Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the launch of its new JetFlash 560 USB flash drive. The new JetFlash 560 features a simple yet exquisite design with easy-to-use retractable USB connector, offering a touch of urban sophistication as well as ultimate convenience. The JetFlash 560 is the newest member of Transcend’s JetFlash series that boasts an excellent combination of style and performance. Its silver-tone metallic case is embellished with a classic checkerboard pattern, which adds a chic urban touch to an otherwise dull portable storage device. Thanks to its use of ultrasonic welding technology, the sleek and trendy JetFlash 560 USB flash drive is rugged enough to withstand a few bumps and falls. In addition to its eye-catching exterior design, the JetFlash 560 also features a handy push-out USB connector. With a simple flick of the thumb, users can effortlessly extend and retract the connector for easy one-handed operation. Such retractable design not only keeps dust and debris out of the drive, but also ensures there is no cap to misplace or lose. The entire JetFlash lineup is backed by Transcend`s Limited Lifetime Warranty. For added value, users can freely download and install the exclusive JetFlash Elite data management tools for better mobile productivity. With the aid of this software, users can easily turn the flash drive into a key to log on to website accounts, or temporarily lock a computer to prevent unauthorized access. Offered with three different storage capacities, the JetFlash 560 is now available for a suggested price of US$15 for the 4GB model, US$21 for the 8GB model, and US$41 for the 16GB model.
