Lexar JumpDrive Lightning full review

The Lexar JumpDrive Lightning is a sleek and stylish USB flash drive, with a shiny stainless steel casing and flashing blue LED that indicates when the drive is in use.

While the Lexar JumpDrive Lightning benefits from the same Secure II software as the Lexar JumpDrive Secure II Plus, it's also designed for those that want to open a number of different files on PCs that don't have the necessary applications installed.

Power to Go software is preinstalled on the Lexar JumpDrive Lightning and will run Windows Applications from any PC.

The USB 2.0 Lexar JumpDrive Lightning is compatible with Windows Vista, XP and Mac OS X, and it came top in our recent flash memory drive tests for average read and write speeds. The 4GB Lexar JumpDrive Lightning achieved a read speed of 33.44 megabytes per second (MBps) and a write speed of 21.38MBps.
