It takes a special person indeed to put up with chasing me around the city to pick up my laptop. They delivered it back to me in Cherrybrook at the end of the day, all fixed! Thank you so much boys.

With larger storage capacity and faster transfer rates, it’s no wonder these days that people are using USB flash drives for more than just storing their photos and music files (including our own chief computer repairs geek). If you are just stepping into the world of electronics and computer, make sure to read this best flash drive guide to know all about it. These days, USB storage capacity exceeds 64GB, while transfer speeds exceed 100MB/second, making them capable of performing in line with an SDD or HDD. Another benefit is cost – prices just keep on dropping.

Lets have a look at the PNY Turbo 3.0 64GB Flash Drive for example. It has read speeds of up to 95MB/second and write speeds of up to 60MB/second. It is 10 times faster than the standard PNY USB 2.0 flash drives, allowing for super quick transfer or large files such as movies. It will cost you around $50 while the 128GB capacity drive will set you back around $90.  It is also available in 32GB. It’s ease-of-use is the same as previous USB technologies, with the exception of an increase in speed. It’s design is also worth a mention - it has a sliding connector, meaning no cap to lose.

Small businesses these days are even using USB drives to backup data (of course, they should not be used as the only backup method). Many programs offer one-click backup to USB, allowing quick backup of files that can then be transported and stored off-site. Something to keep in mind though, is encryption. If you business data requires protection, you need to choose a USB flash drive that supports backup encryption. Encrypting data with a password is simple, however if you lose your password, decrypting the data could be impossible. It’s a good idea to write the password down and store it in a safe location.

Aside from computer repairs, Mobile Geeks can assist you with determining the appropriate storage methods and devices for your business or task so don’t delay and contact your mobile geek today!
