Ultra-rugged and portable these tiny drives are tough enough to go anywhere.
Verbatim is pleased to present its new family of Store ‘n’ Go Micro USB drives – a range of ultra-small, ultra-rugged USB devices providing storage of up to 8GB of data. Measuring only 30mm long, 12mm wide and 2mm thick, the drives weigh a miniscule 1,2 grams and are designed to be attached to a key ring, PDA or cell phone, enabling data to be carried with ultimate convenience. The new drives come in a range of vibrant colors and are available now in capacities of 2GB (orange), 4GB (green) and 8GB (purple).
The Store ‘n’ Go Micro USB Flash Drives are optimized for Windows® and Mac® users and offer read and write speeds of up to 30MB/sec and 13MB/sec for the 4GB and 8GB devices and up to 19MB/sec and 9MB/sec for the 2GB device.
To achieve capacities of 2, 4 and 8GB in such an ultra-small, ultra-portable form factor, Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go Micro USB drives feature new system-in-package (SIP) technology. SIP technology encapsulates all of the electronic components into a single miniaturized and sealed unit. As a result, the tiny drives resist water, dust, physical shock, electrostatic discharge (ESD) and are small enough and tough enough to take almost anywhere.
“We’re excited about our new Store ‘n’ Go Micro USB Drives because while they perform data storage duties just like ordinary flash drives, they’re much more portable and rugged due to the smaller encapsulated SIP form factor,” says Tracy Myers, Product Manager Flash & USB Memory, Verbatim Australia.
Enhanced for Windows ReadyBoost™, the Store ‘n’ Go Micro USB Drive becomes a dual purpose device for Windows Vista™ users who want to use a portion of the device’s unused flash memory to speed system performance without having to add additional RAM memory. With support for Windows, Mac and Linux systems, Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go Micro USB Drives also provides true cross-platform compatibility and a convenient way to transfer files between systems.
For security conscious PC users, the Store ‘n’ Go Micro USB Drives also include password security features to protect sensitive data, while allowing a public zone for open access and sharing of non-sensitive content (Password feature supported on Windows only). The complete package includes the Store ‘n’ Go USB Drive, pre-loaded password security software, and a mini lanyard for convenient carrying. As with all its products, Verbatim offers its customers free hotline support for the new USB drives.
