Peripheral Enhancements Corporation, a leading manufacturer of computer memory, digital media products and USB storage devices, announced today the launch of an MP3 player with a built-in USB flash drive. The new product is the latest addition to the company’s fast-growing DiskGO!(TM) consumer product line.
The DiskGO!(TM) MP3 Player plus USB Flash Drive is now available for sale at any of the company’s reseller and distribution partners and is available in 128MB and 256MB capacities. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $79.95 after rebate for the 128MB version, and $129.95 after rebate for the 256MB version. The DiskGO!(TM) MP3 Player plus USB Flash Drive ships with earbud headphones and a rechargeable lithium ion battery.
The device allows users to easily store and listen to their favorite MP3s while also serving as a USB flash drive for quick and easy storage and transfer of files. Unlike many MP3 players currently on the market, the new DiskGO!(TM) device allows for easy MP3 file transfer via drag-and-drop functionality, rather than requiring that proprietary transfer software be installed on the user’s computer. The device’s lithium ion battery conveniently charges itself each time it is plugged into the computer’s USB port and provides up to eight hours of MP3 playback time
“The MP3 player was a natural addition to our consumer line. The demand for the DiskGO!(TM) USB Flash Drive as a stand-alone device demonstrated to us that added functionality to such a device would be a real benefit to the consumer. MP3 player popularity and usage continues to increase, so with this latest DiskGO!(TM) product, consumers truly get the best of both worlds—MP3 listening capability, as well as portable storage functionality,” stated Kandi Sigona, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Peripheral Enhancements.
The DiskGO!(TM) MP3 Player plus USB Flash Drive is now available at PCMall.com, ECost.com, PCConnection.com, CDW.com, Insight.com, and Zones.com. Available through distribution at Tech Data and Ingram Micro.
