Transcend nabs seven 2017 Taiwan Excellence Awards

Things are looking pretty good for Transcend, as seven of the company’s products were recently honored with the 2017 Taiwan Excellence Awards.

The Taiwan Excellence Awards are issued by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) on behalf of Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs. Nominees are evaluated based on these five criteria: research and development, design, quality, marketing, and whether or not the product is made in Taiwan.

One of the seven products to win the 2017 Taiwan Excellence Award is the DrivePro 50 dashcam, which has a large aperture of f/1.8 for capturing clear visuals even at night. The DrivePro 50 also has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity so that users can easily download recordings onto their smartphone and tablet for sharing. In addition to a Taiwan Excellence Award, the DrivePro 50 was also given a 2016 Good Design Award by Japan.

Next, we have the DrivePro Body 52, a body camera designed to be used by law enforcement officers. It features a Sony Exmor image sensor, Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) video recording, a large aperture of f/1.8, a 130-degree wide-angle lens, and built-in Wi-Fi for livestreaming on mobile devices.

Interestingly, Transcend’s RDA2 Lightning card reader was also crowned a winner as well. The RDA2 has dedicated slots for SD and microSD cards, and when paired with its accompanying Smart Reader app, can be used for backing up data, formatting memory cards, encrypting files, compressing and decompressing files, saving audio recordings to memory cards, and provide quick access to cloud storage.

But of course, it was Transcend’s storage solutions that bagged home the most 2017 Taiwan Excellence Awards. The Lightning and USB 3.1 (Gen 1) connector-equipped JetDrive Go 300 and JetDrive Go 500 allow users to easily transfer files between iOS devices and PCs, while the JetFlash 850S USB 3.1 Type-C drive (with USB OTG technology) give users lightning-fast transfer speeds of up to 130MB/s.

Last but not least, there’s the StoreJet Cloud 210 – a personal cloud storage solution that offers up to 8TB of storage space. Thanks to its fast transfer speeds of up to 110MB/s, the StoreJet Cloud 210 can also be used for media streaming, file sharing, and for automatic data backups. The data stored within the StoreJet Cloud 210 is protected by RAID 1 data mirroring technology, so you shouldn’t have to worry about the integrity of its data.
