Review: Lexar S23 Jumpdrive Reviewed by: vroom Provided by: Lexar Manufactured: in China

Storage technology is moving forward at very fast rate, not only we are able to have more speed and more capacity, but we also get smaller size, and at a lower price. Lexar is doing all of that, and here at Myce I was fortunate to review the Lexar Triton Jumpdrive, a flash drive that for me is still the best drive that you can buy. Okay, it might not be the fastest drive on the market, but is still one of the fastest flash drives and it has outstanding build quality.

Now I am taking a closer look at the S23 Jumpdrive, and this time Lexar is providing a more affordable USB3 flash drive, that not only continues to have very good performance, of up to 100MB/Sec read and 55MB/Sec write, but also continues to have a very stylish look. The Lexar S23 Jumpdrive comes in four colours - an 8GB in orange, a 16GB in teal, a 32Gb in green and a 64GB in purple. All models are covered by a three year Warranty.
