Lexar Lightning

 

Fifteen Flash Drives Rounded Up

 

The Lexar JumpDrive Lightning offers the best of all worlds; speed, encryption and beauty. The drive is available in 1, 2, 4 and 8GB capacity sizes and features full 256-bit AES encryption that does not require two drive letters. You can store data with multiple passwords for separate partitions called Privacy Vaults, but for the most part the security is software based.

 

Specifications and Features

The specifications lean heavily to the transfer speed side of things and the Lightning produced the fastest write speeds in our testing. The drive also features powerful software based encryption that is second only to the Kingston Privacy Vault.

 

Packaging

Lexar does a good job of showing their drives in the package and the chrome finish really shines through.

The back of the package does a good job relating general information about the drive and as you can see the Lightning also comes with a lifetime warranty.

The JD Lightning is another cap / base drive but as you can see the keychain attachment area is much larger than some of the others in this roundup. One thing I found that may interest some of our readers; if you purchase the drive from Lexar's website they will engrave the drive for free.
