Transcend JetFlash V70 anti-shock USB drive has rubberized coating

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Storage, USB

Transcend JetFlash V70

There is never a shortage of flash drives on the market, and what makes Transcend’s JetFlash V70 different is its rubber coating.  It is capable of surviving some good drops, which is important when you are lugging several of these things around.  And don’t get me started on the importance of the tethered cap holder. 

The color of the drive tells you much memory each of them have.  The purple is 4 GB, the orange is 8 GB, and the red is 16 GB.  No word on the price, though.

Corsair Flash Voyager GT: World’s Fastest Thumb Drive at 128GB

Corsair Flash Voyager GT: Fastest Thumb Drive at 128GB

Take a good look at the Corsair Flash Voyager GT.  It may be a little fat around the USB connector, but it is, according to the company, the fastest USB drive in the world. Well, that’s according to the company, so we can take that with a grain of salt, but still, impressive nonetheless.  With reading speeds of up to 32 MB/s and write speeds of up to 25.6 MB/s, that might be hard to top, at least for now.  Sadly, we don’t have word on pricing or availability, but we do know it will pack in 128GB of storage space.

Split Stick two-sided flash drive

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Accessories, USB, Design, Storage

Split StickI don’t know about you, but I’m pretty dependent on my flash drives.  Except for the amount of storage they hold, most of them are pretty much the same.  The Split Stick is different because it is double-sided. 

So the user gets 4GB of memory, but it is divided into two 2GB partitions, if you will.  That might be good if you want to differentiate your files, or if two people are sharing one stick.  The Split Stick is available for $19.99 in colors of orange, blue, pink, red, black, violet, grey, or green.
