World's Fastest Memory Stick Caught Speeding
by Linford Butler


The world’s fastest ever Memory Stick Pro-Duo has been introduced to the world by SanDisk.

The memory stick, named SanDisk Extreme III Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo, is available in 4GB and 8GB varieties and is capable of write and read speeds of up to 30Mbps.

The manufacturer claims that the stick is ideal for professional photographers and advanced amateurs who use Sony Digital SLR cameras. The stick would also be perfect for PS3 and PSP owners, as the amazing speeds are more than capable of copying game saves and videos quickly and easily.


"The SanDisk Extreme III Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo continues our tradition of delivering best-in-class performance in the SanDisk Extreme product line," claims Susan Park, SanDisk's director of consumer product marketing.

"Our customers know SanDisk Extreme cards not only deliver cutting-edge read and write speeds, but are designed for durability – even under harsh conditions."

The Extreme III cards are capable of functioning from minus 13 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit, and carry a lifetime warrantee. The cards also come with RescuePro software for retrieving lost images.

The cards will retail at £76.00 for the 8GB version ($150 for our American readers) or about £46.00 for the 4GB ($90).

The memory stick will be available worldwide sometime this month, and there is no doubt that many Sony/Nintendo console owners will be flocking to buy these in the vain hope of appearing high-tech.
