Kioxia USB Flash Drive

Video files are often very big, and while they can of course be moved around by Wi-Fi it is often easier to have them on removable storage, a USB drive is still quite large but these days a USB stick can be very small even to being able to attach onto a keyring. If you do then it’s important as in this case that it is made of metal as keys can damage plastic.

Here I am telling you about a 128GB storage stick that is only 4cm long a tad over 1cm wide and .4cm wide.

This latest offering from Kioxia is the ideal way to move around with video, audio and photos.

128GB is actually 116GB this started out years ago when such devices were tiny in volume by comparison and there was a debate as to the way to measure them, the differential was not worth bothering about but when things got bigger in capacity and smaller in measurements things began to seem like you were being short changed but once a measure was decided upon it cannot be changed.

To be able to move large files will often require them to be physically transferred and USB is the method.

A few seconds for a few MB becomes much more as the files grow larger.

In theory USB3 is up to around 10 times quicker than USB2 but in practice it is probably only around half that. This unit is USB3.2 but it will still work somewhat slower on USB2 ports.

I take a couple of videos and two or three photos each week at a  local jazz gig I run as well as some .wav files for my own use. Once captured on my camera and audio device they may need to be edited and then stored and something like this Kioxia flash stick keeps them all in one place.

In January this year the files from four gigs came to 7.5GB which comes down to 7GB. This can be up to about an hour of video.

Sometimes the musicians like to see such files and it’s easy to send via Dropbox or We Transfer but of course if the request is made a while after the event you have to know where to find it and something like this stick is ideal. One stick for me anyway would hold around a year’ worth of such audio, photos, and video.

At the time of publication the Kioxia 128GB USB Flash Drive is available from Amazon for £10.01.
