Transcend announces 16GB solid state drive in Express Card format

Connectivity options for solid state drives (SSD) continue to grow. For example, we have seen SATA and USB SSDs among others. Now you can add Express Card to the list thanks to Transcend’s new 16GB SSD. Express Card is an evolution of the PCMCIA CardBus PC slot technology.

Transcend’s ExpressCard/34 SSD is a smaller and faster plug-in module solution that supports USB 2.0 and PCI Express Applications, and perfectly matches mobile and desktop systems. The ExpressCard/34 SSD is compatible with Windows Vista and supports ReadyBoost function. Moreover, Transcend’s ExpressCard/34 SSD comes bundled with a portable USB adapter, which makes it work as a regular USB flash drive. It will be available in Europe for about 1000€.

Transcend also offers Express Card SSDs with capacities of 2,4 and 8GB, presumably for less.
