The PNY Technologies assortment is supplemented with a 512GB Elite-X Fit USB stick equipped with a USB 3.1 port. Previously, the maximum amount of flash drives in this series was 256GB.
According to the manufacturer, the USB stick provides a read speed of up to 200 MB/s. In addition to the large volume and high speed of data transfer, the small size of 20.3 x 7.9 x 15.5 mm is also considered the advantages of the new product. Since the flash drive almost does not protrude from the connector, it can remain permanently connected to the host, in particular, without interfering with the transportation of the laptop.
To make the PNY memory stick device easier to remove from the connector, a relief texture is formed on the case, and the included transparent cover prevents pollution of the drive connector.
