M-Systems DiskOnKey Product Line Increases to 4GB Capacity(July 26, 2005)
M-Systems (Nasdaq:FLSH), the leading developer of USB flash drives (UFDs), today announced that it has increased the storage capacity of its DiskOnKey devices to four gigabytes.
The increased storage capacity makes the new device the ideal solution for numerous corporate and specialized tasks including large file transfers, data recovery and backup, and temporary archiving and operating system management. Additionally, the four gigabyte storage capacity is an alternative solution for users requiring portable storage that is capable of storing video and photos, or as a miniature digital music file jukebox.
"It is evident that the USB flash drive has become an ideal personal storage solution, and as users continue to demand new USB flash drive products that include applications, such as U3 smart software, they will find increased uses for higher capacities," said Blaine Phelps, worldwide marketing director for M-Systems. "The higher storage capacity available with DiskOnKey will provide a solution to the growing memory needs of consumers with continued quality and reliability."
Uses for the Four Gigabyte DiskOnKey Device:
- Store roughly four hours of compressed video (depending on format), such as MPEG, QuickTime and Windows Media Video.
- Collect the equivalent of over 2,800 floppy diskettes worth of data.
- Compile 1,024 digital music files, each four minutes long.
- Save countless text and graphics files.
Pricing and Availability
The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) for the four gigabyte DiskOnKey is $569. DiskOnKey partners will offer the four gigabyte device through their respective sales channels in North America, Asia and Europe later this year.
