Recreating a New Wave of Technology Across Five Major Product Lines

January 8, 2013 - Ringing in the New Year, 2013 will welcome the world's most watched Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to Las Vegas, USA from January 8 to 11. As a manufacturer that always earns well-deserved attention from the market, PQI has set up a spacious and stand-alone exhibition space on display at the Mirage Hotel Suite. PQI is set to unveil five of its newest product lines: PQI Storage, PQI Air, PQI Mobility, PQI Power, and PQI Audio. With the exhibition theme of "Smart - My Mobile Life", PQI will reveal its latest trend-setting products that will recreate a new wave of technology!

Alan Chang, the CEO of Global Operations, expresses: "Following the strong demand for thinner computers, combined with the rise of the MacBook Air and the Ultrabook, users are demanding lighter and thinner peripheral storage options. Alongside PQI's one-and-only, patented "COB-3.0 Connection Technology" and with "light and thin" ideals in mind, we have created an unprecedented series of ultra mini USB 3.0 storage devices, once again leading the industry and leading the world. In addition, the popularity of smart devices and the demand for personal cloud services are ever increasing. Investigational agencies expect that the amount of worldwide personal cloud users will increase to over 600 million people in 2013 and to over 1.3 billion people in 2017. Therefore, following the success of a full range of wireless mobile products from PQI Air, we yet again seek to make the impossible possible and are ready to reveal a whole new set of intelligent wireless products that are surely to distinguish us from our competitors. Wireless technology truly makes our lives much more convenient; leading the industry, we will create a wireless lifestyle with limitless potential!

2013 Highlights of our Signature Products:

PQI Storage

  1. i-lock, the world's super-mini flash drive that uses PQI's exclusive COB 3.0 patented technology is only the size of a U.S. penny. As the world's leading mini flash drive, the design is reminiscent of a silver boutique product that promises a sturdy, highly-tensile design with a sleek, one-piece zinc alloy casing. The frosted matte surface radiates high-tech aesthetics and feel; with its slimness and design, the flash drive serves as a perfect complement to the MacBook Air and the Ultrabook. With a design this thin, one can easily forget that it can have a storage capacity of up to 32GB. Equipped with high-speed USB 3.0, transfer and storage time can be greatly reduced, which allows for reduced power consumption and carbon emissions. All these features combined create a truly stunning and absolutely extraordinary product.
  2. Thunder 1, the industry's smallest bootable flash drive, comes equipped with a USB 3.0 transfer interface that supports the new Windows 8 boot feature, "Windows to Go". The Thunder 1 has not only passed stringent Microsoft certification, PQI has enhanced its specifications to allow the user to boot a Windows system from the Thunder 1 drive. Anytime, anywhere, you can easily carry a personal operating system; all you need is a computer. Its lightweight design can easily be carried, effectively reducing the time and burden upon the mobile worker. Combined with SSD hard drive controller technology that provides high-performance and low-latency, the capabilities of the Thunder 1 flash drive should not be underestimated.
  3. Thunder 4 is the world's only flash drive that surpasses the performance of an SSD. In response to the market's heavy demand for lightweight, high-speed, high-capacity storage devices, PQI introduces a storage solution with a capacity of up to 256GB. Boasting speeds faster than the speed of light, the Thunder 4 has a read speed of 360MB/sec and a write speed of 340MB/sec; all at a price much more affordable than SSD yet with the same breathtaking performance. With reservoir-like storage capacity and transfers in the blink of an eye, the Thunder 4 satisfies all of the end-consumer's needs!
