The Mega features a pivoting USB connector that easily plugs into your computer's USB port on planes, trains or anywhere space is tight, without requiring an extra power supply. And with 4GB of capacity, consumers can store more than 8,000 digital photos; 1,200 songs in MP3 format; or tens of thousands of text files in this stylish, platinum-finish device. The Mega also features a blue LED indicator that flashes during data transfer. The product comes bundled with convenience accessories such as a protective, black carrying pouch and a USB cable. "The Mega TravelDrive delivers high capacity, portable USB storage in an unbelievably small form factor," said Allen H. Gharapetian, vice president of marketing and product development for Memorex. "This product offers the best cost-per-megabyte ratio compared to other portable storage solutions of this size." The added capacity of the Mega TravelDrive makes it ideal for frequent travelers, students, photographers and graphic artists who regularly create large files and share them on the go. The Mega conforms to USB 2.0 standards and is cross-platform compatible for use with both Mac and PC. Users can simply connect the Mega TravelDrive to any computer's USB port and immediately store and access files.
