Patriot (www.patriotmem.com) has added 128GB capacities to several of their lifestyle USB flash drives. Consistent with the latest USB specifications, the new 128GB capacities will be USB 3.1 Gen 1, backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 and reach up to 110MB/s and 20MB/s read and write speeds.
“With the growing need for more storage, Patriot is excited to expand the storage capacities of our most popular lifestyle lines,” said Meng J. Choo, Patriot’s Flash product manager. “These new capacities make it possible to carry even the largest HD videos in your pocket, or easily expand the storage on your current device or platform.”
One of Patriot’s top selling USB drives, the Tab’s metal finish makes it virtually undetectable while plugged into any laptop or PC. The Vex is designed for the consumer looking for a pop of color, but minimalist design. The 128GB Vex will be available in a bright green with the signature black plastic top for a better grip while inserting and removing the drive.
The Spark’s metal uni-body design helps it to “disappear” into any device. The Supersonic mini is built to withstand a beating and comes in a sleek opaque black finish.
The Tab, Spark Vex and s•mini will be available for purchase worldwide at online and in store locations such as Fry’s Electronics, Amazon and Newegg on Dec. 14 at a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$49.95.
