PNY USB 3.0 Turbo Flash Drive provides speed and storage.
On any given day, I transfer files at least a dozen times. It’s necessary to my workflow and can become a hassle especially if the flash drive I’m using does not have the speed or capacity I need to finish the task at hand. This was a huge problem for me when I was in college. It was the beginning of the flash drive age and the only affordable ones could only store 128MB of information. It was an amazing feat when that 1GB threshold was crossed and now we strive for much higher capacities as we carry media files with us like we carry keys.
Before this past Christmas the largest capacity thumb drive I owned was 8GB. I thought that was plenty. That was until I upgraded my laptop to a model with a smaller base hard drive. It’s become very important to me to utilize exterior methods of storage as well as cloud-based options like Dropbox. So, this Christmas when I pulled gifts out of my stocking, I was shocked to find a thumb drive with 128GB of storage. Just image, it’s a thumb drive with the same amount of storage as my computer’s hard drive.
This thumb drive is from PNY. It’s called the Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive. As I mentioned, my drive is 128GB of storage space, but the Turbo comes in multiple size capacities – 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. It is very light – only weighing 5.6 grams and can work with any operating system out of the package.
Because it’s a USB 3.0 drive it will transfer files approximately 10 times faster than standard USB 2.0 Flash Drives. This is great for transferring very large files like movies or other video files. The PNY USB 3.0 Turbo Flash Drive features a sliding collar design. It’s a capless design with an integrated loop for attachment to key chains, backpacks, etc.
I’ve been very impressed with the Turbo’s performance thus far. It’s lightweight, which makes it easy to carry from place to place. I really love that it has a capless design, too, because that means you don’t have to worry about losing part of your drive.
The PNY USB 3.0 Turbo Flash Drive is available starting at $9.99 for the 16GB model. For more information, visit pny.com/Turbo_3_0_USB_Flash_Drive.
