PhotoFast i-FlashDrive (16GB) Review
There arenâ€™t many people that buy a tablet, phone and PC from the same brand, for example: you have a Galaxy S4, an Ipad Air and a HP laptop. Itâ€™s not a tricky job to transfer files from one device to another, but with the new PhotoFast i-FlashDrive (16GB)Â things get a lot easier. This handy flash drive goes for 169.99$ and itâ€™s offeringÂ connectors for USB, microUSB, Appleâ€™s 30-pin and Lighting.
The design is not what you would call revolutionary. The middle part has on one side a microUSB connector and on the other side a 30-pin Apple one. As you can see in the picture the USB 2.0 plug adapter comes on the microUSBâ€™s side while the Lighting plug (for new iPads and iPhones) comes on the left side (as looking at the image). Unfortunately the casing is made out of a cheap plastic so itâ€™s easily breakable and you will also find yourself searching for the plugs considering that the manufactures wonâ€™t give you a place to store them.
i-FlashDriveâ€™s performance is poor,keep in mind that itâ€™s a 170$ storage device. With the price of 10.62$ per GB, the writing (4.6 Mb/s) and reading(32.1 Mb/s) speed arenâ€™t enough. Itâ€™s true that is a 2.0 connection, and i donâ€™t know about you, but Iâ€™m not going to spend this amount of money for a USB stick with less then poor performances.
In conclusion, even though it fills in a gap between smartphones, tablets and PCs i canâ€™t say this device should be on your wish list simply because the price and the specifications are not proportional.
