At one time, it was believed that the 1.44 megabytes of data that a floppy drive held was more than enough. Now we realize that this is not the case. Files keep on getting larger and there's no sign of that slowing down. This has given rise to the need for larger and larger capacity storage devices such as flash drives. Today, the largest flash drive available at larger retailers is 64 GB. Patriot has sent us their crack at making a supurb 64 GB flash drive. Will it compare to other makers' efforts in the field?
A plus for many people when it comes to flash drives is that they are much smaller than portable hard drives. Many times they only need a storage device on the fly. Portable hard drives are just too bulky to carry around all the time. Then comes the argument of space, but 64 GB this is no longer a issue.
One drawback that should seem obvious is its sheer storage space, and how it manages it. Generally, larger hard drives take longer to read and write information. Can these same concepts apply to a flash drive?
