Taipei, Taiwan, May 27, 2002/Various Agencies—Along with the explosion in the use of digital cameras, PDAs, and MP3 players has come a proliferation in the number of vendors offering the Flash memory products these devices require. Regrettably, not all of the products offered by some of these vendors are dependable. Quality and performance may vary drastically. Fortunately, consumers can place their trust in Flash products manufactured by Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend).

The Flash storage product used by a majority of the most popular mobile devices is CompactFlash. Due to its high market share, many vendors now offer CompactFlash Cards, but some of the CompactFlash Cards being sold have poor data transfer rates and inferior reliability. Transcend has addressed this issue by developing CompactFlash Cards from top quality original flash chips with ultra-high data transfer rates. This product is recognizable by Transcend’s “Ultra Performance 25X” label.

The Transcend Ultra Performance 25X CompactFlash Card is constructed with NAND type nonvolatile Flash RAM and a high performance controller. This allows the Ultra Performance 25X CompactFlash Card to achieve a data transfer rate of up to 25X (1X = 150K byte/sec) on average. Transcend’s policy of full product testing, extensive compatibility evaluations, and a 5-year warranty mean customers can be assured of a satisfactory experience when using Transcend Ultra Performance 25X CompactFlash Cards in their mobile digital devices.
