Even though the market is bubbling with a myriad of USB flash drives of all kinds, the desire for newer, better and more aesthetically-pleasing products is just as strong as ever, prompting Mach Xtreme to come out and launch its latest solution, one going by the name of MX-CX.The past few months definitely saw their share of electronics that can be classified as less than ordinary, so Mach Xtreme decided it would stay closer to the norms this once.
As such, it made a flash drive that will do what it is supposed to do without having any features with questionable usefulness.
While this implies that there is absolutely no encryption and, thus, security, it also means that the ultimate price will be far lower than what it would otherwise have been.
All in all, these products are aimed at the masses that need just something to carry around whatever data they need, especially when traveling frequently.
Thus, the company did not bother with encryption protocols or any pre-loaded software tools, leaving it to the consumers to decide just what to do with their purchase.
The MC-CX is made out of MLC (multi-level cell) NAND Flash memory chips and comes in four capacities, namely 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB.
All of the aforementioned models are Hot Plug & Play-ready, measure 69 (L) x 17 (W) x 8 (H) mm and weigh 39 grams, making them more than easy to carry around.
What's more, the newcomers share the same performance rating, being capable of reading information at 15 MB/s and writing it at 8 MB/s.
The Mach Xtreme MX-CX USB 2.0 flash drives of 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB will sell for $9, $20, $30 and $64, respectively. Shipments are reportedly set to begin at the beginning of next month.
