This is a massive amount of storage in very tiny, very portable package
East Rockaway, NY (PRWEB) August 17, 2006
Setting astonishing new standards for storage capacity in USB memory, TrekStor GmbH, Germany's largest maker of USB storage products, has introduced a USB stick with up to eight gigabytes of storage. Measuring about twice the width of current USB sticks, though thinner and shorter, the new TrekStor Model CS-D stick is available and shipping in six and eight gigabyte models.

"This is a massive amount of storage in very tiny, very portable package," said Hana Arad, president of Data Station, the U.S. marketing arm for TrekStor. Arad said that for its size – 1.25 inches wide, 0.375 inches thick, and 2.5 inches long, including cover -- the new CS-D is among the world’s highest capacity stick storage device. "Our eight gigabyte stick weighs less than one ounce. It is a remarkable achievement," said Arad.
For durability and good looks, the TrekStor CS-D USB stick features an aluminum casing and connector cover with a brushed metal finish. Power is supplied through the USB connection; a red LED is illuminated when the stick is in use. A neck strap and USB extension cable are included. The CS-D can be plugged directly into a USB port or be connected to a USB port using the supplied cable.
"The CS-D must pass the same stringent manufacturing and quality control process as other TrekStor memory products," said Shimon Szmigiel, TrekStor CEO.
Rather than using flash memory, the CS-D employs a miniature one-inch hard drive that is shock-mounted using an original, proprietary design. The CS-D is intended for same daily use as flash-technology memory products.
Available now at Amazon.com, J&R Music World, and RCS Experience, the CS-D comes in capacities of 6GB and 8GB. The MSRP is $139.99 and $179.99 respectively, and each is backed by a one-year warranty.
