Like I knew it was small judging by the press photos when it was announced back at CES, but I had no idea it was this small. You need to see this thing to scale to really appreciate it and so I snapped a few pictures with random items around my desk. Click through for the photo gallery. You have to see… Read More

  • Secure your data with encrypted USB drives

    USB media represents a double-edged sword: on the one hand, data portability is an extremely useful thing; but on the other hand, data portability can be a gigantic liability for your business operations. You can try to train your users not to put sensitive data on USB drives, but chances are that convenience will win out over security, and your data will slip out on USB media anyway. And… Read More

  • Lexar unveils DDR3 memory with, get this, LEDs!

    Computer components bedazzled with LEDs seem to indicate speed in the same way that stickers on the back of rice-burners do. So with that fact in mind, the Lexar Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 memories with LEDs highlighting the memories activities must be super fast. I kid, I kid as the PC3-10600 DDR3-1333MHz memory shouldn’t be sluggish by any means. The modules will be available in… Read More

  • Lexar partnering with Eye-Fi on Shoot-N-Sync Wi-Fi memory card

    Today, Lexar Media announced an Eye-Fi connected 2GB SD card dubbed Shoot-N-Sync. If you recall, Lexar and Eye-Fi released a statement way back in January at CES that something was in the works.

  • Review: Lexar Professional UDMA 8GB CF card, Professional UDMA FireWire 800 CF card reader, Professional SDHC 4GB card

    How does one review a memory card without getting super technical and uber nerdy? Test it against every other memory card in your camera bag! That’s how. I’ve had the great pleasure of having the aforementioned memory cards from Lexar in my arsenal for the better part of two months.

    Companies that feature “prosumer” products usually have a good rep. and their products are usually worth the extra cash.
