USB flash drives have come a long way. When they first hit the scene, it seemed as though only tech savvy types were carrying them; graphic designers, software developers and such. They unknowingly would replace the blank CD as we knew it and eventually would become the standard for portable data.
Now, flash drives or USB storage units can be found on many people’s keychains or in their purses, book bags, suitcases or pants pockets. With their ubiquity, likewise companies such as Leef have been stepping these handy little gadgets up to new levels on a regular basis. And announced on Tuesday, they’ve introduced two new items to their already impressive line of USB 3.0 drives.
The Leef Ice 3.0 is an updated version of their previous Ice USB drive, but featuring increased speed performance, boasting speeds of 90-megabites per second on transfers. Constructed with anodized aluminum enclosing a special methacrylic resin, the Ice has a crystal-like appearance and looks pretty sweet when its soft-glow LED light glows inside during data transfers.
The Leef Supra is the sleekest, teeniest flash drive I’ve ever seen. An excellent perk of using Supra with a laptop is never having to take it out of a USB port. Even while in a carrying case or laptop sleeve, it can stay in without worried of getting messed up. It’s simple but a wonderful feature.
Both models are currently available in 16GB and 32GB sizes, with 64GB versions in the works. The Leef Ice 3.0 will come in charcoal and the Leef Supra will come in metallic silver and charcoal black. Be sure to see the entire Leef USB 3.0 product line at their website, Leef.
