Introduction:

We all pack around a ton of documents, media and files that we store on different devices. We tend to want to take this data with us and often our mobile devices run out of storage. Storage has come a long way and while the capacity has increased, thankfully the size of the storage device has gotten smaller. Thankfully in order to pack a few movies with you, you no longer need to bring the entire PC or a bulky external hard drive. Back even farther than that, we were cursed with the bulky, low capacity floppy disk. I remember using these back in elementary school to save and transfer files from one computer to another.

Flash memory located on a USB drive – as well as cloud storage has taken storage to the next level and make it a lot easier to travel with your data.

All this talk about storage helps kick off our review today. We recently received a 32GB USB 2.0 drive from Silicon Power. I was asked if I wanted to review it, and I quickly agreed as I wanted to add another nifty drive to my flash drive collection!

Features and Specifications:

There’s not a lot to a flash drive and we’ll keep this section short. The 32GB OTG Mobile USB 2.0 Flash Drive is just a small, silver drive that has a metal housing that simply stores your files. It doesn't have a cap to put over the main end, but it does have a plastic flips-up cap on the MicroUSB end to protect it. You can plug this end into your phone, tablet or even a smart watch that has a MicroUSB port. Silicon Power claims that it is waterproof and it should survive a washing thanks to the sealed memory chips on the PCB.
