Storage technology today advances at a rapid rate, with both internal and external drives reaching faster and faster read and write speeds. While internal storage products can take advantage of the quicker speeds with the equally fast M.2 or PCIe bus systems, external storage lags in speed due to the common connections (such as USB 3.0) not supporting the faster speeds that newer storage tech are capable of reaching. But with the spread of devices supporting USB Type-C, manufacturers such as Transcend are introducing USB Type-C external storage products. Transcend’s new product line include USB flash drives, external hard drives, and card readers.

Equipped with the latest USB 3.1 Type-C connector with USB OTG (On-The-Go) technology, Transcend’s JetFlash 850S flash drive delivers transfer speeds of up to 130MB/s. The JetDrive 850S also features an ergonomic curved grip and a lightweight design.
