Crucial enhances storage options with pocket-sized gizmo! Drive
Sleek, speedy, USB flash drive showcases leading memory provider’s expertise
Glasgow, UK, 28 May 2003 - Crucial Technology Europe, one of Europe's largest direct memory upgrade providers, today introduced the Crucial® Gizmo!(TM) USB flash drive, a miniature, portable flash storage drive that plugs into a computer’s Universal Serial Bus (USB) port. This high-density alternative to the traditional floppy disk stores digital documents, music, and photographs and conveniently transfers data from one USB-enabled computer to another. About the size and weight of a packet of chewing gum, the Gizmo! drive slips easily into a pocket, purse, or briefcase.
"Computer users today work with larger files, more programs, and on more than one system; the floppy disk just doesn't meet those needs any longer," said Crucial Europe General Manager, Stefanie Summerfield. "The Crucial Gizmo! drive is the future of mobile data. It allows for the rapid transfer of large files between any USB-enabled system. And the sturdy design of the
Gizmo! drive ensures simple, worry-free portability for those on the go."
The Gizmo! drive is a full-speed device, compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports. A true Plug and Play solution, the Gizmo! drive automatically appears as a removable drive when plugged in to the USB port of a desktop or notebook. Required Windows® 98 and Special Edition drivers are available for download on Crucial’s Web sites at www.crucial.com/uk or www.crucial.com/eu.
The Crucial Gizmo! drive is available on Crucial’s Web site in three densities: 64MB, 128MB, and 256MB. Pricing currently ranges from 22.99GBP to 57.99GBP or 33.99 euros to 84.99 euros. Each drive comes with a USB extension cable (91 centimetres), wrist lanyard (strap), multilingual user guide, limited lifetime warranty, free shipping within the UK, and Crucial’s renowned customer service and technical support.
