Taipei, June 13, 2007

Transcend Information Inc. (Transcend) released its latest metallic USB 2.0 Flash Drive, the JetFlash™ V85. With its Zinc Alloy body, the JetFlash V85 is truly a statement of elegance that will be appreciated by those who enjoy the finer things in life. The JetFlash V85 measures only 49.5 mm long by 15.8 mm wide, and it is so thin (7.4 mm) that it easily slides into tight-fitting stacked USB ports. It conveniently plugs into the USB port on any desktop, or notebook computer, for users to easily transfer, store, and share files. Each JetFlash V85 comes with a short chain, so it can be hooked to a key ring. It is now available in 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB capacities, and is backed by a lifetime warranty for the peace of mind that users deserve.

The JetFlash V85 is engineered using top quality components to ensure better performance and a longer lifespan. In addition, the JetFlash V85 comes bundled with very useful software applications - the JetFlash™ elite software package, which focuses on the needs of the user and is specifically developed to help you manage your data and increase your productivity. The JetFlash elite includes eight functions: AutoLogin, PC-Lock, Favorites, Secret-Zip, E-mail, DataBackup, My JetFlash, and Online update. Transcend's JetFlash V85 is compatible with Windows® 98SE/2000/Me/XP and the new Windows® Vista.
