If there's one iconic thing in the long, storied history of consumer electronics, it's Maxell's "blown away guy." While the company doesn't run commercials featuring him any longer, he's still hanging around, seated deeply in his seat, being blown away by whatever new product the company launches.
The latest from the outfit is a new flash media
product line, which is perfect for storing photos, movies, music and all sorts of other media. The lineup includes the Maxell SD card, micro SD card and high speed CompactFlash card, which range in size from 2GB to 16GB and ship in a variety of different colors. There's also a handful of new USB flash drives in five different styles, all of which are detailed below in the full press release.

movies, music and more - includes the Maxell secure digital SD Card,
the Maxell micro SD Card and the Maxell high speed Compact Flash.
Maxell will also offer a family of high speed USB flash media in five exciting styles:
1. The Maxell USB Basic, available in blue and silver, is the ideal drive for file sharing and everyday applications.
The new Maxell lineup of high performance flash media is a natural
extension for the company that has been providing high capacity storage
solutions for over 40 years. "Consumers trust the Maxell brand for all
of their storage needs" said Vander Morais, Product Manager at Maxell.

technology secures and protects files by assuring that chosen files can
only be accessed through the originating computer. The Maxell USB Style
also features easy sync®, a unique and easy to use software that
organizes and stores all of your important files. Easy sync® recognizes
over XX files extensions and sorts the files into categories, such as

drive. The USB Style is available in black or white.
5. Users get a double duty bonus with the Maxell USB+, which
incorporates the technology of a high speed USB flash drive with a
micro SD card reader. No need for a separate card reader with this unit
– simply move photos and video from your mobile device to the USB drive
for easy to access storage. Enclosed in a sleek gray aluminum case, the
USB+ also offers the added feature of the organizational software easy
sync®. With the Maxell USB+ files can be quickly and efficiently
offloaded, organized and stored.
