Setting astonishing new standards for storage capacity in USB memory, TrekStor GmbH, Germany's largest maker of USB storage products, has introduced a USB stick with up to eight gigabytes of storage. Measuring about twice the width of current USB sticks, though thinner and shorter, the new TrekStor Model CS-D stick is available and shipping in six and eight gigabyte models.
The TrekStor CS-D USB stick features an aluminum casing and connector cover with a brushed metal finish. Power is supplied through the USB connection; a red LED is illuminated when the stick is in use. A neck strap and USB extension cable are included. The CS-D can be plugged directly into a USB port or be connected to a USB port using the supplied cable.
Rather than using flash memory, the CS-D employs a miniature one-inch hard drive that is shock-mounted using an original, proprietary design. The CS-D is intended for same daily use as flash-technology memory products. Available now at Amazon.com, J&R Music World, and RCS Experience, the CS-D comes in capacities of 6GB and 8GB. The MSRP is $139.99 and $179.99 respectively, and each is backed by a one-year warranty.
