Lexar
Media, Inc. Has announced its new ExpressCard SSD with auto-backup software.
Roughly half the size of current PC Card solutions, the Lexar ExpressCard SSD
is a high-capacity removable solid state drive (SSD) that delivers high-performance,
lower-cost storage expansion to notebook computers. The Lexar ExpressCard SSD
comes bundled with auto-backup software, an innovative solution for protecting
laptop computer files and data that allows for automatic regular (daily, weekly,
or monthly) backup without user intervention after the initial setup. During
this setup, the user will be able to set the folder and specific file types
to be included or excluded from the backup process. In addition, this automatic
backup software can also support multiple computers by recognizing the computer
name and the appropriate backup setting for each computer.



The Lexar ExpressCard SSD is also ideal for use with Windows Vista as it is
enhanced for use with ReadyBoost, a Vista feature that improves your system
performance without having to add DRAM to your computer. The ExpressCard SSD
serves as an additional memory cache, which is a reserve section of memory that
the computer can access faster than if it were accessing data from the hard
disk drive. Additionally, the ExpressCard SSD interface supports a direct connection
to the chipset, allowing users to enjoy all of its extensive backup and ReadyBoost
capabilities without having to unplug the card after every use; users simply
keep their ExpressCard SSD in the slot as external storage.



The Lexar ExpressCard SSD is shipping in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB capacities.
