Model: Memorex TravelDrive and Mini TravelDrive
Provided By: Memorex
Memorex has been a leader in the storage industry for more than 40 years. Founded in 1961, they got their start by manufacturing data backup tapes for the developing computer industry. They soon had the world asking themselves "Is it live, or is it Memorex?" with the introduction of their line of recordable audio and video tapes. These days Memorex has made the shift from analog to digital and has turned themselves into one of the world's leading manufacturers of recordable CD and DVD media.
While best known for their recordable media, Memorex offers a wide range of storage products including memory cards and USB flash drives. This spring Memorex announced that they had given their TravelDrive USB 2.0 flash drive a brand new look. The list of improvements included a slimmer, more ergonomic design, pen-like cap, cool looking blue wrap-around LED and a reinforced lanyard connection point made out of cast aluminum. Best of all, it comes with a limited 2 year warranty.
More recently Memorex unveiled a smaller version of the TravelDrive. Appropriately named the Mini TravelDrive, this new flash drive is only 2.25 inches in length. While shorter, the Mini retains many of the features found on the full sized TravelDrive. Memorex's new flash drive also comes with their Secure TD software. With this software, consumers can set a password, preventing unauthorized access to their files.
