New Flash drives with capacities of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB ideal for students

Düsseldorf, 8th June 2016 – Toshiba Electronics Europe has launched a new range of entry-level USB 3.0[1] flash memory USB drives intended to address the growing need from students and other users to transfer and backup data easily, reliably and cost-effectively. 

Launched under the established TransMemoryTM brand, the new stylish U303 ‘it’s mini!’ range of drives transfer content twice as fast as USB 2.0 alternatives [2] and are available with capacities of 16GB [3], 32GB and 64GB. All drives are supplied in white and are fully backward compatible with Hi Speed USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 standards. 

The TransMemory drives have been optimised for use with all modern operating systems on a Mac or desktop PC, notebook and tablet. They are ideal for storing or transferring homework, presentations, music and video content as well as for high-speed data transfer between digital products or as a convenient and portable backup media. All are available with Toshiba’s 5-year warranty giving added reassurance. 

“In order to meet the needs of consumers looking for faster transfer rates and higher capacities, Toshiba will continue to promote innovations that widen the horizons of the NAND flash market - including the introduction of new USB flash drives and memory cards.” says  Sandrine Aubert, Product Marketing Manager Toshiba Electronics Europe.

Shipment of the new TransMemory U303 USB drives will start at the end of June.
