260MB/s FastKey is 100 times faster than USB 2.0

LaCie has released a new range of FasKey drives capable of impressive transfer speeds and storage capacity while still being pocketable. This should appeal to photographers with rapidly dwindling space available on both memory cards and hard drives. 

The FastKey comes in 30GB, 60GB and 120GB varieties, all of which are USB 3.0 compatible. Being a compact 27 x 104 x 9mm and weighing only 33g means it can sit in a camera bag without being a burden, and the metallic casing should protect the drive from external damage.

The drives are available now for £135, £215 and 395 for the three capacities, more information can be found at LaCie’s website.
