Additional External Storage Solution For Mobile Devices

Posted by Brad Wasson in "Digital Home Talk" @ 07:30 PM

"While Seagate went the mass storage route with a 500GB hard drive, today Kingston is announcing its Wi-Drive an external 16GB or 32GB wireless addition designed for mobile devices. The Wi-Drive can support up to three simultaneous users either through a free iOS app or by connecting to the Wi-Drive via a web browser."

As mobile devices proliferate, as the software capabilities for them expand, and as we get better at using them as an integral part of our our work and leisure, the need for more flexible and larger storage solutions becomes more apparent. There are solutions on the market now, including the Wi-Drive from Kingston. Data is loaded onto the Wi-Drive using a USB connection, and that data is accessed from your mobile device over your wi-fi connection. The Wi-Drive can support up to three simultaneous users either through a free iOS app or by connecting to the Wi-Drive via a web browser.

Kingston Brings The Speed with a 32GB, 600x Speed CompactFlash Memory Card

"Kingston has released its CompactFlash Ultimate 600x memory cards. Available in 16GB and 32GB capacities, the Kingston CompactFlash Ultimate 600x cards support UDMA mode 6 and offer read and write speeds of up to 90MB/sec. Backed by a lifetime warrenty, the cards are priced at £170.85 (32GB) and £97.55 (16GB). For added peace of mind, the price of theCF Ultimate 600x cards include free downloadable data recovery software from MediaRECOVER."

CompactFlash may be a dying memory card standard, but Kingston and professional photographers the world over still have a lot of love for this format - and I do as well. Although things are looking better for the speeds of SD cards with the release of UHS cards, right now CompactFlash wipes the floor with SD cards in the speed department. 32 GB of storage this fast would simply be awesome...you could shoot all day and never have to charge cards!

Get Transformers on a Kingston USB Flash Drive

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Talk" @ 09:00 PM

I was poking around Dell Canada's Web site today, looking at their latest configuration of the Dell Mini 10 - which now includes GPS incidentally - and noticed something rather curious. Dell was giving away a free 2 GB Kingston USB flash drive that includes a digital copy of the movie "Transformers". That's not something I've seen before - I'm starting to see digital versions of movies coming via managed copy with Blu-ray discs such as Watchmen, but coming pre-loaded on a flash drive? That's an interesting way to sell hardware...pre-loaded with content. Only in this case it's a promo from Dell where you get it for free.

Kingston Announces 16 GB SDHC Memory Card

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 03:00 PM

"Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is adding a 16GB Class 4 SDHC Flash memory card to give consumers greater storage flexibility and faster speed to optimize use of today's higher resolution imaging equipment. The new 16GB card is the largest capacity in Kingston's line of SDHC cards, which include 4- and 8GB SDHC Class 2/4/6 versions. "Higher resolution digital cameras and increasingly popular HD video camcorders require high capacity memory cards with faster data transfer rates (DTRs) to maximize overall performance of the recording device," said Jaja Lin, Flash memory marketing manager, Kingston®. "Our new 16GB Class 4 memory card answers the performance needs and expands Kingston's product line to provide a memory solution for every application." Even with today's high resolution recording devices, a 16GB memory card can store literally thousands of photos and hours of high definition video. For example, the new 16GB SDHC card can capture more than 7,500* images (with a 6MP camera) and more than four hours* of video (for 6Mbps HD Extended recording)."



The march toward more storage continues with Kingston releasing this 16 GB SDHC memory card. It's not just about storage space any more though - with the increasing number of HD video cameras that record to Flash storage, speed matters as well. This new line of Kingston cards is offered in three different speed classes: a class 2 card is rated for 2 MB/s, class 4 cards are rated for 4 MB/s, and class 6 cards are (wait for it) 6 MB/s. A class 4 card with 16 GB of storage will run you $231 USD MSRP, so it's not exactly cheap...but 16 GB in such a small package is sure tasty!
