Very often, I face a common question - which flash drive should I purchase? Or which flash drive do you use? Or which flash drive is faster? Considering a number of factors, the answer is Transcend and always. Transcend is a brand which I can trust and recommend to others. It's the king of USB flash drives!
Flash drives you know are the most commonly used devices for offline file sharing. When we share a movie, large software or documents we usually use USB Flash Drives or Micro SD Cards. If you need to transfer the files faster and your drive is slower, definitely it kills your valuable time.
If you want super speed, then you must go for USB 3.0 Flash Drives. But your device may not have supports for this. In that case, you will get only USB 2.0 features. And some brands will charge you too much. So, I always prefer Transcend considering the following factors:
- Actual Storage Capacity
To be honest, the speed varies with the models. But I can assure that you will get at least 7/8 MB write speed (per second) in any transcend flash drive. Though the speed depends on what type of file you're transferring. And the read speed will be at least 20 MB per second.
In terms of capacity, Transcend is great. All of you know that, the actual capacity of any memory device is less than the stated capacity. Some brands will give you too less space. But a 16 GB Transcend flash drive will give you at least 15 GB storage capacity.
Though it's not a unique feature, still I would like to mention that, Transcend is compatible with any hardware and any software wherever the USB flash drive is supported.
More than 6 years ago, I purchased a 2 GB Transcend USB Flash Drive. It's still functioning smoothly. Transcend's flash drives are really durable.
Transcend gives lifetime warranty for its flash drives. I'm not sure but it could be product lifetime warranty. You can register your product through Transcend's website and check the status of your warranty.
Couple of weeks ago, I purchased a 32 GB flash drive. In my currency, it costs me $ 15. And I think the price is quite reasonable.
