PRESS RELEASE: Transcend Releases the latest Advancement in SD Memory Card Technology, the SuperFast 150X SD Memory Card
The growing popularity of high-resolution digital cameras and multimedia devices has increased the demand for faster and better performing Flash Memory Cards. Transcend Information Inc., a world leader in flash memory devices, continues its role as an innovative developer with the release of its 150X Ultra-Performance High-speed Secure Digital (SD™) Cards (up to 2GB), the highest performing SD™ Memory Cards in the world.
Transcend's 150X SD™ Memory Cards are small in size, which makes them easy to carry around. They are also extremely convenient because of the card's compatibility with most modern-day personal electronics incorporating an SD™ card slot. Extremely fast data transfer speeds of up to 22.5 MB/sec, give the new 150X SD™ Card 70% better performance over normal SD™ Memory Cards. By comprehensively testing our SD™ card's compatibility and durability, Transcend ensures you can now save, transfer and use your pictures, MP3s, or MPEG 4 video clips on your digital audio player, digital camera, cell phone, or PDA with the utmost confidence and speed.
Having focused on the Research and Development of Flash Memory Cards for many years, Transcend insists on only using original SLC (Single-Level-Cell) NAND Flash chips in its 150X SD™ Cards. SD™ Cards that use SLC technology have higher write speeds, lower power consumption, and superior durability compared with SD™ Cards made with MLC (Multi-Level-Cell) chips. Transcend's SD™ Card series is fully compatible with your digital camera and other handheld devices giving you a hassle-free data storage and transfer experience.
- Low power consumption which maximizes battery life in small portable devices
- Mechanical Write-Protection Switch
- Adoption of original SLC NAND Flash chips
