NEW DELHI, INDIA: Sony India has today expanded its Micro Vault family with three new Micro Vault USB Flash Drives – two all-new Micro Vault ‘Click’ models and the latest Micro Vault Tiny.

The Micro Vault Tiny highlights an expanded 8GB storage capacity while the Micro Vault ‘Click’ models features an innovative ‘Click’ mechanism. In addition, the Micro Vault ‘Click’ USM-LX series is a high-speed USB flash drive, designed to increase business efficiency with a read-out speed of up to 31MB/s  for quick and easy file transfer and storage.

The Micro Vault ‘Click’ models have no caps to lose and do not expose the USB connectors when not in use. The new Micro Vault ‘Click’s unique design employs a ‘Clicking’ action similar to that of a retractable pen.

When ‘Clicked’, the USB connector is extended for easy use with notebook and computers, televisions, or any electronic device that utilizes a USB port for the transfer of information . In addition, the ‘prism’ LED indicator illuminates when the Micro Vault ‘Click’ is connected to a computer and during data transfer.

Meeting consumers’ need for speed, the Micro Vault ‘Click’ uses a Hi-speed USB 2.0 platform  which has been enhanced to support Windows ReadyBoost. When the Micro Vault ‘Click’ is connected to a computer with Windows Vista installed, Windows ReadyBoost enables any specified amount of the USB flash drive’s memory to be added to the computer’s system cache.

This helps to enhance system performance and stability on the computer, and allows for switching between active programmes and applications efficiently.

The latest addition to the Micro Vault Tiny family sticks to the same design formula that made the form factor popular. Boasting a larger capacity of 8GB, the new Micro Vault Tiny is built to store important work data and precious pictures,  videos and music for easy file transfer.

Almost half the size of a regular thumb drive, it features direct connectivity to USB ports, comfortably fitting into any USB port location. The Micro Vault Tiny is also supplied with attractive, matching soft carrying cases for easy clipping on to pockets and notebooks, enhancing portability. 

Both Micro Vault ‘Click’ and Micro Vault Tiny models are enabled with Plug and Play mode allowing automatic recognition when users connect it to a USB port.

In addition, the new Micro Vault models are pre-loaded with Virtual Expander, data compression software that automatically compresses files and enables users to store up to three times the capacity of the Micro Vault . Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems, the Micro Vault ‘Click’ and Micro Vault Tiny models offer fast transfer of pictures, videos, music and data and up to 16GB storage capacity .

The brand new Micro Vault ‘Click’ models and latest Micro Vault Tiny will be available at Sony owned stores, select national retail partners, as well as select Sony authorized dealers across the country.
