Super Talent Technology, a leader of NAND Flash storage solutions, today announced their second-generation DataGuardian flash drive. The new DataGuardian is a high-performing USB 3.0 flash drive that keeps your files and private information safe from prying eyes, even if the drive is lost or stolen.

Users are asked to set up a password when using the DataGuardian for the first time. Every time after, the DataGuardian will immediately ask for the password when plugged in. This built-in password protection means there is nothing to download or install, no public/private partitions to manage, and no administrative rights are required.

The DataGuardian also protects users from autorun malware attacks, the most common form of malware attack affecting flash drives today. By keeping malware from auto-running, the DataGuardian can prevent malware from spreading onto other computers.

adata_premier_pro_sp600.pngADATA Technology today announces the launch of the SP600 Solid State Drive (SSD), an entry level solution to the SATA 6Gb/sec SSD specification. This move will allow both consumers who are new to SSDs, and also those who are especially cost conscious, to experience the lightning fast speeds of solid state drives at an attractive price point.

The SP600 delivers read and write speeds of 360 and 130 megabytes per second, and random 4KB read and write speeds are as high as 40,000 IOPS and 30,000 IOPS. Replacing a mechanical drive with a SSD not only will allow users to experience increased boot-up speeds, but it also is one of the most cost effective ways for average consumers to upgrade their systems. Additionally, the SP600 is completely silent during operation due to it having no moving parts.

The SP600 achieves a strikingly competitive balance between price and performance that serves as a perfect first step into the SSD world. The initial capacities of the ADATA SP600 SSDs are 32, 64, and 128 gigabytes.

Following a successful premiere at Computex 2012, world-renowned memory manufacturer KINGMAX announces the October 5th launch of the world’s most revealing COB (Chip-on-Board) type USB flash drive. Flash drive UI-05 features dynamic casing design in which the chip is housed under a clear glass ceiling that is both waterproof and dustproof, made possible with PIP technology. Innovative imBGA engineering allows the glass casing on the top side of the UI-05 to reveal the drive’s inner flash die and wire-bonding structure. A bright blue LED light on the tail end of the device indicates working status and helps forgetful users reminds users not to leave the drive behind.

Benefitting from the compact size and high yield rates of COB engineering, the KINGMAX UI-05 spans a range of capacities, including 8GB/16GB/32GB. KINGMAX’s own package technology has made it possible for the UI-05 to become the world’s 1st glass-ceiling USB flash drive. Delicate handling of compression and temperature require the finest level of manufacturing craftsmanship to fit the UI-05 with its glass ceiling. Revealing the UI-05’s circuit structure gives consumers a new product experience and expresses a sleek new direction in high-tech styling. Sturdy metal housing provides security and protection with a streamlined look that’s subtly fashionable and futuristic. The eye-catching blue LED draws the attention of those nearby and sends the message that the UI-05 is not just another unimaginative, utilitarian USB. This is a stylish, must-have device for anyone seeking good design and reliable portable memory storage.
