Flash memory is getting cheaper, faster and more prominent. Perfect for
the consumer. Super Talent in particular has done a great job of placing
pricing pressure on everyone else in the industry. The company's USB
3.0 drives are amongst the least expensive in the business, and now the
company is introducing a 32GB USB
3.0 flash drive for just $59.
The 32GB version of the Express Duo flash drive, which can top 67MB/sec
in testing, is shipping now, along with a 16GB version at $29
and an 8GB version at $14. A demo of the benchmarking is below.

USB 3.0 Performance at a USB 2.0 Price
San Jose, California - January 6, 2011 - Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced a new, larger capacity, 32GB version of their wildly popular USB 3.0 Express DUO line.
The fastest USB 2.0 flash drives are limited to a maximum READ speed of approximately 32MB/s. Super Talent's new USB 3.0 Express DUO can top over 67MB/s when plugged into a USB 3.0 port, yet remains fully-backward compatible to USB 2.0 and for about the same price. Super Talent is offering the 32GB USB 3.0 Express DUO for only $59.
"The USB 3.0 Express DUO has been our best selling USB 3.0 flash drive to date. We are please to offer the larger capacity 32GB at such an aggressive price point. With USB 3.0 prices like these, there's simply really no reason to buy a USB 2.0 flash drive anymore"., said Super Talent COO, CH Lee.
Now shipping all capacities.
