Press Release: Transcend introduces T.sonic™ 320 - A Slick New Combination of MP3 Player and Flash Drive

Taipei, February 5, 2008

Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a global leader in flash memory products, recently introduced a new addition to its line of T.sonic™ MP3 players - T.sonic 320. With a shiny, precious jewel-inspired design, the T.sonic 320 really gets people's attention. Thanks to its built-in USB connector, the 320 operates just like a USB flash drive, making it easier than ever to transfer songs, pictures, documents and other files from any computer with a USB port, without the hassle of carrying around bulky cables.

Transcend's new T.sonic 320 is compact and portable, with measurements of only 85.5mm by 25.5mm by 13mm. Weighing in at a mere 29g (with rechargeable Li-ion battery), the T.sonic 320 is light enough for users to conveniently carry around all day long in a purse or pocket. Its special high-gloss front face is attractive and blends well with any fashion motif, so you can even wear it around your neck to show off your unique personal style. Additionally, the T.sonic 320 has a brilliant dual-color OLED display that can easily be viewed at any angle, even in broad daylight. As a high capacity portable music player, the T.sonic 320 allows for storage of up to 1000 songs, and provides 15 hours of seamless music entertainment on a full charge*.

The versatile T.sonic 320 also features several useful value-added functions, such as a built-in FM radio that can be easily recorded on the fly whenever you hear something you like. Other functions like A-B repeat and variable playback speeds are excellent tools for students and professionals alike, allowing easy review of important class lectures, meetings or foreign language lessons. Above all, the T.sonic 320 is a great music player with support for MP3, WMA, WAV, and even WMA-DRM10 subscription music. To adjust the music output, you can select from not only the seven built-in equalizer modes, but also Transcend's special USER EQ mode that lets you create your personal music style. Moreover, the T.sonic 320 includes a karaoke-style Lyrics Sync function so you can sing along to your favorite tunes with perfectly synchronized lyrics text display.

The compact, feature-rich T.sonic 320 supports display of 13 languages and comes bundled with a unique software application that allows you temporarily lock your computer, password protect files and partition the MP3 player's memory into Public and Private areas. It is now available in two capacities, each with an eye-catching jewel-like color: 2GB (Burgundy) and 4GB (Sapphire).
