A Closer Look
Using the Jumpdrive
To use the Jumpdrive, all you have to do is plug it in and away you go. Windows automatically detects it and provides 59.6 GB of usable space.
Speed wise, the drive, being USB 3.0 is fast, with a Read speed of 232.4 MB/s and a Write speed of 194.8 MB.s
The drive has a sleek design with a metal alloy base and high-gloss mirror finish top. It also has a retractable connector with thumb slide which means you wont lost the cap.
The Jumpdrive P10 is very fast and works as expected. I tried it on both my PC and Mac and both worked equally as good.
The one thing I would point out though, and this is a common issue with high speed USB drives is that it does get rather hot, even after just a few minutes of use, so you may want to wait a moment or two before slipping it back in your pocket when you have used it.
Price wise, the costs are 16GB (£54.99), 32GB (£85.99), and 64GB (£154.99). So it’s not cheap, but you are getting USB 3.0 speeds.
If you need USB 3.0 speeds, and you have the money to spend, then you should take a look at the Lexar Jumpdrive P10 as it’s fast!
