Lexar JumpDrive FireFly

Better known for their efforts in memory cards, Lexar actually produces several different devices based on flash including Solid State Drives. Their JumpDrive line is divided into two segments, Premium and Standard. The FireFly comes from the Standard line and is available in white, black and topaz in capacities of 1,2, 4, 8 and 16GB. The Lexar website states that a red 16GB version is 'coming soon'.

 

Specifications and Features

The JumpDrive FireFly is what I would consider a mini drive, around the same size in height and width, but the length is much shorter. On the software side, the FireFly comes with a 30 Day trial of D-Mailer.

 

Packaging

The packaging is comparable to what we have seen so far from the other drives. Lexar isn't going for extreme users or enthusiasts, just your typical Best Buy shoppers.

The back of the package lists some general features about the JumpDrive FireFly along with compatibility information.

At first I wasn't really sure where the FireFly name came from until I plugged the drive in and a blue glow covered the room. When the drive is activated a bright blue LED in the back of the unit emits enough light to light up a dark room.

Here we see the clear cap off of the drive. You can place the cap on the back of the drive and with the LED on, the effect looks very cool.

 

Accessories

Don't look for much when it comes to accessories, the drive does come with a 30 day trial to D-Mailer.
