Model: Imation Atom Flash Drive
Provided By: Imation
Imation is one of the most widely recognized and respected names in the storage industry. Originally known as 3M Data Storage, the company was formed in the early 1950s to develop storage media for IBM tape drives. As time went on, it expanded its product lineup to include audio and video tapes as well as floppy disks. In 1996, 3M spun off its data storage and imaging divisions to become Imation. More recently, Imation has made the shift from analog to digital and has established itself as one of the world's leading providers of recordable CD and DVD media.
While best known for its data tapes and recordable media, Imation offers a wide range of storage products including portable hard drives, solid state drives (SSDs) and USB flash drives. This spring, Imation announced its new Atom Flash Drive. Roughly the size of a paperclip, the drive is less than 1.5 inches long and weighs in at less than an ounce. The Atom also includes password protection and drive partitioning software and is enhanced for Windows Vista ReadyBoost. Best of all, it comes with a 5-year limited warranty.
