Packaging

Just like every other USB drive Transcend packages, the 380G is in an individually sealed cardboard sheet. The front has a white background, and towards the top right section is where Transcend gives the enclosed size. In this case we have the 16GB. Just to the left of that, we have compatibility and key features listed showing the single device is compatible with smartphones and desktops featuring its full size USB and micro USB connection. Down below on the bottom right, we see a limited lifetime warranty.

    You say “Here we see that the 380G registered with a sequential write speed of 21.4MB/s and a read of 5.3MB/s.”, but according to the screenshot it’s 21.4 read and 5.3 write.
