Active Media Products Launches 100MB/sec
eSATA Flash Drives
16GB and 32GB External SATA Drives
in 3-Inch Case
Fremont, California - March 22, 2010
- Active Media Products, a leading
manufacturer of SSDs and USB drives, today launched eSATA (external
SATA) Flash drives that boast sequential read and write speeds up
to 100 and 55 MB/sec respectively, about three times faster than the
fastest USB 2.0 flash drives. "There are millions of laptops
out there with eSATA ports that can take advantage of this performance."
commented Jerry Thomson, VP of Sales at Active Media Products.
Active Media Products builds these drives with
either 16GB or 32GB of MLC NAND flash. With no moving parts, they
offer the same outstanding reliability as SSDs. "eSATA flash
drives are a great storage solution for people who need faster transfer
speeds than USB 2.0 can offer, yet still need the portability of a
USB flash drive." Mr. Thomson added. Because many computers don't
have an eSATA port, these drives also feature a Mini USB 2.0 port,
so they can be used in virtually any PC or desktop.

through Amazon for $69.95 (16GB) and $109.95 (32GB).
