Lexar bigs it up - Lexar have announced the launch of high capacity SD cards for the year ahead, starting with a 4Gb model.
Lexar, a leader in advanced digital media and accessories, announced today that new Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) flash memory cards will be available as part of the company’s Premium and Standard lines of products. Lexar SDHC cards satisfy market demand for reliable SDHC cards that are ideal for storing and sharing digital images, video, and music and are offered at varying price and performance levels. SDHC cards from both Lexar product lines will be available next month in 4GB capacity, and later this year in 8GB capacity.
“As digital camera resolution continues to increase and capturing video becomes an even greater consumer habit, SDHC cards provide much needed capacity and performance to ensure a superior user experience,” said Michael Yang, director of product marketing, Lexar. “We’re excited about extending two of our popular product lines to include SDHC-format flash cards and we look forward to improving the digital experience of many who have – or will have – SDHC-enabled devices. Within these two product lines, an ideal SDHC flash card now exists for consumers needing varying price and performance specifications.”
Lexar Premium SDHC cards will be available next month in 4GB capacity and speed-rated at 60X, capable of a minimum sustained write speed of 9MB per second. By SDHC specifications, the cards are SDHC Class 6 – providing a minimum sustained write speed of greater than 6MB per second. Lexar Premium SDHC memory cards include the standard edition of Corel Photo Album 6 and a limited lifetime warranty.
Standard Lexar SDHC cards will also be available next month in 4GB capacity. By SDHC specifications, the cards are SDHC Class 2 – providing a minimum sustained write speed of greater than 2MB per second. Standard Lexar SDHC cards include the starter edition of Corel Photo Album 6 and a 5-year limited warranty.
Lexar Premium 4GB SDHC cards and Standard Lexar 4GB SDHC cards will be available in February with suggested street prices of £99.99 and £79.99 inc VAT, respectively.
