Lacie preps 260MB/s USB flash drive

/ 6 years ago

With 2011 lining itself up to be the year of the tablet, new innovations in SSD technology are especially welcome.

This USB key from Lacie is no exception; delivering blistering 260MB/s performance, this drive easily leaves a lot of this year’s Sata SSDs in the dust.

Available in 30, 60 and 120GB varieties, at $150, $250 and $475 respectively, the drives offer an attractive alternative to internal SSDs for operating systems, as well as a possible simple upgrade for limited space form-factor cases, such as HTPCs, or even as a fast upgrade to an old laptop.

Hopefully we will have the opportunity to review one of these ourselves in the new year.
