Computer Hardware & Software |Rerview USB 3.0 vs. External Hard Disk Drives |Recently we reviewed, and tested a few USB 3.0 flash drives from Kingston and Kingmax products are mwakili of various models of the product. Apparently after we had failed to test Kingmax pemrosesa small files and turns USB 3.0 flash drives are slow in reading the file and this never happened before in Kingston so it is good to wear a lot of people. Of course, there may be a better product than Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 or worse than the Kingmax ED-01, but we do not know about them before. Perhaps some of the USB flash drive we will test today will be.

We will also include an external hard disk with USB 3.0 interface into our review today. HDD mobile phone certainly superior to the flash drives in storage capacity, but has drawbacks such as larger dimensions and weight. With a precision mechanism in their design, HDD are also more vulnerable to shocks and hits. On the other hand, external HDD used to be superior to a USB flash drive in the 2.0 era. So, we were interested whether these things have changed with the introduction of USB 3.0.

Testing Participants

Transcend JetFlash 700

  • Capacity: 32 GB
  • Interface: USB 3.0
  • Specified sequential read speed: 70 MB/s
  • Dimensions: 19 x 8.8 x 69.5 mm
  • Weight: 10.3 g
Transcend JetFlash 700 looks like a copy of B10 Blaze Silicon Power, has a similar size, weight, materials, LED indicators, a certain speed, etc. The only difference is the form of case (but still not close the connector can be placed at the end of the drive) and lack of thermochromic paint . As opposed to B10 Blaze, the JetFlash 700 is not declared to be compatible with USB 1.1 but this can hardly bother anyone today.

Of course, manufacturers can not do without announcing a specific feature of the product as a competitive advantage. Here, it is the use of ultrasonic welding in the manufacture of this case. We can not see anything special about the case of the drive, though.

The advantage is more obvious is that this flash drive is even cheaper than the B10 Blaze.

Silicon Power Blaze B10

  • Capacity: 32 GB
  • Interface: USB 3.0
  • Specified sequential read speed: 70 MB/s
  • Dimensions: 17.4 x 10 x 72.4 mm
  • Weight: 9.5 g
The device is small and light looks very similar to a cousin of the various companies that can not boast of a blue USB connector. It has a transparent black with blue activity indicator. Close the connector can not be repaired at the other end of the case.

The special feature of this drive is the pattern in case that changes color depending on the temperature of the drive. Although B10 Blaze did not get very hot in the workplace, the pattern actually changes color from blue to lilac in standby mode at high loads. Well, the paint on the device can not really match the sensitivity of the Touch & See the sticker on the packaging of products that allow you to test this feature: the sticker changes color instantly right after you touch the circle with your finger.

Manufacturers determine the speed reading course and not too high as the current USB 3.0 drive away. Writing speed is not declared at all, so we suspect this product has a characteristic speed of mediocrity. Price is an indication of the same thing. Blaze B10 cost as much money as midrange USB 2.0 flash drive .
