Transcend Announces 128GB Flash Drives

Transcend said on Wednesday that its JetFlash 760 and JetFlash 600 series flash drives now offer 128 GB models. The former drive sports a USB 3.0 connection for high transfer rates up to 80 MB/s while the latter JetFlash 600 drive provides USB 2.0 transfer speeds of up to 32 MB/s.

"Combining blazing fast data transfer speed with huge storage space, Transcend's high capacity flash drives are an excellent way to effectively transport, share, and backup a huge amount of data," the company said on Tuesday.

The JetFlash 760 model sports a brightly-colored sliding USB connector that not only protects the drive and its contents, but also ensures there is no cap to lose. Available in black, the drive measures 8.9-mm thick, 69.6-mm long and 20.9-mm wide, and weighs 12g.

The JetFlash 600 model is also in black and takes full advantage of advanced dual-channel technology that combines the bandwidth of two flash chips. Unlike the USB 3.0 model, this one comes with a cap and when attached, the stick measures 60.9-mm long. It also measures 8.5-mm thick and 19.3-mm wide, and weighs 8.5g.

"Additionally, Transcend USB flash drives offer a free download of the exclusive Transcend Elite data management software, which features intelligent backup scheduling, 256-bit AES file encryption, and much more," the company said.

The new 128 GB JetFlash 760 is available for a suggested price of US $199, while the 128 GB JetFlash 600 is available for US $179. Transcend also released a 64 GB version of the JetFlash 760 which is available for a suggested price of US $89.

All are backed by Transcend's Limited Lifetime Warranty, the company said.

    Make sure that 2TB+ drive has some heavy-duty shock absorption. I've trashed a hard drive dropping it less than 1/4 inch.

    I'd definitely buy this if the price was reasonable (100~110$ is the highest sum that I'll ever pay for any flash dongle, even if it's the top tier model). Transcend makes quite good flash dongles.
    I have two of their dongles, 16GB and 32GB, and they serve me absolutely fine for more than 4 years now, without any problems at all.

    I still have my first Transend 16 MegaByte Flash drive, and it still works.

    surprising as all heck, how even so called professional IT resellers still haven't adopted them, they think 128GB for $99 is too expensive, and not enough space. and then their head goes back into the sand.
