64gb flash drive wow
That price isn't so hot
Yeah I was looking at that the other day...if it wasn't so pricey it'd be more tempting...I ended up just getting a 16GP Patriot X-Porter...it's a little on the beefy side of sizes, but has pretty good reviews and really is plenty big enough for my needs. I'm looking forward to seeing more and more larger USB drives like that 64GB coming our way.
If you're curious here's what I ended up getting to hold me over:
i love the Voyager series: its durable, long lasting, secure, but not really on the fast side (20MB/s avg). But seriously, with that storage, I might as well just use it to store all my old DVDs. Either way, I still like my 8GB OCZ Rally2 drive. 35MB/s FTW!
i need a new one, i was thinking the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227332
I got the 8GB version of that exact drive
Higher capacity = failure
can you explain? Sure, it may not be quite as fast as some other drives and yes its expensive, but for those who can afford it, it would make a good backup for video and other large files.
I got an identical Voyager but only 16GB not 64!!
It's very rugged, and ideal to transfer stuff between my pc's.
At 16GB the capacity is still a tad too much for me, but well it's good to err on the extra side I guess. And I keep 4GB constantly on ready boost.
Now 64GB... I don't even dream it, let alone at that price!
Edit: about the transfer rate, if what that user said is true then it's really a flop. My Voyager transfers 10GB of files in ~ 4 or 5 minutes... and the 64GB one takes 9 hours to transfer 28GB?!? Not good...
He said it sucks.
