Kanguru debuts e-Flash - one of the first flash drives with both eSATA and USB connectivity. The USB connector ensures broad compatibility, while the eSATA plug enables faster transfer speeds on systems that support it. The Kanguru e-Flash will debut in January 2009, it will be available in 16/32/64GB capacities.
Utilizing eSATA (External Serial ATA) technology allows the Kanguru e-Flash to achieve performance speeds never before obtainable with standard USB Flash Drives. This performance, coupled with large storage capacities means the Kanguru e-Flash can handle any application or data file, regardless of size. In addition to eSATA, it also contains a USB2.0 connection for universal connectivity to virtually any computer.
The Kanguru e-Flash has a powered eSATA connection so it doesn’t require any additional power source. It also comes packaged with an eSATA + Power bracket and an eSATA + Power cable for easy hookup to the computer you use it on most. Capacities are available in 16GB or 32GB with 64GB planned for January 2009.
“We’ve combined the fastest connectivity with the most universal connection for the best of both worlds,” said Nate Cote, VP of Product Management at Kanguru Solutions. “The ultra-fast transfer speed, high capacity and small size combine to make it a great portable solution for users that want the next generation of unbelievable performance.”
The Kanguru e-Flash comes preloaded with Hotswap!™ software for easy and safe eSATA connection and ejection. The drive also has a high-strength aluminum housing that can be custom engraved for customer wanting to personalize or brand their drives.
