2005-04-20 - Fremont, CA, USA: Digital media and accessories company Lexar Media, Inc. (Nasdaq: LEXR), recently introduced JumpDrive(R) Lightning, the latest addition to its vast line of USB flash drives. Portable devices are normally very functional in design, but Lexar Media have taken a different approach with JumpDrive. JumpDrive Lightning is a portable storage device that features a striking stainless steel design. Coinciding with its introduction, all customers ordering JumpDrive Lightning from www.lexar.com will be offered free engraving.
Said Bobby Billman, vice president of marketing, Lexar: "JumpDrive Lightning is our new flagship USB product, and it reflects our commitment to offering uniquely designed products geared toward every consumer's design sensibility. JumpDrive Lightning's leading-edge performance capabilities are matched only by its sophisticated design, and our new engraving service adds a fun and useful personal touch."
Lexar's JumpDrive Lightning brings a new 21st century twist to the age-old practice of personalized engraving. JumpDrive Lightning features a highly polished stainless steel case with a special area reserved for a permanent message, suitable for gift sentiments, monogrammed initials or other personalized touches. Customers who order the device from Lexar's website will be able to receive a personalized laser engraving of up to 20 characters for no additional charge.
Lexar's JumpDrive Lightning haswrite-speed capability of up to 120x (18MB/sec) and read-speed capability of up to 160x (24 MB/sec) and massive (up to 2GB) storage capacities, which make it ideal for business professionals and anyone requiring extra high performance to transfer, save and carry digital pictures, music, presentations or other large files.

JumpDrive Lightning offers both password-protected and public storage areas on the drive. The public area is accessible by anyone using the drive, while the private area is password-protected and encrypted with 256-bit AES.
