With USB 3.0 becoming more of a standard these days many companies are coming out with new USB 3.0 flash drives. These new flash drives not only hold more data but they can transfer that data a hell of alot faster. No one wants to wait around for their files to transfer. ADATA has a new USB 3.0 flash drive that looks just as good as it performs. The DashDrive Elite UE700 has a brushed aluminum finish and features read and write speeds of up to 190 MB/s and 50 MB/s respectively. Let’s see what this drive is all about!

Why not speed up the process by installing the operating system using a USB flash drive. In this article we will show you how to take the Window 8 ISO and put it on a flash drive for fast and easy installation.
The USB flash drive has not really changed much.

Patriot has decided to change this with the Xporter XT Rage line of USB flash drives. These drives feature a Quad Channel configuration, data is intelligently managed and transferred simultaneously to 4 NAND chips resulting in vastly enhanced performance, particularly write speeds: Rage improves on traditional USB 2.0 Flash Drives to offer up to 27MB/s read and 25MB/s write transfer speeds. Let’s take a look…
Designer flash drives have been around for quite a while and Mimobot has been one of the top names when it comes to cool designer flash drives. They have quite a few cool flash drives that have their own interesting designs. Their line of licensed flash drives includes Hello Kitty, Star Wars, Halo, Domo, and Happy Tree Friends. Of course when they asked us if we wanted to review a drive we picked Star Wars. They were nice enough to send us their Stormtrooper Unmasked 2GB drive. It is called Unmasked because you have a 50/50 change of receiving Han or Luke. Read on to see which drive we received!
USB flash drives have been around for quite some time now. Out of all the drives I’ve ever reviewed my favorite line of drives has to be the Flash Voyager series from Corsair. The main reason is because they are basically indestructible. I take a flash drive with me everywhere and so I need one that is going to take the wear and tear! Corsair first came out with the original Flash Voyager, then the Flash Voyager GT, recently the Flash Padlock 2, and now the Flash Voyager GTR. The GTR is made to be fast boasting speeds of 32MB/s read and 28MB/s write! Corsair was nice enough to send us the 32GB version of the drive so let’s take a look!
Four years ago Corsair introduced the Flash Voyager USB drive, a USB drive that was practically indestructible. A Year after that they came out with the Flash Padlock, u USB drive that had a keypad on the front that allowed you to lock and unlock it to protect your data. It seems Corsair has put the two together and released the Flash Padlock 2, which is basically the Flash Voyager with the Padlock keypad on the front. So not only can you protect your data with a key code you get the awesome protection of the Flash Voyager design.
