Lexar unveils its new JumpDrive high-performance USB flash drive designed to keep your data safe in tough conditions.
The JumpDrive is a lightweight and stylish USB flash drive -- not a huge rubber and aluminum behemoth like some rugged drives -- capable of sustaining impact/pressure up to 750 PSI, extremes of weather, from -13 degrees to 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and water submersion up to 98 feet.
The JumpDrive also comes equipped with EncryptStick Lite software, which Lexar bills as an advanced security solution with 256-bit AES encryption that helps to securely protect files against data corruption, loss, and accidental deletion.
This JumpDrive supports speeds up to 150MB/s read and 60MB/s write. Transferring a 3GB file takes under a minute, compared to the four minutes it takes using a standard USB 2.0 drive.
The drive is backward-compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 devices.
