Super Talent is no stranger to USB 3.0. The company has been producing USB 3.0 gear for some time now. But now they're breaking a price barrier. The company has just announced that their USB 3.0 Express Duo has broken the $15 price barrier. A USB 3.0 drive for under $20? That's a trend we can get behind.

Starting today, Super Talent will begin offering the 8GB USB 3.0 Express DUO for $14 and the 8GB version for only $29. The product is now sampling and will begin shipping on November 11th.

Flash drives are a dime a dozen, and many of of them look exactly alike. But every so often, you'll find that a company goes out of their way to really differentiate their product.

USB drives have progressively become smaller and smaller over the years, and while that's good in one sense, it's bad in another. We're talking about how easy it has become to lose a USB thumb drive, and when those drives have highly important information on them, that's a potential deal-killer. Verbatim has an idea for making sure you never lose another thumb drive. It's another thumb drive. The Store 'n' Go Clip-It USB Drive has received a Red Dot design award, mostly because it's designed to be clipped onto your shirt or belt. In other words, this USB drive goes where you go, so unless you lose your shirt or belt, you won't lose your thumb drive. It's available in a few different colors, and... Read more...
Just recently the USB-IF made an announcement that over 100 USB 3.0 devices had become certified, and while we aren't certain if this Kingston drive made the cut, it's definitely on the list.

It also marks the very first USB 3.0 flash drive for Kingston, which is definitely an important milestone. We're hoping that many more will follow in the months... Read more...

The company made famous for producing numerous SSD options when the world had none is now making a name for themselves in the flash drive sector, with four new USB 3.0 flash drives shipping to those who can't get enough performance in their lives. The new USB 3.0 Express RAM Cache drive is the headline device, which is available in 32GB and 64GB sizes. It implements a DRAM caching system to boost small block random performance by up to 300%, so performance junkies will surely take notice. Super Talent claims that this... Read more...
Size matters, does it not? And when you're talking about storage capacity, you want that size to be large. When you're talking about the size of your electronics, particularly portable ones, you want that size to be small. LaCie has delivered on both fronts with their new MosKeyto Flash Drive, a cleverly named device that represents one of the smallest USB drives the world has ever seen. The company calls this "a new breed" of USB key, as this one will have to be kept on your key ring if you hope to ever keep track of it. It measures less than 20mm and weighs 10 grams, and it's made in capacities as high as 16GB. That also includes an extra 4GB of Wuala Secure Online storage. LaCie even states... Read more...
