A portable USB flash drive is one of those tools that is nearly essential to be able to carry your documents and files with you.

Cameras are rapidly increasing in the number of Megapixels these days. In fact, we have just started seeing compact consumer cameras capable of taking pictures of up to 10 Megapixels!

And with larger pictures, that's definitely going to mean larger file sizes. The moment you press that snapshot button, the camera needs to store that large 10 Megabyte file (just an example) as quickly as possible into its memory. This example leads us into the product we will be taking a look at: the Kingston 133X Compact Flash (CF) memory card.
