Looking at Transcend JetFlashs, it’s noticeable there’s not only a vast line of models but also some unique extra features.
The most obvious is the JetFlash elite software which enhances usability and lends its name to the Transcend flash drives. The software can be installed in one step and offers many interesting options reminiscent of SanDisk’s U3.
JetFlash elite features:
PC-Lock: Block access to your computer when away
(unplug JetFlash drive to lock, plug back in to unlock)
Secret-Zip: Compress and/or password protect saved files with AES Encryption
DataBackup: Backup, restore and synchronize important data. Instantly update existing backups.
AutoLogin: Automatically log in to websites where you have an account
Favorites:Save your favorite websites and browse them with no trace
Email: Securely receive, store and send emails
Boot-up function (prevalent in older editions):
Use your JetFlash to boot-up Windows
V1.0 upgradable to V2.0
Another great enhancement for Transcend flash drives is the online recovery tool.
Whenever your JetFlash drive gives you trouble or just doesn’t work anymore you can try to repair it by accessing the recovery program on Transcend’s website. And that’s 24/7. If that’s not service, what is?
Last but not least there’s eSobi.
eSobi allows you to streamline information, manage web news and improve internet searching. This application also needs to be installed first and isn’t mandatory.
If you ask me, it’s pretty clear that Transcend leads the pack in terms of flash drive enhancements and additional functionality. And we’re not just talking superfluous fancy here. Either way, ultimately it’s up to the user to make use of these options and that’s what it’s all about: consumer choices.
Without further ado, let us get an overview of Transcend JetFlash drives.
