Ultra-Portable Backup Drive with Capacity Meter
It's important that you ensure the work you do on your netbook or notebook is secure and protected. And with a busy lifestyle, there's no time for the hassle and complexity of a traditional backup solution, and no room to carry an external hard drive and cables with you. Developed with this in mind, the Lexar Echo MX backup drive is an easy-to-use, ultra-portable drive with capacity meter, which provides a convenient way to quickly and automatically back up and protect your files on the go. The drive is available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities
Easy-to-Use Automatic Backup Solution
Designed for netbook and notebook users, the Lexar Echo MX is a high-capacity, high-performance, flash-based backup drive that easily plugs into your system's USB port to provide automatic backup of your files. Built-in Lexar Echo backup software activates as soon as it's plugged in, to securely and automatically protect files with 128-bit AES encryption. The drive also performs ongoing backups to any files in use, and restores previously saved versions of a file-providing peace of mind that your data is safe. What's more, the software works across platforms with one seamless interface, allowing you to easily back up or restore files on either a PC or a Mac system
Quality Back Up and Store More
The high-performance Lexar Echo MX backup drive comes in a range of high-capacity options-from 8GB to 128GB-so you can back up and protect large volumes of files and data on the go. And higher capacities offer higher performance-allowing you to quickly transfer large volumes of data with speeds up to 30MB/s read and 17MB/s write. This means you can quickly protect and store more of the files that matter-great for your mobile lifestyle
Check Available Storage Space a Glance

      This large-capacity drive allows me to work on FCPX projects on my laptop or any other computer that has FCPX. This is the first time I worked on a video project from a thumb drive, breaking the notion that these small drives are only for storage or Office documents.

      Of course I regularly backup the data to a desktop drive, but I'm able to work off this Lexar in the field. Before there were any large thumb drives in this price range I used portable bus-powered hard drives, which uses more battery power and are a bit cumbersome because they're larger, fragile, and require a cable.

      The Lexar is an excellent replacement for an external hard drive. I hope to buy another one (or perhaps a larger one) if they stay affordable.

      The product does what it should and is quite fast. However the sliding case cover extends outward to cover the USB connector and actually makes the device longer. This is a fundamental design flaw. The cover should have been made to retract to keep the device short and compact.

        I back up my laptop on to this key. Once I accidentally left it in my shirt pocket and threw the shirt into the washing machine. I realized this only when I was emptying the dryer! I was positive that the key would be damaged. But to my surprise my data (all of it) survived the ordeal. I performed detailed disk checks, and they reported no failures. I am impressed. Bought myself another one.

                Comments about Lexar 128GB Echo MX Backup Drive:

                Since I upgraded to a Macbook Air (256GB hard drive) from a Macbook with a 500GB drive, I was pressed for space. So I moved my iTunes library to the 128GB Echo.

                At first, I used the factory FAT32 partition and responsiveness was Slooooow. So I reformatted Mac journaled. I realize given the current firmware, the capacity metering may no longer work on OSX, but I don't care. I just needed someplace small and unobtrusive (not a bulky USB external spinning drive) to store my iTunes library.

                So far, this is it.

                  Comments about Lexar 128GB Echo MX Backup Drive:

                  I had been looking for a reasonably priced, large USB drive for a while when I finally stumbled upon this particular deal. A good name, and less than $1/gb, made my mind up.

                  The USB key itself is fairly average. It has a red light on top that flashes when it's in use, and a grey LED that indicates how much space has been used/remains.

                  It comes with backup/encryption software, which allows the user to specify what is to be backed up, and provides for continuous backup. The software works well, and at the moment maintains a backup of almost all of my "stuff". Documents, pictures, videos. This beast holds them all.

                  On the downside, the key comes formatted for FAT32. Sorry Lexar, but seriously - 21st century and some large-ish files here? It's easy enough to copy the backup software off the drive, reformat it to a decent format (NTFS in my case) and put the backup software back - just make sure you do this before putting all your "stuff" on the drive.

                  There are two other minor niggles for me. Firstly, there is no cap. The USB end of this drive retracts into the body, but is not covered and so in pockets such as mine will doubtless collect dust. I must seek a cap.

                  The other niggle is really something that comes with the price - it's USB 2.0. This drive will not speed through your backup, but instead will meander its way through all those files you're copying. But really, that's what I was prepared to pay for, and it just stays plugged in until it's done.

                  Other than these issues, a great drive and tiny storage solution.

                    I use this for storing large video files and photos. This flash drive has excellent capacity, especially considering the price of similar capacity drives from other manufacturers. The write speed is not quite as fast as some other flash drives out there, but it is by no means slow.

                    Please note that this drive is formatted in the exFAT(Extended File Allocation Table) file system. If you are using on a computer that is not set up to use the exFAT file system (e.g. a computer running Windows XP which does not already have the free Windows exFAT patch) this drive will not function properly and you will not be able to store any data on it. If you want to use the drive in its native exFAT file system on a pre-Vista windows computer, simply get the free exFAT patch from Microsoft. Alternatively, you can re-format the drive to NTFS, which will make it compatable with older Windows systems - however, the formatting either needs to be done on a newer system or a computer that already has the exFAT patch.

                    Comments about Lexar 128GB Echo MX Backup Drive:

                    Best thing - the cheapest 128GB USB memory stick I was able to find (as of March 2012).

                    Worst thing - the slider that is supposed to cover it when not in use is very unstable. As a result, the memory stick stays almost all the time open in my pocket/backpack, exposed to anything that touches it. This is the only reason I gave it 3, not 4 or 5 stars.

                      The product does what it should and is quite fast. However the sliding case cover extends outward to cover the USB connector and actually makes the device longer. This is a fundamental design flaw. The cover should have been made to retract to keep the device short and compact.

                          This large-capacity drive allows me to work on FCPX projects on my laptop or any other computer that has FCPX. This is the first time I worked on a video project from a thumb drive, breaking the notion that these small drives are only for storage or Office documents.

                          Of course I regularly backup the data to a desktop drive, but I'm able to work off this Lexar in the field. Before there were any large thumb drives in this price range I used portable bus-powered hard drives, which uses more battery power and are a bit cumbersome because they're larger, fragile, and require a cable.

                          The Lexar is an excellent replacement for an external hard drive. I hope to buy another one (or perhaps a larger one) if they stay affordable.

                            Another perfectly quiet and properly functioning USB drive. No surprises, no problems. Did not come with a cap, so I cut one of the plastic caps from one of my Apple iPod/iPhone cables and that works perfectly. The performance is average, which is fine for me, since capacity was the key here, and the price is good.

                              After maxing out 2 flash drives on my digital picture frame, I needed something reliable. On this new flash drive there's a whole lot of room to work with. So far, I have seen some very good results since I have been using it on my digital picture frame.

                                It's good capacity and works well. I use it on my MacBook Air and the fan was on pretty loud, so I believe the backup software is bad on resource, it does it's job though so backup copy is complete.

                                I changed to use the disk encryption which is a part of the Mac system and so far it's been working well.
