Lexar, a leading global brand of flash memory products, today announced the JumpDrive Triton USB 3.0 flash drive. Available in 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB capacities, the new JumpDrive Triton is more than 20 times faster than standard USB 2.0 flash drives based on benchmark tests, offering blazing-fast 155 MB per second read and 150 MB per second write speeds for exceptionally fast and reliable downloading and transferring of content.
In real-world usage, the JumpDrive Triton takes just 35 seconds to copy a 4 GB high-definition (HD) movie, compared to 11 minutes of waiting time with a standard JumpDrive USB 2.0 flash drive. Additionally, its compact form factor makes it one of the smallest high-performance USB 3.0 drives on the market, enabling users to manage, move, and store their content quickly and efficiently while on the go. The Lexar JumpDrive Triton also features a sleek metal alloy base and a high-gloss mirror finish.
"USB 3.0 technology provides the high-speed performance that allows end-users to download their content – whether it's videos, MP3s, documents, or photos - faster than ever, and take it with them for anytime, immediate access," said Aaron Lee, director of USB product marketing, Lexar. "The JumpDrive Triton USB 3.0 flash drive combines fast transfer speeds, ultra portability, and an appealing sleek design to provide on-the-go users with one of the fastest, smallest, and most reliable USB 3.0 flash drives available."
