Silicon Power Announces Marvel M01 USB 3.0 Flash Drive

Silicon Power Company has extended its product line with their announcement of the Marvel M01 USB 3.0 flash drive. To meet the consumer needs, the M01 will be available in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB storage capacities. The dimensions are 60.6 x 18 x 8.1 mm (2.374 x 0.7087 x 0.3189 inches) with a weight of 10 grams. The main draw of this flash drive is its USB 3.0 interface, but it is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 interfaces.

The flash drive is made of durable aluminum solid casing that is also fingerprint- and scratch-proof. In addition, the M01's strap hole allows you to attach your USB drive to your favorite keychain or necklace, allowing you to have your most prized data with you at all times. The icy blue color scheme adds a nice touch to the drive, along with the built-in LED indicator light for power on and data transfer status.

Every Silicon Power flash drive product comes with a lifetime warranty and SP Widget application software, which provides 7 major back up and security tools. The consumer also receives a free 60 day trial of Norton Antivirus 2011.

    No performance benchmark? That is not very helpful.

    SP has not released the M01's performance benchmark information to the public, so we'll have to wait and see.

    x HeavyUSB 3.0 generally is around 5 gb/sec same as PCIeYes, they sport a usb 3.0 bandwidth but many are not 4 or 8 channel and only read/write at 30MBps. I am waiting for more higher end drives to come out of the market and the price to drop before getting one, so knowing the bench is important. Want something like a patriot supersonic magnum but its too expensive.

    They'll get sued by Marvel (as in http://marvel.com/) for copyright infringement. xD

    "The consumer also has to take a free 60 day trial of Norton Antivirus 2011, because we're paid to give it to you".

    It is important to note, "The main draw of this flash drive is its USB 3.0 interface, but it is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 interfaces."

    I am glad to know it has this feature, especially since all USB 3.0 devices are backward compatible to USB 2.0 and 1.1, by definition of the 3.0 specification.
