USB drives are still the best way to exchange or store files quickly. The 32GB models are those that currently offer the best capacity / price, but they may be insufficient for some needs. Data storage in large amounts or large, such as high-definition videos. So why not opt for a key 64 GB? While investment is higher (45 to 90 euros), but they typically cost less than two key 32GB and above all provide better performance. Indeed, the memory chips have a higher density and often have higher rates than the 32GB keys. Certainly do not pass the performance doubled, but write speeds are increasing and we have such a measured gain of 65% on the JetFlash 780 Transcend between 32 and 64 GB.
More or less resistant housings Falls
Besides the performances, we have also found differences in the design of the boxes that appear to be more or less resistant to falls. The case of a key while plastic will break more easily than if the manufacturer has opted for the metal. In addition, there are two types of protection for the USB connector: either cap (effective but can be lost), or by a retractable system (not completely protects the connector). Finally, we also took into account bundled software. Some manufacturers deliver encryption programs that prove very useful to protect your sensitive files while others deliver an appreciable backup program to have a backup of your working files. These two functions are “more” significant.
