Lexar ExpressCard SSD

Lexar has rolled out a new expansion card based on the recently-announced Solid State Drive (SSD) memory technology. The Expresscard SSD will be a boon to mobile electronics users; it can be used as both a large scale memory cache and a portable storage device.

The ExpressCard's SSD-based "drive" is faster than most commercial storage devices to date, allowing read and write operations (like large photos) to be quickly retrieved, edited or saved at a much faster pace than using a traditional platter hard drive. An automatic backup program is included, to simplify using the product as a redundant storage unit. In addition, personal computers running Windows Vista can use the ExpressCard as additional RAM memory with the operating system's ReadyBoost feature. The card will be available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB sizes.
