Toshiba launches 512MB flash card

The removable storage card, which is aimed at the reseller market, complements Toshiba's existing line-up of storage devices, which include the 128MB SmartMedia card. The new CompactFlash card uses Toshiba's 0.16 micron technology, which the company has been using since the fourth quarter of 2000, Toshiba said in a statement.

The new card can be used in devices including digital still and video cameras, audio players, PDAs (personal digital assistants) and other devices that currently use CompactFlash cards.

As the popularity of devices such as MP3 players and digital video cameras increases, users want more space to store music, photos and other data, and CompactFlash cards have attracted attention because of their small size.

The 512MB card has a write speed of up to 3.2MBs per second, and a read speed of up to 5.4MBs per second, the company said in a statement.

The CompactFlash card is currently available to resellers, who will use the cards in their own branded devices, for prices starting at $US499 each in manufacturer quantities.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
