The company’s also taken the wraps off its Slim 3.0 USB drive, which is said to be up to ten-times faster than the previous model. There’s no official word on pricing yet for either of the drives, but you can expect to be faced with a thin wallet when they hit shelves at some point this year. Hit up the press release after the break for more details.
Victorinox SSD official:1TB of high-speed storage in a Swiss Army Knife
Shocker! Victorinox has officially pulled the wraps off of its latest pocket-knife and thumb drive combo here at CES — you know, the one we spied just yesterday during the show-floor setup. Simply titled, SSD, the “pocket-sized drive” is apparently the only one in the world that connects to eSATA II / III and USB 2.0 / 3.0 with a single connector, and it’s also being touted as the smallest one around. Furthermore, SSD features a 96 x 48 Bi-Stable monochrome graphic display for keeping track of what’s stored inside of it, and Victorinox states that you won’t find this on any other drive currently available. Impressively, you can expect up to 220 MB/s read and 150 MB/s write speeds, and you’ll be able to encrypt all of your info with hardware- and software-based 256-bit AES — not bad for something that fits on a key-loop, and packs a blade, scissors and a nail file! The SSD comes with a secondary flight-case sans utensils so you can get past security, and it’ll be available in 64, 128 and 256GB flavors, not to mention a massive 1TB version.
