We reviewed the 32GB model.

The C20i was benchmarked on a current generation iMac with USB 3.0 ports. The performance results will be up shortly.
We also tried the USB 2.0 backward compatibility by inserting the JumpDrive C20i in an older Windows 7 laptop. As expected, it automatically installed as a mass storage device and all the backed up files were accessible by the laptop.
The Lexar® JumpDrive® C20i is the perfect companion for those that are always on the move. The ability to charge, act as external storage to your iPhone or iPad and USB storage for your PC makes this suitable for a wide range of people from frequent travellers to university students. The cord is a tad on the short side given its charging capabilities but frankly, it was the only negative we found with the device. Compared with other similar products in the market, we found the The Lexar® JumpDrive® C20i to be great value for money.
