Lexar JumpDrive Triton 32GB USB3 Review
USB3 now is close to becoming the default standard for PCs and it has almost replaced the older and much slower USB2. Many manufacturers are now focusing on making USB3 compatible products, and having a USB3 port in your PC is a huge advantage for the everyday user.
Lexar is a name that’s mainly known for their flash products for digital photography, however Lexar has a wider portfolio. One part of that portfolio is their USB flash drives and that’s what we will be looking at. You can find out more about Lexar and their products simply by visiting their website.
Lexar was kind enough to provide me with their top of the line Triton USB3 Jumpdrive. The Triton USB3 flash drive is their fastest drive, and can reach speeds of up to 150MB/Sec on read and write speeds, and it’s clear that this drive is aimed not only at the enthusiast but also at users that want to have the maximum transfer rates. Let’s not spent any more time and we start this review by looking first at the package.
Package & drive Specifications
Let’s start by taking a closer look at the package, and the drive.
Front and reverse side.
Left and right side.
As we can see the box shows off the drive, the metal chassis which you can see, along with all the major info that you will need, such as read and write speeds. Now let’s look at the drive.
The front of the drive has a mirror finish, in the middle there is a sliding button that pushes out the USB3 connector and on the end of the drive you can see the Lexar logo.
On the back we see the metal chassis and are also informed that it’s made in the U.S.A.
When you slide the to extract the USB3 connector, you also reveal the capacity of the drive. When you connect the drive you will see a white led on the triangle.
The Lexar JumpDrive Triton is a USB3 drive, it comes in three different capacities, starting from 16GB, moving to 32GB and reaching the maximum capacity of 64GB. The drive that was provided for testing was a 32GB drive. On first look the Lexar JumpDrive Triton has some amazing specifications. As we can see the 32GB drive is able to reach a read speed of 155MB/Sec and a write speed of 150MB/Sec, so now I need to verify those numbers.
So let’s start our tests and evaluate the performance of the drive.
