Following the launch of what it claimed to be the smallest USB 3.0 flash drive, the U819V, PQI announced another super-compact model, the U822V Speedy. A successor of the U822V, launched back in May, the U822V Speedy features higher transfer speeds of 88 MB/s reads with 66 MB/s writes. It retains the same rotary cap design as its predecessor. The U822V Speedy also features an improved PQI-patented COB USB 3.0 connector, which improves compatibility between USB 3.0 and USB 2.0/1.1 standards. Measuring 14.0x 32.5 x 8.6 mm, the drive weighs about 7 g. The drive is available in two new color schemes, light-red and panther-black. It is available in 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB capacities.
