Flash memory product company, Lexar, has announced two additions to its mobile USB 3.0 flash drive line: the Lexar JumpDrive M20c and the Lexar JumpDrive M20i.

The M20c is tailored for next-generation USB Type-C devices, and features two connectors – USB Type-C and USB 3.0 – to allow users to share content between smartphones, tablets, and computers.

The M20i is designed for use with iOS devices, enabling users to offload and move photos and videos between an iPhone, iPad, and computers.

Key facts:

  • Lexar JumpDrive M20c features a 2-in-1 design to include a USB Type-C and USB 3.0 connector with performance up to 150MB/s read and 60MB/s write.
  • Lexar JumpDrive M20i has a retractable 2-in-1 design to include a Lightning and USB 3.0 connector with USB 3.0 performance up to 95MB/s read and 20MB/s write.

Micron Consumer Products Group marketing manager APAC, Mathew Luu, said, “The long-awaited reality of Type-C connectivity is here, and the new Lexar JumpDrive M20c is meeting the emerging demand for a solution that allows users to quickly and easily share content across next-generation and legacy devices.

"With the endless amount of content being created, captured, and consumed every day, it’s easy to run out of space on your smartphone or tablet. Both the Lexar JumpDrive M20c and Lexar JumpDrive M20i provide users with an easy way to transfer, share, and offload content on the go.”

The Lexar JumpDrive M20c leverages USB 3.0 performance with up to 150MB/s read and 60MB/s write speeds, according to the company. Users can transfer a 3GB HD video clip in less than one minute, compared to the four minutes it takes using a standard USB 2.0 drive.

The reversible design of the Type-C connector aids with insertion and allows users to expand the memory of devices providing more room for images and videos. For added versatility, the drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices.

The Lexar JumpDrive M20i drive has a Lightning and USB 3.0 connector to make quick work of offloading files on the go - no charging or battery needed, and no network required. It works with the use of a free file management app from the Apple App Store which allows users to back up files when connected, and automatically and securely syncs files on the go.

The company claims the M20i provides read speeds up to 95MB/s and write speeds up to 20MB/s. For added versatility, the drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices.

Both the Lexar JumpDrive M20c and M20i are compatible with PC and Mac systems and come with a three-year limited warranty.

The new JumpDrive M20c USB Type-C flash drives will be available in October. Recommended retail prices are: 16GB -$31 ($NZ34); 32GB - $41 ($NZ45), and 64GB - $62 ($NZ68).

Prices for the JumpDrive M20i are: 16GB - $72 ($NZ79), 32GB - $103 ($NZ114), 64GB - $165 ($NZ182).

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
