Both Transcend drives some in sleek packaging, visible from the front, with the main features and specifications noted.
Out of the package, both drives are finished in a smooth black plastic, but there are a few notable differences. First, the 780 is longer than the 700 by just a bit, despite the fact both models are 64GB capacity.
Both JetFlash models are capped designs, to take a bit of care not to lose the cap. They click on easily and are quite sturdy. Not terribly complicated.
View up close, the JetFlash 700 is the smaller drive, designed in a traditional glossy black finish, and comes with a small opening on the end for a lanyard to be attached, or perhaps directly onto a key ring.
The JetFlash 780 is a bit more interesting design, as it has a black checkerboard finish along the sides and chrome-like accents along the edges that indicate the USB 3.0 specification, capacity, and model number. The 780 also has a small hole in the rear corner for a lanyard or keychain attachment.
In terms of design and functionality, the JetFlash drives aren’t really groundbreaking or unique. They’re small and compact, and quite sleek, so points for that. But the real test of a drive is how fast it can perform, so let’s run some tests.
