By Roman Loyola
Lexar’s new Crucial RealSSD C300 is a solid-state drive (SSD) in a 2.5-inch form factor. Lexar says that it has benchmarked the C300 and gauged read speeds at 355MB per second. The C300 will be available in 128GB and 256GB capacities, and comes with a limited five-year warranty. The C300 will be available in February. Pricing has yet to be determined.
Lexar has two new USB flash drives, the Echo SE and the Echo ZE. Both drives come with Lexar’s Echo backup software, which performs targeted file backups and supports AES 128-bit encryption; Lexar says the software works on both Macs and Windows.
