Transcend

 

Transcend has been in the memory game for quite a while and thanks to Memory.com we have the chance to look at some of their latest offerings.

 

In our latest Dual Channel Roundup, Transcend DDR400 didn't stand out too well. This time around we have a few different products from Transcend including their latest Pen Drive as well as some of the latest in camera storage.

 

JetFlash USB Drive

 

Pen Drives, Flash Drives, Handy Drives or whatever it is you like to call them have become very popular. JetFlash is one of the best looking drives on the market and thanks to the ease of USB; the JetFlash drive is plug and play at its best.

 

 

Within the flash drive is a small red LED which shows activity. For example, when copying, deleting, etc the LED flashes. The Transcend JetFlash looks excellent, works like a charm and is priced quite competitively when compared to other flash drives on the market.

 

Secure Digital and XD Picture Card

 

As far as camera storage goes, there are two common storage types used. Compact Flash and Secure Digital. Compact flash is a lot more common in older cameras and considered quite slow when compared to the newer Secure Digital standard. XD, on the other hand, is the latest in portable storage technology - it's faster, provides better features and is smaller.

 

 

 

Both cards are excellent and due to patent reasons like Memory Stick from Sony, Fuji Film is currently the only people able to produce the XD Picture Card. If you're currently in the market for a camera try to stay clear of the older Compact Flash type and steer towards something that uses a XD card or the Secure Data card. Both are of excellent quality and with sizes ranging above 512MB, there is no reason you would run out of space any time soon in your everyday digital camera.
