The Lexar High Performance microSDXC UHS-I card is a class 10, 64GB card bundled with a tiny USB 3.0 stick. It’s a simple product, but its simplicity lies in the functionality that it provides. You can use this microSD card to rapidly transfer files between smartphones, PCs, notebooks, and tablets. The only real catch is the $110 asking price.
SanDisk, the flash memory company that's celebrating its 25th year in the industry this year, recently released some new Extreme microSD cards with capacities of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. We tested the 16GB version in a couple of scenarios to see just how fast it can go.
If you want to give your notebook or desktop PC a major speed boost, Crucial's m4 256GB solid state drive (SSD) is a must-have. It's one of the fastest drive's on the market and it'll not only speed up boot-up times if used as a system drive, it'll make your applications launch almost instantly.
The IronKey Personal S200 is possibly the slickest combination of software- and hardware-based security in the flash drive market. Though you log on via software, the S200 uses hardware encryption so there's no software running on your PC that can be hacked to intercept data. It's also stylishly rendered in brushed silver metal, rugged, and easy to use.
Many laptops keep a secret that doesn't get attention as much as it deserves. We're talking about the under-utilised ExpressCard slot, a multi-purpose expansion bay that has fantastic potential for expanding connectivity, storage and more.
Rambus' agreement to settle legal claims with Samsung Electronics could accelerate deals that could help new memory technology being developed by Rambus get to market faster, analysts said.

Eye-Fi is a brand of Secure Digital memory card that adds wireless connectivity to the mix so you send photos from your digital camera straight to the web for backup or display. This means you can share your photos with the wider world very easily and quickly.
Solid-state drives based on flash memory are turning up in products from seemingly every hardware vendor these days, signaling that the technology may be inching closer to mass adoption.
NAND flash memory vendors responded to the slowing economy and weak consumer confidence by phasing out production of 200mm wafer manufacturing and cutting overall flash memory production to an industry-wide average of 70% in the first quarter of this year, according to analysts.
Fusion-io Friday announced what it is calling the fastest server-based solid state drive on the market today, with double the slot capacity if its older PCI Express-based ioDrive.

Designed to look like a motorcycle, SanDisk's latest attempt to spice up the normally dull product line of USB flash drives is certainly a head turner. Finished in gloss red, silver and black metal, and even featuring a taillight that glows when the drive is in use, the Extreme Ducati Edition is definitely one of the most visually appealing USB flash drives on the market.
To the dismay of old school PCI fans, ExpressCards have successfully muscled their way into the Flash storage arena; replacing CardBus slots on nearly every current notebook on the market. In much the same way that you'll eventually have to succumb to Windows Vista, this means that it's only a matter of time before you're forced to replace your obsolete PC cards and upgrade to the new technology. It's just as well then, that the latest SSD standard offers several significant advantages over the previous incarnation, including increased bitrates, less power consumption and the ability to boost Windows Vista's performance using ReadyBoost.
PQI has jumped into the SSD ExpressCard space with a 16GB card which offers good speeds and plenty of storage capacity. Allowing for a wider appeal, it also has a mini-USB port, so those without an ExpressCard slot can still take advantage of this new technology. Although read speeds are slightly slower than simular tested units, solid write speeds and the convenience of USB make the PQI an enticing option - even if the hefty price tag may turn some people away.
