speed performance up to 5Gb/s, 10 times faster than it's USB
2.0 counterpart, USB3.0 flash drive makes data storage/transfer
much more efficient by cutting the waiting period significantly.

contents of a DVD (4.7GB) to a USB3.0 computer in just one
To enjoy the effortless, fun way of use, first "PUSH" to reveal the
connector and PRESS the side button to release it after use. The
capless design prevents the problem of losing the cap. The Push-Push mechanism was the prior patented works by a major Japanese company a few years ago, with complicated mechanical design in a bulky size and expensive manufacturing and assembly process; i-Disk Push! adopts the patented asymmetrical design with much simpler PUSH-RELEASE mechanism in red and black color highlighted on the pearl-white surface, which appears to be simple yet stylish. Compatible with USB3.0/2.0 interface, i-Disk Push! not only features the highest speed among all competitors, but also the world's slimmest outlook and the
lightest weight in its class. i-Disk Push! is one of a series of the showcase products at Pretec Computex booth to demonstrate Pretec's efforts through the perfect combination of USB3.0 technology,usability and aesthetics.
