedia up to 1GB in information, but it can. it will be in available in 256MB, 512MB and 1GB.
Not only is Lexar going to be adding new products to its already vast line of multimedia storage, they are going to be upgrading some of their exsisting lines as well.
The already high-capacity JumpDrive Lightning will feature increased performance of 150x write speed and will be available in a new 4GB capacity version. Lexar defines “x” within its speed-rating system as equivalent to a minimum sustained write speed capability of 150 kilobytes per second. A product that is already top of the line is made even better by Lexar.
The JumpDrive TouchGuard, a USB flash drive with an integrated biometric fingerprint sensor to authenticate a user’s identity and provide easy access to secured files and password protected websites, is going to be increased to 1 GB. The Jumpguard was introduced last year, and set standards for those of us that can’t remember our passwords.
