The folks at TechConnect have obtained information about a new series of flash drives being prepped up by Buffalo.
Dubbed the SHD-LVS-BK series, these are oddly said to be advertised as USB-type SSDs, despite being limited to the now woeful USB 2.0 interface. They come in capacities ranging from 4 to 64GB, measuring 23 (W) x 10 (H) x 98 (D) mm with a weight of 17 grams.
The drives sport a physical switch that gives the ability to lock the drive so that no deletion or further writes can be made. The drives come NTFS formatted and include Buffalo's TurboPC and TurboCopy software tools that are said to enable faster transfer rates.
The drives will first become available in Japan later this month at prices ranging from $28 to $259 depending on capacity.
