Having a USB stick on hand is always useful, especially as a digital nomad. I’m always meeting people and finding myself needing to share large files or photos. I seem to always be collaborating with someone about something new idea as we mastermind on projects, or finding myself simply swapping photographs of our shared experiences.
I’m always carrying my keys with me, so I wanted something small that would fit on my keyring, blending in with the keys and was rugged enough to withstand being bashed around non stop. The USB 3.0, Titanium [amazon text=Silicon Power 64GB Flash Drive&asin=B00O4VAL32] steps up to that plate.
Made out of Titanium (if you hadn’t have guessed), the [amazon text=Silicon Power 64GB Flash Drive&asin=B00O4VAL32] has been capable of withstanding living on the same keyring as my door key and my scooter key. I can hear it rattling about as I drive so it’s definitely getting a lot of punishment.
The read speed is reasonable, peaking at 120MB/s but the write speed is 1/6th that, peaking at 17MB/s. In theory USB 3.0 can write to around 260 MB/s so that’s a bit poor really. The [amazon text=Silicon Power 64GB Flash Drive&asin=B00O4VAL32] does the job though, is reasonably priced at only $29.99, has massive capacity and is as tough as hell. Also it looks cool on my key ring.
