Samsung USB 3.1 Type-C Flash Drive
Our take on the Samsung USB 3.1 Type-C Flash Drive by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
Super-speedy USB 3.1
USB 2.0 and 3.0 have been around for a while, so what makes USB 3.1 so much better? Pure, blazing speed. This Samsung drive transfers data at up to up to 150MB/s. That's roughly 4GB of video in just 32 seconds.
If the speed isn't enough to thrill you, there's a practical edge to this drive, too. The USB Type-C connector plugs in no matter which way you turn it. As someone who's had to fumble to find the right orientation for a Type-A or Type-B connector, that pleases me.
Just make sure your device has a Type-C port, or it won't matter which way you turn it.

- Cap (installed)
Very nice tiny gadget. I bought it for my Google Pixel 2 Laptop/Tablet. I would not not say it transfer Files very fast. But for my needs 30/40MB speed is good enough. I would buy it again.
