128 GB USB Flash Drives
128 GB USB flash drives are the perfect device for storing all of your documents, pictures, movies and music files in a secure and portable manner. They are designed to plug easily into the USB port of a PC or Mac and are often less than two-inches long. Most come with caps that protect the USB connector and are enclosed in plastic whilst some come with an LED that will turn on when plugged into a computer.
Many 128 GB USB flash drives come with pre-installed encryption security that is designed to protect the files held within the device. Usually, this security is a simple password, but some modern USB flash drives come with fingerprint recognition scanners. It is recommended that you buy a USB flash drive with at least some level of security if you are planning on storing sensitive or personal files on it. As they are very small in size, they can be very easy to lose.
Most USB flash drives are encased in plastic. This means that they can break rather easily. If you want to ensure your flash drive remains in-tact for as long as possible, it is recommended that you buy a device that is encased in anodised aluminium or an equivalent metal coating. Internal durability is, of course, very important for the device to function properly, so it is important that the drive you buy is fitted with a NAND memory chip.
If you are planning on using your storage device on a daily basis, having a fast transfer speed is crucial. Many inexpensive USB flash drives only transfer data at 1 MB per second, meaning bigger files can take a long time to move between devices. Drives that are compatible with USB 3.0 will allow you to transfer data at up to 25 MB per second and can be used with USB 2.0 devices too.
