<p>Verbatim, a global leader and innovator in the digital storage industry, has announced the arrival of its new SSD ExpressCards for PC and Mac users. The new cards are a solid-state drive (SSD) that provide ExpressCard slot-equipped XP/Vista PCs and OS X-equipped Macs® with plug-in storage that is up to five times faster than USB based ExpressCards. Based on the 34mm ExpressCard module (75mm x 34mm x 5mm), the Verbatim SSD ExpressCards are now available nationally with capacities of 16, 32 and 64GB. The high-performance, high-capacity storage solutions come bundled with NTI Shadow™ IV, a backup application that provides PC and Mac users with continuous real time backup of critical data.</p>
<p>With read speeds of up to 125MB/sec (833X) and write speeds up to 30MB/sec (200X), Verbatim's new SSD ExpressCards offer significantly higher performance than USB-based SSD ExpressCard solutions, due to the throughput limitations of the USB 2.0 interface.</p>
<p>In addition to providing instant access to volumes of portable storage and reliable backup/recovery, Verbatim's SSD ExpressCard solution provides advanced sync features to keep multiple storage devices and computers updated.</p>
<p>"We're excited about the launch of our new SSD ExpressCards because they offer all the advantages of a traditional SSD in a plug-and-play, integrated form factor," said Tracy Myers, Verbatim Computer Accessories, Flash &amp; Hardware Product Manager. "Since it's a plug-and-play device, there's no hardware installation. It fits completely inside your laptop's ExpressCard slot so you can easily take it with you for automated backup of your critical data, without the need to carry around or keep up with external devices. If you want to synch up your data and travel with just your SSD ExpressCard, you can leave the laptop behind. It's the best way to add storage capacity to your laptop without changing it's footprint with external devices, or going inside the case to install hardware."</p>
<p>With NTI Shadow 4, backup jobs are conveniently executed transparently in the background without disturbing the user and without slowing system performance. Files or file groups can be automatically backed up in their native format every time a change occurs. The software also offers scheduled backups, custom file type filtering, version control, drag and drop file restoring, and more. The cards include software drivers required for XP and Mac OS.</p>
