We couldn't decide which feature of the Transcend JetFlash V90 classic impressed us more: its fold-up design and tiny dimensions, or its stylish silver casing.

The USB 2.0 Transcend JetFlash V90 classic is designed to resist shock and vibration, and it certainly offered the same speeds after we dropped
it a few times.

Compatible with Windows 98/2000/XP/Vista, Mac OS 9.0 and later and Linux Kernel 2.4.2 or later, the Transcend JetFlash V90 classic has a read speed of 19.5 megabytes per second (MBps) and a write speed of 9.6MBps – not startlingly quick, but the best results among the cheaper drives we've tested recently.

The Transcend JetFlash V90 classic comes with JetFlash Elite data-management software, which allowed us to access a number of extra functions. These include automatic website login, a PC lock, encrypted file compression and backup.
