    Transcend JetDrive Lite 360 reviews

    256GB JetDrive Lite 360 Flash Expansion Card is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional, no real issues. The device works as sold. It's a bit of a pain in the but to put it in and remove it, but that's kind of the idea. The read/write speed essentially put it back into the dark ages of hard disk speeds. Access times are a bit slower than a HD in my opinion, but sequential writes/reads are about HD speed. If you are spoiled with the speeds of your SSD drive the speeds will be a let down, but the unit works well, is reliable, and I was able to at least move some stuff off of my SSD drive to open space where I needed the faster speed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful gizmo! I've long been frustrated by the 250G of memory my laptop has. With this tiny card I've doubled its memory. I keep my 'library' of photos, writings, etc on the card and can use the laptop memory for current projects. I do backup elsewhere. We all should -- just in case. Once installed (just stick it in the slot) it barely interrupts the edge of my laptop. It ejects as easily as any thumb drive if I want to remove it. Note that the chip is specific to certain computers. I can't just go stick it in my desktop to move data.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice simple storage upgrade I purchased the JetDrive as a simple, relatively inexpensive way to add local storage to my Retina MacBook Pro. Build quality seems fine, and the card only protrudes from the side of the laptop very slightly - not nearly enough to be in the way or to need to remove for transport. It's important to keep in mind that the speed or this (or any) SD card is not going to be even close to that the internal storage in modern Macs. It is plenty fast enough for storing data that doesn't change frequently (music library, download folder, maybe photo library file, things of that nature) but you'll likely be disappointed if you're planning to install software to it. That's not to say this is a bad product (it isn't) but just be aware of the limits of SD storage.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfortunately it didn't work for me After less than a week using it, the drive suddenly switched to only readable during a copy operation. I couldn't change the permissions to write again, so I had to buy an external hard drive to be able to backup the content of the jetdrive. I haven't been able to format the drive even using the Disk Utility.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good value given performance & capacity This card replaces smaller Transcend unit that I used in my MBPr (late 2013) laptop. It fits perfectly into the card slot on the side and protrudes may a millimeter or so. I don't bother worrying about it falling out or catching on something. Speed is fine...not the fastest, but good enough. Not really that good for file transfers to other computers due to custom sizing for the MBPr slot, but the little USB card reader that was part of BHPhoto deal makes that a moot issue. Very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but Big! I have a 500GB Mac Book Pro and ended extra storage space for... games. I have moved all of my games to the JetDrive and performance while gaming is excellent - no noticeable change from running on the internal SSD vs the Jet Drive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well This flash drive fits into the case and you do not know it is there but it added the storage I needed. I keep photos on it and use a program called Lightroom to access them and cannot tell a difference in speed between this little drive or the built in SSD drive in the MacBook Pro 2013. Good purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Life & Money Saver The option of upgrading my MacBook Pro SSD drive was just too steep. So this handy card was a great find. While it wish it was a tad faster, it's a peach. A must have when in need of memory with less cash!
