OCZ unveiled 8GB, 16GB and 32GB Slate Series ExpressCards for notebooks, offering mobile users an easy way to upgrade their storage capacity. The specifications list a read speed of up to 18MB/s and write speed of up to 12.5MB/s, unfortunately that's quite a bit slower than what fast USB drives or external HDDs have to offer.
The integration of express card storage is ideal for mobile users who want the peace of mind knowing they will always have a backup option and experience the convenience of an internal solution that eliminates peripheral devices.
The Slate Series ExpressCard is ideal for the on-the-go notebook user that needs a backup storage method but does not want to carry a USB drive or external hard drive. The Slate series is an excellent solution for backing up your music, photos, and documents, and its low power consumption won’t deplete the life of your notebook’s battery when you’re on the go.
The Slate Series line comes in ample storage capacities of 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB, and is fully compatible with all ExpressCard standards. The integration of a mini-USB port allows the Slate Series to be connected externally from a hub when transferring data between your primary desktop and mobile system. The Slate Series comes backed by a 2-year warranty and OCZ’s industry leading technical support for the ultimate peace of mind.
