Kingston was showing off 4 new flash drives, the one I was most impressed with is the HyperX one. I mean, their HyperX PC memory is impressive so I can only expect similar speeds from this flash drive, and it delivers with a write speed of 20MB/second and read speed that’s 10MB/second faster, this thing is built for ReadyBoost. You can get these drives for 74, 131, and 266 dollars in capacities of 2, 4, and 8 gigabytes respectively.
If the 2, 4, 8, and 16 gigabyte capacities weren’t large enough for you, you’ll be happy to know they’ve moved up on the binary scale to a new 32GB capacity. These flash drives are nearly impossible to destroy, they are element proof and have had all sorts of nasty things done to them in an effort to figure out just what the physical limits are.
I don’t know about you, but I hate having to convert my videos to whatever format/dimensions/size the device I am trying to load them onto requires, so you better believe I am happy to hear about what Pinnacle is bringing to the table. You plug in this device, and your choice of iPod Video, iPod Nano 3rd edition, iPod Classic, PSP, or USB flash drive or hard drive and you can instantly start recording to whatever device you just plugged in.
Not much is known about these USB flash drives other than they are made by Lenovo, and have a similar design on them as the Lenovo Olympic laptops. Oh, and they look dumb, and cheap, and might contain lead, just kidding about that last one, sort of.
The laptops looked good, the “Cloud of Promise” as they call the swirly design was ingenious, and like I said, on the red-lidded laptop, it looked great. But this flash drive looks like it was made from a Coke can, so they should have stopped with the laptops.
