The latest addition to the Integral Titan range of flash drives is this 256 GB USB 3.0 model. With a metal casing and cap (make sure you don't lose it!) to protect the USB connector, this flash drive promises read speeds of 230 MBps and write speeds of 140 MBps.

Performances



Integral titan 256 page

And Integral keeps its promises with this USB flash drive! We measured data transfer speeds that were on par with the manufacturer's specs. The Titan even manages to reach read speeds of 250 MBps with big files, and write speeds of up to 113 MBps. That's a new record for read speeds among the drives we've tested. However, the Sandisk Extreme 64 GB memory stick is still slightly ahead on write speeds, at 140 MBps.

In other words, it'll take 36 seconds to copy a 4 GB file onto the drive or 16 seconds to copy it off again. Note, however, that to get data transfer speeds like this you'll need to use a computer with a USB 3.0 interface.

Data Encryption

Integral supplies data encryption software (AES 256 bits) with this USB memory stick. An application called SecureLock comes pre-loaded on the drive. Once launched, you simply have to choose a password (minimum six characters) then drag and drop files onto the USB key to encrypt them.
Too Bulky?
With so much onboard memory, Integral's flash drive has a fairly chunky casing. Measuring 77 x 26 x 8 mm, it can get in the way of other devices if you're using it in a row of USB ports that are quite close together (horizontally).

That won't be a problem if the USB ports are aligned vertically, however, as this Integral Titan memory stick is just 8 mm thick.

PROS

  • USB 3.0 interface
  • Fast data transfer speeds: 250 MBps read speed and 113 MBps write speed
  • Encryption software is practical and easy to use

CONS

  • Bulky casing: 77 x 26 x 8 mm
  • Expensive

CONCLUSION 5/5

Although the Integral Titan 256 GB USB 3.0 flash drive is very expensive, it does give you ultra-fast data transfer speeds, with 250 MBps in read mode and just over 110 MBps in write mode via a USB 3.0 connection. It also comes with simple and practical data encryption software.
