Effective Speed: Below average (35th percentile)

The JetFlash 760 is not particulary well built, it rattles when you shake it and the plastic feels cheap and hollow. In terms of performance the drive is just below average but it has a very rounded performance profile making it reasonably versatile. From a value perspective the JetFlash 760 is above average thanks to its very reasonable price. [Jun '12 USBFlashPro]

Packaging & Contents

The JetFlash 760 ships in a flat packed piece of cardboard with a small plastic shell housing the unit. There are perforations on the cardboard making it easy to open the box without scissors or a knife. The drive comes with a lifetime warranty which is clearly stated on the bottom right of the box. There are links to the Transcend website allowing you to register your warranty and download Transcends flash drive software bundle which includes a data recovery module. On the back of the box there is some general information relating to how much data you can fit on various capacities of flash drive.

Dimensions & Weight

The JetFlash 760 measures 7cm long, 2.1cm wide and 0.9cm high, these are average sizes for a flash drive. Weighing in at 12 grams the JetFlash 760 is amongst the lighter drives.

Build Quality

The JetFlash 760 has a permanently on green light inside shell which flashes when the drive is in operation. I usually prefer flash drives that have a retractable design but on the JetFlash the mechanism is very loose. The JetFlash is made particularly well, it rattles when you shake it and the plastic shell feels hollow and fragile.

Test System

The test rig was a high end Core-i7 workstation kitted out with a 256GB Solid State drive and 16GB of RAM. The system was designed to be overclocked to 5GHZ but for the benchmarks, only the stock frequencies of 1.6GHz idle, 3.4GHz active and 3.8GHz turbo boost were used.

CrystalDiskMark Speed Test[FAQ]

CrystalDiskMark is a free disk benchmarking utility that is very simple to use. It takes eight measurements: the read and write speeds in megabytes per second (MBps) for sequential, 512KB, random 4KB and 4KB parallel disk operations. There are more screenshots from this benchmark posted on the web than any other, probably due to its clean and simple display. There is further information, including instructions on how to benchmark your own drives, on the CrystalDiskMark wiki page.

CrystalDiskMark Score

The JetFlash 760 scored 80/26 MB/s in the sequential read/write tests. The sequential read speed is good but we would have liked to see a faster write speed. Overall the performance is slightly below average but there are no glaring weaknesses in any of the benchmark results making the JetFlash 760 far more versatile than most other flash drives.

ATTO Disk Benchmark[FAQ]

The Atto Disk Benchmark has probably been around for longer than any other disk benchmarking software, and you can tell from its dated interface! The utility was designed to measure regular disk drive performance but it's more than up to the task of measuring both USB flash drive and SSD speeds as well. The utility measures disk performance rates for various sizes of file and displays the results in a bar chart showing read and write speeds at each file size. The results are displayed in megabytes per second (MBps). There is further information, including instructions on how to benchmark your own drive, on the Atto wiki page.

ATTO Score

The ATTO results for the JetFlash 760 are almost exactly in line with the CrystalDiskMark scores and at 80/25 MB/s come in comfortably over Transcend's claimed read/write speeds of 70/20 MB/s.

AS SSD Real World Copy Speed[FAQ]

The AS SSD benchmarking program was recently developed specifically for benchmarking SSD's. The utility is able to take several measurements that are well suited to solid state drives. One of the tests, ISO copy, is also relevant to slower storage devices including flash drives. The ISO copy test places two large 500MB files in a folder on the drive and then times how long it takes to copy the folder to another location on the same drive. The result is reported in both MBps and time taken. It's a real-world test that gauges a drives ability to read and write at the same time. Drives that have a good balance between their read and write speed fare relatively well on this test. There is further information, including instructions on how to use it to benchmark your own drive, on the AS SSD wiki page.

Real World Copy Speed Score

This test shows that the JetFlash 760 would take 59.65 seconds to create a copy of a large 1GB video file. Generally flash drives complete this test at roughly half their sequential write rates. The JetFlash 760 performed relatively well in this test.
