Our take on the Monster Digital Advanced On-the-go Flash Drive

Flash drives just got faster

You've just shot 30 archive-worthy, high-definition minutes of your child's first soccer game. Do you want to tap your fingers and wait while it loads into your computer? Of course not. Monster Digital's new Advanced On-the-go flash drives use the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 protocol for portable digital storage that's faster than ever. Retractable connectors allow you to switch from micro to Type A ports quickly and easily. Use Type A for connecting to compatible computers, stereos, and Smart TVs, or switch to the micro connector to plug into compatible smartphones or tablets. Now you can go from shooting to seeing to sharing in a "flash."

  • 8GB drive stores up to 80 minutes of HD video, 136 hours of MP3 music files, or more than 3,000 high-res photos

  • retractable Type A and micro USB connectors

I use this primarily in my car to play music through my stereo, but I can also use it with my phone (or any device with a micro USB port) to add to storage. USB 3.0 is incredibly fast. It looks nice, but feels a little too light.

Great USB 3.0 Drive

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I use this primarily in my car to play music through my stereo, but I can also use it with my phone (or any device with a micro USB port) to add to storage. USB 3.0 is incredibly fast. It looks nice, but feels a little too light.

Pros: Fast, easy to use, has Micro USB connector.

Cons: Little bit light compared to a Patriot USB Drive

Best 3.0 for the price

Mark from Fayetteville, Arkansas on 12/4/2014

Pros: Speed, features, and price

Cons: Absolutely none!

I use this item for music storage of HIREZ downloads. Works very good, no complaints.
