    Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today began shipping a 128 GB USB 2.0 flash drive that includes AES-256 hardware encryption as a standard feature.

    The new 128GB Luxio drive is smaller in size than most competing 64GB USB drives, measuring approximately 77 x 21 x 10 mm (3.0 x 0.81 x 0.37 inches). The pocket-sized drive stores up to 40,000 six megapixel photos or up to 32,000 MP3 songs. The 128 GB Luxio is offered in three colors: black, silver and wood grain, and is packaged in an elegant gift box. Each drive comes with a custom black leather carrying case. Luxio drives are now available in capacities from 16 GB to 128 GB.

    "If you need secure, high capacity portable storage in a really small, elegant case no competing product compares to the Luxio", said Super Talent Director of Marketing, Joe James. 128 GB Luxio drives will be available through online retailers worldwide this month for approximately US $349.

    And not a word on the drive speeds... Can you tell us read/write speeds? Their "data sheet" doesn't provide any information regarding speed.

    If it was something out of ordinary their data sheet would definitely include the speeds.

    It's cheaper than the one currently out.

    It also looks very nice. Might I say, a drive worthy of 128GB.

    its USB 2.0, speed is irrelevant. it cant be fast no matter how you look at it.


    roll out USB 3.0 already!

    honestly screw USB, just move on to using esata for external drives and high bandwidth devices already.

    19/7, 28/22.... when you're talking 128GB, you're still starting a transfer and leaving for a few hours.

    Definitely...

    Original sentiment still stands - USB2 just don't have the balls for 128GB

    ( Hell, I tried to put 6GB on a n SD card that writes at 11Mb/s this morning & landed late for work :\ )

    BJ try a program called teracopy, it MAY help, I have found it to be invaluable when copying to/from any number of devices(also good for copy across networks and drive to drive)

    teracopy is good, but it cant help slow USB speeds.

    Teracopys only real advantage is that when copying to a hard drive, it uses a qeue - mechanical drives cant handle multiple reads and writes at the same time, so adding to a qeue allows users who were too impatient to wait for the first transfer to finish, to just keep clicking.

    yeah, thats something i never really thought about, i was like man, the day when we see massive flash drives will be crazy.... Doesn't really make a difference if the transfers take all day. USB3 .... its still a bus, its still not going to be all that fast, thats already been proven.. sadly..

    I have found TC to make copy to some USB devices more efficent, it may not be "faster" or "much faster" but it gets done sooner DO NOT USE IT FOR MEDIA DEVICES/PLAYERS for some reason it doesn't play well with them at times(they wont read the files it moves to them)
