USB 3.0 Flash Drives as low as 17 cents per gig, today, 12/30/15 only

 


As part of the Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day for today (12/30/15), Amazon has two fantastic deals on Transcend JetFlash USB 3.0 Flash Drives (aka jump drives and thumb drives).  These drives got 4.4 out of 5 stars over 250 customer reviews.
As you probably know, USB 3.0 Flash Drives are much faster (about 10X) than USB 2.0 Flash Drives, and if you are buying drives for gaming, then you must use the USB 3.0 flash drives.

Features:
  • Unparalleled USB 3.0 data transfer performance (backwards compatible with USB 2.0)
  • Capless design with slide-out USB connector
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Exclusive Transcend Elite data management software
  • Easy Plug and Play installation
  • USB powered. No external power or battery needed
  • LED usage status indicator

What do I use flash drives for?
  • Travel:  this is my main use for portable drives. if I want to take my laptop with me on a plane, but also need a ton of files from my main computer, it takes me about 5 minutes to copy them on to a flash drive and put the drive on my key chain.  I can work with the files by just plugging them into my computer, and then bring home the updated versions the same way.  Flash drives were made for travel.
  • Backup:  I have a regular backup drive, but there are certain files (documents, pictures) I'd like to keep multiple safe copies of in different physical locations.  You never know when a disaster like Sandy or a fire or a burglary (all God forbid) may hit you.  We actually have some flash drives tucked away in our safe deposit vault.
  • Music storage:  music files like mp3s are huge and tend to eat up my computer, laptop, iPad and phone storage very quickly.  While I keep the majority in cloud storage, there are a few I like to keep offline, and those are on flash drives.
  • Photos:  ever empty an entire summer's worth of pictures from your iPhone to your PC?  There are a few you'll want to keep on there, but the rest should go into storage.  Also remember that those wedding pictures of your grandparents from the 1940s just aren't going to last forever; scan them into digital form and back them up them on a flash drive.  
  • Documents:  birth certificates, passports, marriage licenses, divorce papers, ketubahs, gets, citizenship papers, court records, even tax returns and receipts, financial records, etc. all should be backed up tucked away on a flash drive.  These are all things that are not easily replaceable.
