Transcend rolls out new 8GB USB drive

Posted by Humphrey Cheung

Remember when USB memory sticks only had a mere 256 MB of storage? Those days are long gone and Transcend Information has just announced its new JetFlash V10 USB 2.0 drive with 8 GB of storage. The drive includes some encryption software and integrates a sliding USB connector which protects stick when not in use.

The stick weighs 11 grams and is 64 by 21 by 10 mm. Special "JetFlash elite" software is included that encrypts Zip files and locks the computer using the USB keychain. You can see the software in action in a video we shot at the Computex convention in Taiwan.
