Despite the convenience of cloud storage, there are times when you need USBs to transfer data and Sony’s new fast speed 3.1 Gen 1 flash drives are meant to do just that while also being durable. The three variants, USM-BA2, USM-CA2 and USM-MX3, come in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.

The new USBs by Sony have a metallic finish and are meant to help in ‘effective workflow’.
According to the company, the flash drives have been built to have easy accessibility in tight spaces and not block off adjacent ports. The USM-MX3, specifically, is smaller than its two counterparts with a matte finish and plastic grip.
The USM-BA2 and USM-CA2, unlike the USM-MX3, are built to be as on-the-go as possible. Featuring the dual port bridge, the former is compatible with Micro USB and USB Type-A ports while the latter can switch between USB Type-C and Type-A ports.
