    Default Jetflash 64 GB V20 USB Flash Drive

    What did you think what is the max size you would get in a flash drive? 4GB, 8GB, 16GB? Well there is a Jetflash V20 flash drive which is 64GB, yes that's right 64GB. So put all the data you want in it and keep it safe, no need for extra hard drives when you can have a 64GB flash drive that can store all your data and that too portable.

    In 1985, Bill Gates released the MS-DOS for IBM PC-XT that operated with 640 KB memory and said that "640 KB should be enough for anybody".

    Look what has happened since then.

    I personally think, for a pen drive, 4~8 GB is sufficient and you should go for pocket disks for high capacity.

    flash drives = good for rough use (speed is lower)
    portable HDD = cheaper,good life & performance, but have to be handled properly

    Flash memory has been named so for a good reason ....... It allows you (theoretically) unlimited Write/Erase/Write cycles ....... It also has its downsides , Its memory longevity is among the lowest among non-volatile storage devices ... Data does nt last long on flash memories .... They are great for short term storage especially when portability is a priority ..... But for long term storage its always Discs and Drives

    quite contradictory statements!flash drives don't have unlimited write/read cycles & in fact no drive does.unlimited is a word never to be used in relation with any electronic device.

    Theres a good reason i used the word "Theoretical" in braces

    i dont quiet understand what is so contradictory in the highlighted statements .

    1. It has (Theoretically) unlimited write/erase/write cycles . [practically ofcourse it has a limit which is known only approximately , around 100,000 cycles i believe ]

    2. data does nt last long inside a flash memory

    Transcend Flash drives have a lifetime warranty . This is what i would call as "theoretically unlimited" warranty .

    totally true shadow...
    as far as i know, small backup hard drives are available from WD with 1 TB storage (other brands as well) for about 10-12K bucks. These are the type of drives to be used for backup purposes. I never trust pen drives with long term backup.

    You get 1TB for 6k i believe ?

    j4x and Ramesh know the accurate price quote

    @shadowcon,"practically" should be the word to be used for what you meant to say.theoratically always refers to pure logic.

    Rs.12000 1TB drives from WD are actually the normal 1TB drives enclosed in a stylish case with all types of options like 1 touch backup & that's why the price.

    .
    actually I can see how both shadow and whitestar think, from each
    of their perspectives they are right. I can see both. It's a matter of language.

    You got it all wrong . Now your arguments have become purely defensive .

    New techs are always first invented on paper (or computer simulations) .It so happens that sometimes the physical model exhibits unexpected characteristics that differed from the theoretical simulation/prototype .


    As an example

    As you know flash memory is a non-volatile storage device . It stores informaton through charges on many transistors .


    Theoretically the lifetime of this charge is almost unlimited . But practically it was found that the charge wore off after a certain period . Write/Erase/Write cycles also had an affect on the lifetime of this charge . They have found ways of getting over this problem and as usual something new always crop up
    So practically here means physically and not on paper

    "Practically Transcend drives have a lifetime warranty" conveys the wrong meaning

    This is tech lingo not English Literature

    Hope my explanation was good enough .

    there is no such thing as almost unlimited.it is either unlimited or not.

    of course it conveys wrong meaning but then i never said anything about using "practically" in this sentence.i was objecting to your use of the "theoratically unlimited cycles" in your 1st post which even factually is incorrect.where did you exactly find out that theoratically it is unlimited because whatever i read about this this is not infinite but ~2 million cycles?also it is common sense in science that there is no such thing as unlimited because in physics there is no perfect insulating material,no perfect conducting material etc.there is always some loss involved even if it is negligible but still it won't give the result of any such equation as unlimited because that would mean 100% efficiency in circuits which is not possible using any material.THIS IS TECH LINGO & YOURS IS JUGGLING OF WORDS.

    anyway i am done with this debate.i can see there is no point further arguing on this.still i was left disappointed by you as i thought you are one of the persons here who actually think rationally.

    ^^ Arey bhai relax. No need to fight over the difference between 2,000,000 and infinity. I think we all get the point.......

    Btw, by theoretically, i think he meant in Ideal, text book conditions, in which u assume perfect insulation is possible.

    Coming back to topic: 64 GB flash drive will be costly. These flash drives have a tendency to fail (USB power surge being the main reason). So if the drive fails, it is hole in the pocket as well as valuable data lost.

    So in my opinion, it is better to let the technology stabilize and/or prices to dip before investing.
