Lexar announced a number of new additions to its product lineup at CES 2010.
Lexar added a 32GB capacity to its 300x Professional series of CF cards. Additionally, 16GB and 32GB capacities have been added to the 233x CF Pro series.
Lexar’s biggest buzzing product was a new Echo drive series, which are small USB drives that can be set to back up specific files or folders. During a product demo, I saw the utility of how these drives can help photographers working in the field. These drives can be used to automate the backup portion of your workflow, which helps speed things up when you’re out in the field.
As you can see from the above shot of the Echo ZE, Lexar has managed to fit 32GB into a tiny form factor. The Lexar Echo SE drive is bigger, more like a normal-sized USB stick; however, according to Lexar, it is much faster.
