Dual USB Drive Type-C

3 This 32GB flash drive is both fu­ture-proofed and back­wards com­pat­i­ble. It has two USB 3.0 con­nec­tors – a Type A for the many ex­ist­ing Macs, and a Type C for the 2015 MacBook and any fu­ture mod­els that have that tiny con­nec­tor. The drive’s mean av­er­age se­quen­tial trans­fer rates of 65.7MB/sec (read­ing) and 53.4MB/sec (writ­ing) are roughly as quick as a portable USB 2.0 hard drive – ac­cept­able but not speedy. Nor is it el­e­gant-look­ing, but it is prac­ti­cal if you have or are plan­ning a near-fu­ture pur­chase of a MacBook with USB‑C. Alan Stone­bridge A sen­si­ble in­vest­ment if you need to shut­tle files be­tween the new MacBook and an older Mac, but it’s not a looker – and it’s pricey.
