Mach Xtreme Technology MX-GX 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review


Since this reviewer started testing components there has been little change in the way we connect external storage devices. USB, primarily 2.0, has been the main connection method with some manufacturers dabbling with eSATA, Firewire and even LAN connectors with varying success.
