was back in 1971 when Memorex made its first steps in the consumer market, producing
high quality recording tapes. Throughout the last 40 years or so since its creation,
Memorex has offered a wide variety of storage solutions including recordable
media, both CD and DVD, flash media, mini discs, diskettes, storage devices
such as CD/DVD Recorders, memory sticks, even media cases and labels, and the
list keeps getting longer.
In this review, we will have a closer look at Memorex's latest product, the
Mega TravelDrive, a USB 2.0 flash memory with 6GB and 8GB capacity.
Memorex's award winning line of portable storage drives expands further with
our Mega TravelDrive line of mini hard drive based USB drives. Nearly 20% smaller
than existing hard drive based solutions offered by competitors, the Mega TravelDrive
truly delivers the best combination of size and capacity.
While the Mega TravelDrive is compact on the outside, it offers an expansive
storage space inside. Adding to the drive's visual appeal is the wrap-around
blue LED indicator lamp, bringing an extra touch of coolness to this attractive,
portable storage device.
