Samsung reveals three future forward designed USB flash drives

samsung-usb-threeWhen it comes to toting around our personal data, the USB flash drive happens to be one of the “weapons” of choice, so to speak. After all, these are tiny – extremely tiny, and technology has advanced to a point where it is possible to cram in a whole lot of data onto a device that is no larger than that of your thumbnail. Having said that, Samsung Electronics flex their industrial muscles once again by offering a new suite of slim and sophisticated USB Flash Drives that will arrive in not one or two, but three ergonomic form factors, and each one of them will come equipped with robust Samsung NAND flash technology.

It does not matter which particular model that you decide to fall back on – all of them will be USB 3.0 drives which will also play nice with the USB 2.0 standard, and they will all arrive in a metal-based design equipped with Samsung’s robust NAND flash and accompanied by Samsung’s 5-proof technologies and a 5 year warranty commencing on the date of purchase, now how about that for added peace of mind for those who want to be extra careful at all times with their purchases?

The trio of different form factors will be the bar type in addition to the FIT and DUO types. The bar type delivers a modern classy look with a light champagne colored, high-quality metal casing for added durability, and a streamlined spherical end for ergonomic experiences, so that users can easily insert and extract the drive from devices, while having it double up as a subtle key ring in order to help prevent loss. It will target use in PC devices and will arrive in three capacities, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.

As for the Samsung USB 3.0 flash drive FIT, this happens to be the most compact of all of Samsung’s new UFD lineups, targeting action in ultra-slim notebooks or in automobiles that have been equipped with USB ports for data or music storage. Measuring under 20mm in length and tipping the scales at slightly more than 2 grams, one can choose from 32GB and 64GB capacities.

Last but not least, the Samsung USB 3.0 flash drive DUO will target smartphone, tablet and PC users who are always on the move and require the added flexibility of an all-in-one solution for standard and micro USB ports. The drive will come in 32GB and 64GB capacities and is less than 37mm long and weighs less than 6 grams.
