Memory and storage specialist Integral has launched the Fusion USB 3.0 Flash Drive. Measuring a tiny 21 x 12 x 4.5 mm and weighing only 3g, Fusion 3.0 is one of the smallest flash drives in the world.

The Fusion 3.0 Drive meets the demand for high-speed, high-capacity storage, in a compact and stylish flash drive. The low profile and non-protruding design makes the Fusion 3.0 ideal for "leave-in" multimedia environments such as Smart TVs, home and car audio, game consoles, laptops and tablets. The drive has been designed to fit easily and safely onto a key ring.

Since when does 20MB/s transfer entire DVD movie in under 1 minute?

4500MB / 20MBps = 225 seconds

That's almost 4 minutes. Video doesn't just magically appear on the USB drive, you have to copy to it first. And imo, WRITE speeds are the most important for USB drives, not read. Because read was never an issue, write was, which was and still is crap on most USB drives.

I like the USB drive though, it's small and nice looking and it's about time they start using USB 3.0. Even 20MB/s write is better than <10MB/s found on most of these tiny drives...

What t actually says is "Those speeds allow it to transfer an entire DVD quality movie in under a minute." as in, a DVD quality , significantly lower sized compressed movie.

It says DVD quality movie. So assuming whoever encoded it knows what they're doing, that's as little as ~300MB.

Just what i was thinking as they miss that part of information out, all so could be a bad quality as you do get them on DVD too.

They fail to say how long the movie is too.

Could mean any thing..
