Memory card maker Lexar has added a new capacity to its Professional 400x series CF cards, with the industry's first 256GB example. It will write at 60MBps at a minimum and is compatible with UDMA 7 devices. It's said to be ideal for those who capture large amounts of 1080p video.
Crucial and Lexar together put out a pair of high-speed storage options ahead of CES. Topping the two is a special 50GB Adrenaline version of Crucial's m4 SSD intended as a cache for an existing drive. While it doesn't have to be used that way, the combination of a 2.5-to-3.5-inch adapter bracket and special software turns the SATA drive into a buffer for frequently accessed files on a larger hard drive, speeding up the OS and apps without having to sacrifice space.
Lexar has just released the Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader that has dual card slots and supports UDMA CF, SDXC and SD UHS-I memory cards. It remains backwards compatible with older versions of those standards and gets a USB 3.0 connection for fast transfer speeds. The device is meant for both amateur and pro photographers or videographers who wish to minimize down time when transferring media.
Lexar Media has now released its 128GB Professional 133x SDXC memory card, the first in the industry that combines such a high speed and large capacity. It's paired with a 64GB version, and either sports a minimum transfer speed of 20MB per second. Both are meant for professional photographers and videographers who mostly shoot RAW or record a large amount of 1080p video.
Storage maker Lexar has announced two upcoming backup drives, the Echo MX and ZX. Although offering less storage than conventional backup options, the drives are essentially USB sticks, making them significantly more portable. Each contains automatic backup software offering 128-bit AES encryption of data.
Lexar this morning previewed the launch of the first 128GB, Class 10 SDXC memory card, the Lexar Professional 133x SDXC. There is also a 64GB card in the same series, and the two are made just for extended shooting in 1080p HD video. Each card guarantees transfer speeds of at least 20MB per second.
Lexar this week added a new, high capacity 128GB USB drive USB drive to its Echo SE lineup, first launched in January. The new Echo SE is seen both as large enough for a backup and portable enough to be a typical thumb drive. It should be relatively fast, at peak read speeds of 28MBps and maximum write speeds of 10MBps, and optionally locks down with 128-bit AES encryption.
Lexar Media has released its Professional 600X Compact Flash card and its associated reader on Wednesday. The cards are available in 32GB, 16GB and 8GB capacities. The card has a minimum sustained write speed of 90MBps when plugged into a UDMA 6-capable reader.
Lexar Media on Tuesday announced the release of its Professional 600x CompactFlash (CF) memory card, which allows for 90MBps transfer speeds using the UDMA 6 standard. With the announcement, Lexar is the second manufacturer to offer such speeds in a CF card, as SanDisk already offers a 90MBps product range. SanDisk offers up to 64GB capacities, while Lexar makes 8GB, 16GB and 32GB cards.
Lexar today put out a pair of memory cards aimed at those who need high capacities with more advanced cameras and phones. The 32GB Platinum II SDHC is one of the first cards to make use of Micron's particularly dense 34 nanometer flash memory and takes advantage of it to provide the capacity while still transferring data at about 60X. Although rated as a Class 4 (minimum 4MB/sec) card, the Platinum II is claimed by Lexar to write at a minimum 9MB per second and thus to work well for some RAW photo shooting as well as up to 12 hours of video for HD camcorders.
