As technology evolves, the release of new consumer devices with sophisticated user applications creates greater demand for higher transfer rates and performance connection between PCs and other devices. USB 3.0 meets that demand.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 17, 2011
EDGE Tech Corp introduces two models of its first line of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 DiskGO® flash drives - the DiskGO SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and the DiskGO Secure USB 3.0. EDGE is a leading U.S.-based supplier of DRAM and flash memory upgrades, portable computing products, storage devices, and other experience-enhancing technology solutions.
Both new models are available in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities to meet the growing adoption of the new USB 3.0 standard. A capless swivel design protects the USB connector and eliminates the need for a clunky cap. Each drive delivers blazing transfer speeds of up to 5Gb/s—10x faster than USB 2.0 flash drives (480Mb/s). The read and write speeds are as follows:
- 8GB: 47MB/s (read) 35MB/s (write)
- 16GB: 67MB/s (read) 30MB/s (write)
- 32GB: 70MB/s (read) 40MB/s (write)
DiskGO USB 3.0 flash drives can back up HD movies, photo collections, and entire music libraries in seconds when connected to a USB 3.0 port. EDGE’s Product Development Manager, Brandon Coles, said, “As technology evolves, the release of new consumer devices with sophisticated user applications creates greater demand for higher transfer rates and performance connection between PCs and other devices. USB 3.0 meets that demand with remarkable increases in speed and lower power consumption.”
CryptArchiver—powerful encryption and password protection software—comes standard on the DiskGO Secure USB 3.0 Flash Drive. Users can encrypt data using either government standard 256-bit AES or 448-bit Blowfish encryption. No software installation is required. The application is portable and fully processed from the flash drive. The DiskGO SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Flash Drive comes preloaded with CryptArchiver Lite, a trial version of the software that secures data using 128-bit AES encryption.
DiskGO USB 3.0 drives are backward compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 ports and work with both PC and Mac computers. All EDGE flash drives come standard with a limited lifetime warranty.
