This isn’t the first time we’ve reported on the World’s largest USB flash drive as that bar continues to rise.
Yesterday [Sep 23, 2008] Transcend announced their newest V20 drive is available at 64GBs. That’s as big as my laptop from 10 years ago. Now it’s the size of my thumb. I put the date in here to so we can reflect back in another 5 years and laugh.
The V20 Transcend includes their value add JetFlash elite data management suite which includes: Software that turns the V20 into a key to automatically log on to website accounts, or even temporarily lock the computer to prevent unauthorized access. Users can also browse their favorite bookmarked websites and check their email from any compatible computer with the included internet favorites and mobile email functions.
Even though Readyboost never really caught on, the drive has been thoroughly tested for it’s official support.
Transcend has built a great name for themselves with the Jetflash UFD product line. It’s been tested as one of the fastest drives on the market, simple designs which are small and compact.
The new Transcend Jetflash V33 is no exception. At just 60 x 16 x 8 mm in size and 7g of weight the 1 through 8GB size would hardly let you know they are there.
As with all Jetflash UFDs you have the option of downloading the Jetflash Elite software package for personal UFD management. The software suite includes:
One year ago, almost to the day, IOCell introduced the self proclaimed “World’s largest capacity flash drive” at the CeBIT 2006 show.

Card readers are a dime-a-dozen but with newer cards such as SDHC and miniSDHC you could be missing what you really need. The Transcend RDM2 has a boat-load of connectivity and as I write this, the most diverse card reader available.
The multi-card reader is lightening fast for data transfer when using SD, miniSD, Compact Flash, Microdrive, Multimedia Card, Memory Stick new generation Secure Digital cards and all important SDHC and miniSDHC. Now if you didn’t know the SDHC and miniSDHC are not backward compatible so although they look like the form-factor of SD and miniSD, they don’t work like them.
USB refined fashion designs continue to rise in popularity. Take the Transcend V90 for example, the new Transcend UFD is coated with mother-of-pearl and stylish metal chassis makes for one trendy device. Inspired by USB UFDs becoming fashion accessories the V90 is also high tech.
Bundled with the JetFlash Elite software there are eight valuable functions; auto login, PC lock, favorites, secret zip, e-mail, data backup, My JetFlash and online update. Hmm…sounds close to U3, lets call JetFlash Elite U2.
Tired of grey and black colored Flash drives? USB flash drives are now candy colored thanks to Transcend’s Jetflash V60.
The drives are available in four colors, with each color corresponding to a different storage capacity: orange is 512MB, blue is 1GB, red is 2GB and green is 4GB. All the Transcend drives come with basic security software including a program capable of locking your PC from prying eyes and wayward fingers alike.
A Transcend press release for the Jetflash V60 claims that “Now everyone can transfer to a paperless society.” Yes, Western civilization was just waiting for the V60 to appear in order to be convinced that a paperless society was viable.
