5 KEY FACTORS WHEN CHOOSING A USB MEMORY

Store your files in different sizes

On our website we have a wide variety of USB sticks , among which you can choose those that best suit your needs. However, today we want your purchase to be much easier by giving you a series of tips that will help you choose the best LED USB flash Drive.

Brand

There are brands that have years of experience in storage media and guarantee reliable and compatible memory products. These manufacturers offer greater guarantees and ensure the highest quality standards in their components. Among them stands out the manufacturer Kingston , whose products we have talked to you about on previous occasions. Kingston flash drives are backed by a five-year warranty , free technical support and legendary brand reliability.

Ability

Another aspect to take into account is the capacity that we are going to need. In the market we can find a wide range of options, but, since it is increasingly necessary to transport larger files, we recommend pendrives such as the Kingston DataTraveler Elite G2 , available in 32, 64 and 128 GB and with enough capacity to transfer films, images and work files to take with us wherever we go.

Speed ​​and performance

A fast data transmission speed is vital if we want to avoid long waiting times in front of the computer among other problems, so we advise you to review the specifications of the USB memories in which you are interested.

Kingston’s DTEG2 drive is characterized by incredible performance that saves time when transferring videos, photos and other large files. The read and write speed of the 32GB USB is 180MB / s and 50MB / s respectively, while the read and write speed of the 64GB and 128GB USB is 180MB / s and 70MB / s .

Design

Although it may seem the least important on the list, for practical purposes it is not. The physical appearance of the pendrive can lead you to make the final decision of acquiring it or not. Since it is a device that we usually transport from one place to another, it is essential that its design is compact and durable.

The Kingston USB DataTraveler Elite G2 features a stylish , shockproof , water-resistant metal casing , as well as a removable lid, so you can confidently carry your data with you and complement any compatible device.

Compatibility

Finally, we have to look at the compatibility of the memory to know in which operating systems we can use it and the different compatible USB technologies.

DTEG2 supports the USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) specification , although it requires a host device intended for a USB 3.0 or 3.1 port. In addition, it is backward compatible with USB 2.0, which will allow its users to migrate to USB 3.0 in the future.
