Weâ€™ve all seen these handy little devices that plug into the USB ports on our computers and allow us to carry around a tremendous amount of data. The current size leader is the Kingston DataTravler 300, boasting a massive 256 GB of data in the palm of your hand. This is equivalent to carrying around one of the following:
- Â 365 CDâ€™s (700 MB each)
- 54 DVDâ€™s (4.7 GB each)
- 10 Blu-rayâ€™s (25 GB each)
The majority of these units are actually in the 4 GB to 8 GB range. Which is much larger than the $100 1 GB hard drive I bought 20 years ago. I wouldnâ€™t have been carrying that around in the palm of my hand because there wouldnâ€™t have been anything convenient to plug it into, to extract or share the data. Plus, one static shock or a strong magnet could wipe out all my data.
More and more we are receiving calls and inquires regarding our flash duplicators. We have flash duplicators ranging in size from 3-targets to 63-targets. The Vinpower units have many desirable features such as asynchronous copy mode and an encrypted erase function. The other day a wedding photographer asked me if this was the next wave for picture sharing. Iâ€™m not certain but now that USB ports are becoming a standard feature in cars and the fact that many of us carry these devices on our key chains, Iâ€™d have to say USBÂ might just be the next big wave of the future.
