PhotoFast i-FlashDrive Max Review 2017

The PhotoFast i-FlashDrive Max is a storage device with two connectors: USB 3.0 and Lightning for Apple products. Having a Lightning connector doesn’t mean it won’t work with non-Apple devices, but if you don’t plan to use this flash drive with IOS devices, this flash drive probably isn’t meant for you.

This flash drive allows you to use it will all IOS devices, do data transfers, watch movies and play music, do backups and so much more. There are tons of features, and they all are fitted with a one very compact and slim looking flash drive.

If we compare PhotoFast i-FlashDrive Max with similar drives like SanDisk iXpand or Leef iBridge, then on paper it’s more superior in every aspect but is that true?

Performance and technical specifications

The PhotoFast i-FlashDrive Max is availably in two capacities: 64GB and 128GB. It has two connectors: Lightning and SuperSpeed USB 3.0. We tested it with a USB 3.0 connector and got decent results. Read speed reached 87MB/s and write speed hit 25MB/s. Overall speed is adequate, and we couldn’t want much more from this device, considering it has two connectors and its compact size. Another thing to keep in mind is that most competitors did far worse. You shouldn’t complain about the PhotoFast i-FlashDrive Max performance.
