Vinpower’s method of adding write protection to its USB drives prevents Viruses or Malware from spreading
It’s a common occurrence nowadays when someone has contracted a virus on their computer or it was infected by malware, perhaps you’ve even personally been affected. These infestations can range from the mundane to totally catastrophic. Most often these harmful programs infect our computers through phishing emails or clicking on the wrong websites. People can often protect themselves by being aware and diligent as to what links they click on or through antivirus software. Though there is another threat that many people don’t pay close attention to, the potential risk of sharing USB flash drives. If someone using a USB flash drive has viruses or malware on their computer, they can inadvertently transfer those pests from their computer to that USB flash drive. Those viruses will lay dormant where they will wait to pounce on an unsuspecting victim who also plugs what they think to be an innocuous USB flash drive into their computer. Similar to sharing a hat with a person who has head lice, as the lice crawls from the hat of the afflicted person onto the unsuspecting victim who puts the hat on, the computer viruses will transfer onto the unsuspecting computer, infecting it and any other computers that USB drive is plugged in and opened.
The iXflash supports the FLAC audio format through its iPhone / iPad APP, even though Apple and iTunes do not
If you are an audiophile that only wants to listen to the best audio quality digital music files, then you are probably already familiar with the FLAC format. If you are not familiar, here’s a short explanation. According to the official website, “FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. This is similar to how Zip works, except with FLAC you will get much better compression because it is designed specifically for audio,…”
Vinpower’s iXflash can now directly record live video content through your iPhone/iPad without using any memory from your iPhone/iPad
Imagine a scenario where you want to film an event, maybe your child’s 1st recital or youth sports league, and you realize you have very little memory left on your iPhone or iPad with which to record with. You don’t want to have to frantically delete content on your iPhone/iPad to free up space, possibly deleting something you didn’t intend to or hope that someone else in the audience will record the event and share it with you. You want to be able to record exactly what you want for as long as you want.
Vinpower is now offering our single DVD or BD external USB3.0 PC connected drive with copy protection and burning encryption software.
Vinpower has offered DVD and Blu-ray video content copy protections for a number of years now through our range of manual towers and autoloaders. For the 1st time, we are offering a one off single source external DVD or BD/DVD writer drive connected to a computer by USB3.0 with the ability to perform the same DVD or Blu-ray copy protection. You no longer have to purchase a full tower when you just need a single drive to make a few copies or to add copy protection to a few burned discs.
Imagine this scenario, you load pictures, videos, or work documents onto a flash drive that you hand to a friend, co-worker, etc. in order to copy those files. Then picture this, that person accidentally deletes those files or even worse reformats the flash drive, losing all the content stored on the drive. Maybe you have a back-up somewhere else, so you’re not too worried. Chances are, you don’t have another back-up and you just lost all the data you had stored on that drive, all because the person you loaned it to in order to make a simple copy, could have pressed the wrong buttons.
Vinpower’s H2+ testing on our USB flash drives guarantees them to be free of potential malware and viruses!
Cyber security is one of the biggest concerns for all forms of business (big and small), education, government, etc. We constantly hear about new threats of malware and computer viruses to be on the lookout from. Typically, these breeches come from an unsuspecting person opening a contaminated email that releases the malware or virus onto the networks and wreaks havoc by either disrupting access or stealing content.
USB flash media are gaining in popularity and usage amongst all those looking for faster and more reliable methods to save and share digital content. The problem is that as demand increases, the stability and reliability of the supply decreases. This imbalance is creating opportunity for those to take advantage by passing off defective, mislabeled, and low-grade USB to a marketplace looking for cheaper solutions. That’s why the Piodata line of USB flash offers the security and quality you should expect at a price that is in line with today’s standard pricing.
Vinpower continues to make improvements and update the App for the iXflash Apple iPhone and iPad Lightning flash drive
If you’ve already purchased the iXflash Lightning flash drive for your iPhone and/or iPad, we trust you have been very happy with the functionality and ease of use. However, Vinpower is never satisfied with the status quo and we are constantly challenging ourselves to make improvements and find ways to enhance the functionality of the iXflash APP. It is for that reason that we encourage our users to check for our updates on the Apple App store every 2 weeks or so to see if there is an update and to benefit from any improvements added at that time.
The iXflash can double as your traveling media library, storing tons of music, movies, work files and more for instant access anywhere.
Even though the storage capacity for iPhones and iPads are increasing, because of 4K UHD resolution, the size of the photos, videos, movies, etc. that you store on your phone are also increasing significantly. So, no matter what size iPhone or iPad you get, it’s easy to run out of space quickly.
The iXflash, which allows you to back up and add storage capacity for your Apple iPhone and iPad, is now available!
Have you ever gotten a gift for someone and you knew it is something they would love and could really use? Do you remember how difficult it was to hold onto it and wait to give it to them on the actual date the present was intended for? That’s how I’ve felt the last year or so as we’ve perfected our latest offering with the iXflash, Apple Lighting Flash drive. We completely redesigned and improved upon both the actual drive and the App used with the drive to make it the most ideal companion for anyone that has an Apple iPhone or iPad, regardless of the storage capacity.
Now that fewer personal computers come standard with optical disc drives (ODD), there are fewer and fewer manufacturers producing them. The ODD manufacturers that remain are putting less resources into maintaining the drives and are actively trying to cost down on the components used to build those drives. These factors inevitably lead to lower quality drives with a shorter life span. That’s why Vinpower has worked diligently over the years to provide our own lines of professional series Half Height Optical Disc Drives, featuring the Plextor, Optiarc, and Piodata series. Each of these drives were developed to have greater compatibility, reliability, and longevity, compared to the standard off the shelf ODD''''''''s currently on the market. These drives are perfect for building your own duplicators, replacing drives on older systems, such as manual towers, autoloaders, and publishing systems, regardless of the manufacturer, and for use with computers and high scale servers.
When it comes to quality, Vinpower personally tests every flash drive through our own proprietary flash verification hardware. These systems will ensure the quality and reliability of each flash drive, which gives the customer confidence that if they purchase 100, 1000, 10,000, … flash drives, they will work and the content will not be compromised. Vinpower would never offer a flash drive which is marked as a certain size, but in reality can only hold a much smaller volume of content. When Vinpower validates a flash drive as being a certain size, you can rest assured that the drive meets the specifications to qualify. Accuracy ensures reliability, which provides stability, which ensures that each flash drive will meet the high standard Vinpower has set for this project. Typically, when people hear quality, they think that’s synonymous with expensive. Vinpower has and continues to be a leader in matching quality and affordability. This happens two ways:
Piodata was created specifically for the duplication market to fill the void left by the top Japanese ODD manufacturers
