Top 8 Best USB 3.0 64GB Flash Drives

Smartphone or tablet at play, You want data storage that fits your specific needs. Practical and comfortable, the 64 GB USB 3.0 key often offer better rates than the 32GB model. USB drives are still the best way to exchange or store files quickly. Data stored in large amounts, such as high definition videos. So why not opt ​​for a key 64 GB? There are two types of  USB connectors: either cap (effective, but can be lost), or by a retractable system (not completely protects the connector).

Corsair Flash Voyager Slider X2

This key appears rather compact and practical with a housing part that protect the USB connector. It is delivered without software, but gets great results for speed tests with video files. You can measure at speeds up to 200MB/s read and 90MB/s write. Speeds greatly reduce the transfer of JPEG pictures and X2 Slider shows slowest writing.

Corsair Flash Voyager GS

Corsair launches a second version of its Flash Voyager GS with a new extremely strong zinc alloy housing. Attention also to the large width of the case that can prevent connecting other USB device into a laptop. The key turns fast reading, but only slightly when writing file size decreases. But a significantly faster bandwidth of 295 MB / s reads and 170 MB / s write.

Lexar JumpDrive Secure M10

The JumpDrive Secure M10 has impressed us with its e-ink display, which gives the top of the case the key fill rate. Too bad the plastic design is a little dull. Lexar also provided for the protection of sensitive data and delivers the encryption program EncryptStick lite for Windows and Mac OS. The key offers excellent read rate and write (Up to 100MB/s Read Speed, Up to 55MB/s Write Speed).

Kingston HyperX Fury

As for performance, the results are mixed. The playback speeds are good (USB 3.0 flash drive capable of 90MB/s reads and 30MB/s write). The Hyper X Fury is not the fastest key, but it can suit most needs, particularly if you frequently transfer files of 700 MB or more.

Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0

The DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 is proving very fast read (276 MB / s maximum), but the write speeds fall rapidly with the size of files (154 MB / s for video but 22 MB / s for photos). We liked its beautiful blue and black casing reinforced against impacts, but this makes the shell thick enough (1.6 cm), which can hinder the connection of other devices. Cleverly, the cap of the USB connector connects to the end at the end of the key to not getting lost during use.

Lexar JumpDrive P10

A bit expensive, this model Lexar is distinguished by a very rugged, as established in part of metal, which also helps to dissipate the heat well under heavy use. We especially appreciate his consistent performance with very good flow rates regardless of the file size. It rises to Up to 265MB/s read and 245MB/s write and 51 MB / s for JPEG pictures.

Lexar JumpDrive P20

This is indeed the case with large file transfer such as heavy length videos and it offers the transfer rate (400MB/s read 270MB/s write): P20 crushes the competition! We also appreciate the design of the box with its metal back which ensures good robustness. It comes with standard encryption capabilities, Excellent 4k random transfer performance. You can purchase this one about the cost of $116.

SanDisk Extreme

With a retractable USB connector, this key offers excellent flow rates both reading and writing (245 MB/s read and 190 MB / s for writing maximum). But we especially like its consistent performance for all file sizes, the big video to the small picture. For sensitive files, it comes with an encryption program for Windows (you have to download the Mac OS version) that proves easy to use. Provides password protection for your private files.
