Transcend JetFlash 930C flash drive has both USB-A and USB-C connectors
USB flash drives may not be as popular as they were years ago, but they still have their place. For instance, even though I save most of my data to the cloud nowadays, I still depend on flash drives for installing operating systems, such as Windows 10, Ubuntu, Manjaro, and more.
The problem with traditional USB flash drives, however, is many new computers no longer have USB-A ports. And so, they require the use of dongles or adapters. Thankfully, companies are also making USB Type-C flash drives. Even better, today, Transcend unveils a flash drive that has both USB-A and USB-C connectors. Called "JetFlash 930C," it should work with pretty much any computer.
"JetFlash 930C is designed with two connectors - USB Type-A and USB Type-C. Users can seamlessly transfer and share files among desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. For content creators, it allows users to carry creativity with them wherever they go. For gamers, spacious storage space and high speeds leave players free to battle for glory," says Transcend.
The company further says, "Embedded with the USB 3.2 Gen 1 interface, JetFlash 930C can reach up to 420MB/s and 400MB/s read/write speeds, respectively. Coming in high capacities of up to 512GB means room for a large amount of multimedia and gaming files. Its 3D NAND flash memory delivers ultra-high endurance -- 10 times the lifespan of a regular USB. The aluminum metallic housing brings extra protection to stored data, while the sleek golden finish gives a touch of class."
