Think ROMA for USB-C and USB 3.1 dual-connector flash drive

usb1With USB-C and USB 3.1, ROMA combines two of the latest high-speed connectors in one flash drive, encased in a highly robust and elegant gold or space grey aluminium body. This way, up to 64 GB of data can be easily shared between the latest MacBook and other devices.

Following its award-winning Lightning and USB 3.0 flash drive iKlips for iOS devices, Adam Elements now presents a new dual connector storage innovation for MacBook. ROMA comes with both a USB-C connector and a standard USB 3.1 plug, which can be easily swivelled around. This way, users can easily store up to 64 GB of data from e.g. the latest USB-C-only MacBook models. The files can then be shared with other USB-C devices, including the latest Chromebook Pixel, other new notebooks or even selected smartphone models. But also data sharing with older USB compatible computers is possible, thanks to the standard USB 3.1 connector.

High-end connectors for fast data transfer
ROMA’s USB-C plug works either way up, so users will never need a second attempt when trying to connect it to their MacBook, smartphone or other compatible device. Whenever data needs to be moved to another computer with a standard USB socket only, the connector can simply be swivelled around, and a full-sized USB 3.1 plug is ready to go. On both ends, ROMA boasts high-end transfer speeds of up to 130 MB/s.

A perfect match for the MacBook
ROMA’s advanced connector technology comes encased in a both classy and robust design crafted from high quality materials. The flash drive’s casing is forged using a premium zinc-aluminium alloy. It is not only shock-resistant and dustproof, making it ideal for day-to-day use and transport. The two gold and space grey colour options give all enthusiasts a perfect match for the latest MacBook models. In order to make transport easier and add to the flash drive’s elegant design, ROMA comes with a brown handmade genuine leather strap, which fastens neatly onto bags and clothes. This way, ROMA serves as both a convenient storage solution and a stylish accessory.

Brilliant 4K UHD display now in 23.8 inch size

acMMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, announces a new display with brilliant 4K UHD resolution. At 23.8 inches, the 241P6VPJKEB display completes the UltraClear 4K UHD line-up with a new, smaller model. This latest member of the family still packs the same dazzling performance as its larger siblings, with UltraClear 4K UHD, 1.074 billion colours, 99% SRGB colour standard, plus integrated webcam and microphone.

Sharpest, most brilliant picture ever
Despite its modest dimensions, the new monitor brings a real sense of space to users’ desktops owing to the sharpness and clarity of the 4K resolution. UHD delivers four times the resolution of Full HD, with 3,840 x 2,160 pixels – for detail like never before. This is extra screen space that people can enjoy however they like (such as with videos or gaming after hours), or use to be more productive at work. Finance wizards, for instance, can view more rows and columns of their spreadsheets without losing the sense of clarity or fatiguing their eyes; creatives working on high-res content can see more detail per inch of screen, and can zoom in for detail or scroll out for an overview perspective, even have four designs side-by-side for comparison and still maintain the vital detail; and geophysicists viewing scientific images can investigate finest details with greater precision than ever.

Albert Ulfman, Product Manager Philips monitors EMEA at MMD says, “The new Philips 241P6VPJKEB is one of the first 23.8-inch 4K monitors to arrive on the market. It offers amazing viewing clarity for every content, and is an excellent fit for the resolution-scaling capabilities of Windows 10. It’s part of the commitment of MMD to giving users a more enjoyable and productive viewing experience with the equipment on their desks.”

Colours and panel technology with performance to match
With 4K UHD technology under the hood, the other components in the display have some tough performance standards to live up to. But like the other 4K UHD displays in the portfolio, the latest family member is engineered to unleash the power of the 4K UHD viewing experience. Take colour, for example: this 10-bit display delivers rich colour depth with 1.074 billion colours for smooth, natural reproduction without gradations and banding effects. And with over 99% sRGB support, users can be confident that any and all of the one billion colours they see on the display are vivid and true to life, and that colours remain precisely the same across different applications. The technology of the panels themselves also measures up: the expansive, wide-angle view and super-high contrast abilities of advanced AH-IPS perfectly complement the sense of space of 4K UHD. AH-IPS is also ideal for applications demanding colour accuracy and high brightness at all times, like photo retouching and graphic design.

Connectivity features that matter
Apart from the power of 4K UHD, the new display is designed with features that matter to users in today’s ultra-connected and always-on world. The display supports MultiView, so people can connect and view images from two separate sources – a PC and TV feed, for example – at the same time. With MHL technology on board, users can enjoy mobile content from smartphones or other devices on the big screen, or use the USB 3.0 hub to hook up devices and recharge them fast. There’s also an integrated webcam and microphone to connect and collaborate more effectively.

The new Philips 241P6VPJKEB/00 display, with an MSRP of £369, will be available from November 2015.
