Lexar, a well known memory manufacturer, recently released a new series of USB sticks with an attractive design and blazingly fast read/write speeds. We test one of these new, high capacity USB sticks, the Ultra Lightning 4GB Lexar USB stick.
Innovative USB memory products are hitting the market faster than the transfer speeds these devices promise. We have seen waterproof and more recently hardware security USB sticks. But most of them still lack that little extra in speed!
One rather hot issue is that of security, especially when it comes to the data we all carry in our USB sticks. There are several software solutions based on encryption, but most of them have been found to be either incomplete or not very user friendly.
