    Customer Questions & Answers

    Customer Reviews

    The plastic case feels cheap & the button to extend & retract the USB port is hard to operate.
    Kindle Customer
    Today, one of the drives failed, corrupting the data in some files and giving me a "write protected" error message when I try to load new files on it.
    flatpicker
    For smaller than 4GB, flash drives are useful for general file transfer such as document, pictures, music files.

    Physically, this Transcend 16 GB JetFlash 500 Retractable USB 2.0 Flash Drive looks almost identical to the SanDisk Cruzer Micro 16GB drive. The retractable USB plug on the Transcend drive also works EXACTLY the same way as the Sandisk (I'm surprised that somebody hasn't got sued yet). But that's where the similarity ends, because the Transcend JetFlash is a whole lot faster!

    A bit of background information: I own both the Sandisk Cruzer Micro 4GB and 16GB versions. What I noticed is that the 16GB version is much slower than the 4GB version, especially when witting data. I even contacted Sandisk customer support, trying to find out what is the speed of Cruzer Micro. The response I got was quite useless:
    "There is no guaranteed speed for SanDisk Cruzer Micro flash drives, as the speed for these flash drives have not been tested. If you need a flash drive with fast data transfer speed, we recommend SanDisk Extreme Cruzer Contour for this."

    Prior to ordering this JetFlash drive, I visited the Transcend USA web site to search for information. Surprise, surprise! The data transfer speed of JetFlash 500 (under the 'V' series) is actually specified as:
    "Read 15 MByte/s, Write 7 MByte/s (16GB)"

    Once I received this Transcend JetFlash drive, I put it through several benchmark programs, to compare against the Sandisk Cruzer Micro:

    - For typical photo files, write speed of the Transcend varies from 6.8MB/s (for 1MB file) to 11.3MB/s (for 5MB file). In contrast, the Sandisk only ranges from 2.0MB/s to 3.5MB/s.

    I've had several Transcend flash drives and find them to be quite good and fast. This flash has lots of room for storage and a free software download that gives you all sorts of extras, including a place to save passwords, a browser and a whole lot more --- plus easy syncing of data.

    Not much you can say about storage other than it's fast and dependable with free software to help make your life and work easier. It's a nice looking little unit and I really like the way you simply slide the connection out.

    UPDATE: I accidentally left my Transcend in my jeans and washed them. I'm pleased to report that the Transcend manned up and worked as well as before it took a bath. While I don't recommend this sort of treatment, it's good to know this little guy can take a bit of rough treatment.

    Highly recommended.

    Shipping was fast and the drive worked great for three weeks. Then it just siezed up. I get the error message "the specified I/O operation on \Device\Harddisk1\DR2 was not completed before the time-out period expired. The options are cancel, try again and continue. No matter which you choose, you keep getting the same error message, and it freezes up. Emailed the manufacturer and their response was to use their recovery tool. If they have a recovery tool, this must happen often. The problem with this tool is it wipes out everything you have on the disk, and I can't get the files off of this piece of junk. First and last time I have purchased a Transcend device.

    Seemed to work fine for a couple months then one day it just stopped initializing. It keeps "rebooting" itself within 30 seconds of connecting it...no way to scan or fix...all data lost.

    Product Packaging: Standard PackagingSize Name: 16 GB
    I purchased this as a Gold Box deal, so I won't include price as a factor in my review- in all fairness to later reviews. I purchased this for the sole purpose of transporting music and picture files.

    I received this yesterday and plugged it into a USB 1.1 port on my case- Not a 2.0! I installed the Transcend Jetflash elite software. I haven't utilized anything in the software, but it includes features for:

    1. Outlook Expres and Windows email
    2. easy access to your favorites in Intenet Explorer and Firefox browsers
    3. secret-zip setup- password feature
    4. Data backup and Data sync
    5. PC Lock
    6. My Jetflash- shows what's on the drive

    After installing their software, there was still 15.1 GB available, which I believe is what's the norm for a 16GB drive.

    Performance is usually the most critical issue (besides price) with all drives. Needless to say, that is not a big issue with me, since I have it plugged into a 1.1 port! lol. But I did decide to do a couple of performance checks for the tech geeks! (Yes I fall into that category, too!) These specs are read from an external Maxtor One Touch 1TB hard drive and written to the Transcend 16GB jump drive- into a 1.1 port and out a 1.1 port! Sorry, I didn't feel like pulling the full tower case out to reach the 2.0 ports!

    A 77.2 mb music folder took 13 seconds (nearly 6mb/sec and a 337 mb music folder took 52 seconds (6.5mb/sec). I imagine it would perform quite better using 2.0 ports.

    The only con I can think of would be the somewhat cheap construction (plastic) of this drive. It rattles slightly when you shake it, so rough users might have issues with this. Hopefully, some of this may help you with your decision!
