    Transcend announced today its brand-new ExpressCard/34 SSD series. The ExpressCard/34 SSD (Solid State Disk) has a capacity of up to 16GB and low power consumption, which makes it perfect for use as a mobile storage solution in notebook computers with ExpressCard slot. This type of slot is a new standard developed by PCMCIA to carry forward the benefits of "plug-in" I/O cards to the next generation of personal computing devices. Transcend’s ExpressCard/34 SSD is a smaller and faster plug-in module solution that supports USB 2.0 and PCI Express Applications, and perfectly matches mobile and desktop systems. The ExpressCard/34 SSD is compatible with Windows Vista and supports ReadyBoost function. Moreover, Transcend’s ExpressCard/34 SSD comes bundled with a portable USB adapter, which makes it work as a regular USB flash drive.

    That should provide some speedy external storage. I didn't see mention of price however. I'm willing to bet it's not cheap. lol

    I would hope 16GB of storage isnt more than 120 GB HDD. If it is, I dont see many folks going with this, at least, not for now. However, it is a nice little boost of storage for all kinds of data we all collect. Too bad they dont make something like this for the PC. I could definately use an extra 16 to 32GB just for movies.
