Verbatim announces the arrival of its newest storage prodcut – its new solid-state drive, the ExpressCard SSD
The new card is a solid-state drive that provides ExpressCard slot-equipped XP/Vista PCs and OS X-equipped Macs® with plug-in storage that is up to five times faster than USB based ExpressCards.
With read speeds of up to 120MB/sec (800X) and write speeds up to 30MB/sec (200X), Verbatim’s new ExpressCard SSD offers significantly higher performance than USB-based ExpressCard SSD solutions, due to the throughput limitations of the USB 2.0 interface.
Based on the 34mm ExpressCard module (75mm x 34mm x 5mm), the Verbatim ExpressCard SSD is available with capacities of 16, 32 and 64GB.
The drive can work with OS X-equipped Macs as well as XP- and Vista-equipped PCs.
The high-performance, high-capacity storage solution comes bundled with Nero BackitUp 4 Essential (for Windows 2000/XP/Vista), a backup application that provides PC users with continuous backup of critical data.
“We’re excited about the launch of our new ExpressCard SSD because it offers all the advantages of a traditional SSD in a plug-and-play, integrated form factor,” said Mark Rogers, Verbatim Product Manager.
“Since it’s a plug-and-play device, there’s no hardware installation. It fits completely inside your laptop’s ExpressCard slot so you can easily take it with you for automated backup of your critical data, without the need to carry around or keep up with external devices.
It’s the best way to add storage capacity to your laptop without changing its footprint with external devices, or going inside the case to install hardware.”
The Verbatim SSD ExpressCards are now available through its distributor Astech Pengson Distributors Incorporated.
