We are really into downloading when we use the computer at home. I either download anime videos, music, or console games while my siblings would be downloading OSTs or albums that they fancy listening to. We would either use the desk top where I write those files into recordable discs or a lap top which seems to have a faster download rate. But, due to plenty of files downloaded every now and then, space gets limited so flash drives are really essential.
I have used a couple of flash drives before and as every one would often admit, a larger capacity is really better so when I found about Transcend's JF V30 / 8GB available at the computer store where we got our desk top, I immediately purchased one.
Looking at the manuals as well as online details, it is fully compatible with Hi-Speed USB 2.0, easy Plug and Play installation, comes with JetFlashTM Elite Software pack, Driverless (Only Windows® 98SE needs the enclosed driver), and USB powered so no external power, or battery needed.
With a capacity of 8GB, you could not only store sizes that can be compared with DVDs but also with Dual Layered DVDs. It could read 10 MByte/s and write 3 MByte/s. Data Retention could last up to 10 years. CE, FCC, BSMI certified and comes in Black / Purple color. With 2.4 × 0.6 × 0.3 in / 60 × 16.5 × 8.1mm dimension and weighing only 0.2 oz / 7g, it is really something convenient.
It comes with a strap so you can wear it if you want and use it immediately as it could easily be detached from the strap.
Well, like all USB flash drives, when it gets corrupted, all the files could be lost and with a big capacity, would also be a big loss. Fortunately, I haven't experienced something like that as I have only used it with computers at home and not with others at computer shops.
I would only recommend a 8 GB flash drive and if you would like to go over that capacity, it might be wise to just purchase a hard disk drive with a larger capacity and have it in a hard disk enclosure since with 16 GB and higher Flash Drives, the prices are close enough to purchase hard drives.
