This has got to be the plainest looking drive in the Lest. Like a blast from the past, this flash drive's design is simple, but also comes with the drawbacks that other manufacturers have been trying to rectify. For starters, the plastic body is Just too flimsy to be considered sturdy enough to handle a fall. In fact, the plastic feels like it might crack under the slightest pressure from your thumb. The cap mechanism is also ancient, and those who buy this drive are surely going to lose / misplace their caps at some point in time.
This vanilla drive is actually Re. 1 more expensive than the SanDisk Ultra Backup, and I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why. It's slower than the SanDisk UB16 in every test, save the assorted write ,peed test. That's more to do with the faults of the SanDisk UB16 than with the Transcend. Continuing the trend, this drive is also rescued by its software. The jetFlash Elite software can take care of backups, email, favourites, 128-bit encryption, and PC locks.
