Longsys Acquires Lexar Brand from Micron

After memory giant Micron announced the discontinuation and potential sale of the Lexar brand back in June of this year, little additional information was provided as to the ultimate fate of Lexar. While there was some speculation that Seagate may pick up the brand to bolster its flash memory business, instead China based Longsys recently announced that had acquired the Lexar trademark and brand. Details of the acquisition were not provided at this time.

“We are very honored to acquire the Lexar brand,” said Huabo Cai, CEO of Longsys Electronics Limited. “Lexar has built a great brand name and our vision is to make it even greater. Existing customers can rest [...]

System for the Content Creation Professional

If you’re like us, you’re probably always on the lookout for a good workflow system to get images from either your camera or videocamera into the computer. With all the different devices out there demanding different types of memory cards, you’re bound to end up having several different memory cards with several different memory card readers hooked up to several different USB ports. Unfortunately, this is a hassle especially when on the road as most laptops can only spare at one to two USB ports at most.

To solve this problem, Lexar introduced the Lexar Professional Workflow lineup of products which will make [...]

Best MicroSD Card Review: 12 MicroSD Card Comparison

12 MicroSD (MicroSDHC/MicroSDXC) Cards Tested

Back in late 2012, we rounded up a total of thirteen memory cards from a number of memory card vendors and put them to the test in both synthetic and real world applications. At the time, we tested both SD and CF cards from various vendors to find out which of the cards performed the best, which of the cards provided best value, and at which point do returns begin to diminish in the real world. Ever since we published that article, many of you have asked us for an update which is already in the works pending a couple more samples from various memory card vendors.

Now one type of memory card we’ve never addressed is the [...]

SanDisk Unveils Massive 512GB Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC Memory Card

According to a recent press release, SanDisk is announcing the world’s first 512GB SDHC/SDXC UHS-I memory card, the SanDisk Extreme PRO, designed for professionals shooting 4K video, HD video, and high speed photography. Previously, the largest capacity SDXC memory cards on the market were 256GB and were only offered by a few companies such as SanDisk, Lexar and PNY. As far as I know, currently the largest NAND dies on the market is 128Gb, which means SanDisk has managed to cram a staggering 32 dies into the Extreme PRO to reach a 512GB capacity. This is likely why SanDisk is currently the only company on the market to reach this capacity.

Given that 4K video [...]

Best Memory Card Roundup: 13 Memory Cards Tested

13 Flash Memory Cards Tested

A couple weeks ago, I was talking with a couple colleagues about DSLR cameras, and invariably the topic about high speed SD and CF memory cards came up. What we wanted to know is if a high speed memory card such as the Lexar Professional 1000x CF (Compact Flash) card will actually perform better than a SanDisk Extreme 400x CF card under typical real world conditions. When looking at the price difference between the two cards, the SanDisk Extreme 400X 32GB CF card runs for about $88 while the Lexar Professional 1000x 32GB CF card runs for about $135, that’s a difference of nearly $47!

Since testing only two memory cards seems almost [...]

Best USB Flash Drive: Six USB 3.0 Flash Drives Compared

Battle of the Best

With the introduction of the Panther Point chipset along with Ivy Bridge CPUs, USB 3.0 has become more mainstream than ever before, which means those purchasing a new system nowadays can take full advantage of the additional bandwidth offered by USB 3.0. For those unfamiliar with the benefits of the USB 3.0 specification, USB 3.0 is theoretically capable of hitting up to 5.0 Gb/s, which is over 10x faster than the USB 2.0 specification of 480 Mb/s. To put this in perspective, the SATA 3 specification has a maximum theoretical bandwidth of 6 Gb/s, so in theory a USB 3.0 flash drive is capable of achieving “SSD-like” transfer rates.
