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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
