Hagiwara ExpressCard drive

Hagiwara's US branch on Wednesday began shipping its distinctive ExpressCard/34 Flash Memory Drive, says Electronista. The drive, which had been revealed in Japan in December, is targeted specifically at the MacBook Pro and other notebooks that can use the extra speed of the ExpressCard format. In US form, Hagiwara claims the drive can read as quickly as 32MB per second, and write at 22MB/s. While the cards require no drivers and work with any Mac or Windows OS that supports ExpressCard/34 or /54 slots, Vista owners can use the card as a ReadyBoost cache for improving the responsiveness of systems with low RAM or slower hard drives. The card ships today in capacities ranging between 1GB ($67) and 8GB ($440).
