Review: Transcend JetFlash 500 8GB USB2.0

, By Patcoola

Don’t Recommend, I can’t recommend this product. The Transcend JetFlash 500 8GB is another cheap generic product with nothing to offer consumers. Very easy to touch push to slide cap design maybe too sensitive with time but locks into place strongly.

This product has a small blue activity light, if that’s something you’re interested in.

But how does this product perform, this product has an amazing read speed at about 25 Megabytes per second, however, that was the only nice thing about it, the device’s performance is bottle necked by it’s very slow write speed and write performance at about 5 Megabytes per second. At 5 MB/s it would take 27 minutes to write 8 Gigabytes of data to the device.

USB 2.0 Benchmarks

Excellent read speed, but the write speed is absolutely terrible. Overall the write speed bottlenecks the hole device’s performance.
