The company says with the massive speed of USB 3.0 a full 25GB HD film can be saved in about two minutes. The drive comes with a carry pouch and a USB 3.0 micro-B cable for connectivity to any port. The drive will work with any USB 2.0 or 1.1 port as well, just at lower speeds.
Capacities for the drive include 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. Like all SSDs, there are no moving parts inside the drive and it is made with MLC NAND flash chips. The drive has error correcting tech and read speeds are up to 240MB/Sec on USB 3.0 and up to 160MB/sec write with USB 3.0. Pricing is unknown, but these drives won’t be cheap.
