Toshiba TransMemory EX II 64GB USB 3.0 Encrypted Flash Drive Review
Bohs Hansen / 3 years ago
Toshiba has a lot of experience in the storage area and it’s a pleasure to take a closer look at their TransMemory EX II 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive today, a fast and secure pocket drive.
This tiny flash drive doesn’t just promise us great speeds over 200MB/s at both writing and reading, it also supports Windows ReadyBoost and comes with Toshiba’s Pad Locker software to encrypt and password protect your drive.
The fast USB 3.0 Super Speed allows you to transfer 25GB of video content in less than 4 minutes, that’s about the size of an average Blueray movie. Not bad.
Windows ReadyBoost allows external memory storage to be used as a cache for the hard disk drive of a PC. Windows ReadyBoost capability contributes to enhanced PC performance, such as reduced time required for PC start-up – another way of improving older hard drive setups.
One of the things that sets this flash drive apart from the rest is the Pad Locker software. Not only does it allow you to create a password protected and encrypted drive, it allows you to set the amount you want to encrypt. You could do half and half or whatever ratio you have a need for and how many files of yours actually need to be protected to that degree.
Pad Locker also allows you to format the drive as FAT32, even for models above 64GB and it can handle multiple devices on the same computer at once; a great little piece of software.
The TransMemory EX II is backed by a five-year warranty from the date of purchase.
