Are you looking to give someone a new flash drive for the holiday season? We’ve reviewed plenty of them and picked out a few. I’ve picked the best one in each category, so enjoy:
Backup Flash Drive: SanDisk Ultra Backup
The SanDisk Ultra Backup is a nifty little flash drive that lets you backup your documents with a click of a button. It’s a little more expensive than the average flash drive, but it offers the convince of creating a second copy of your files. Without the hassle of having to install any software, the backup tool runs right off the Flash Drive’s on-board memory, making copies of files that you select.
Ultra-Portable Flash Drive: Super Talent Pico
The Super Talent Pico is still probably one of the World’s Smallest Flash Drives. It’s thin enough to slip into a wallet or hang on a key chain without having to worry about bulkiness. It’s waterproof too. The unit we reviewed last year was 8GB, but it’s also available in up to 32GB capacities today.
Secure Flash Drive: IronKey S200
The IronKey is probably the most secure flash drive on the market. It has high grade hardware and software encryption to keep eyes off your data. If the IronKey gets lost or falls into the wrong hands, there’s nothing to worry about. Without an incorrect password nothing use accessible. In fact, the flash drive self-destructs with a few consecutive incorrect password attempts. It’s pricey and probably unnecessary for many, but it’s a damn good flash drive.
Standard Flash Drive: Sandisk Cruzer
The SanDisk Cruzer doesn’t have any of the bells or whistles the other flash drives do, but it’s reliable and affordable. It’s one of the most popular flash drives on the market and you’ve probably seen these all over the place. It’s available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities. It’s simply works.
