LINDY launches USB Transfer cable for Vista

Stockton-on-Tees, UK (7th June 2007) – LINDY Electronics today announced the launch of its new USB Transfer Cable for Vista that provides users with an easy way to transfer data from their XP PC to a Vista PC or between two Vista PCs.

The LINDY USB Transfer Cable works in conjunction with Vista’s Windows Easy Transfer software to make it easy for the user to transfer data and settings to another computer. It is particularly useful for an XP user who has purchased a new Vista machine. By simply connecting the two machines by the transfer cable, via available USB 2.0 ports, the user can transfer all of their important settings, data and files quickly and easily, without the time consuming process of burning CDs or DVDs, copying to Flash Drives or the need to setup a network connection. It will also be a great time saving device to enable IT staff to clone one Vista machine’s settings to another.

“For most home users starting up a new computer can be an exciting event, but the process of transferring account details and settings, files and program data can take all of the fun out of it,” comments Stephen Fawcett, Senior Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “The last thing users want to do is fiddle around setting up a network connection or spend hours relaying data by disks or Flash Drives. The LINDY USB Transfer Cable will take care of these tedious tasks quickly and easily, so they can get back to the fun of exploring their new acquisition.”

The benefits of using the USB Transfer Cable for Vista include:

• Works automatically with Vista’s built-in ‘Windows Easy Transfer’ software

• Allows connection between an XP PC and a Vista PC, or between two Vista PCs

• Much neater, more convenient solution than using CDs, DVDs, Flash Drives or external hard drives to transfer data

• Very quick and easy to setup and use; allows you to transfer:

- User accounts
- Files and Folders
- Email messages, settings and contacts
