The T-Force Spark is a great little, high-capacity flash drive. I like the fact the connector retracts into the body of the drive. This is a great feature for a flash drive as it helps to prevent damage to the USB connector. This also prevents the user from losing the cap to your drive and we all know this is a common occurrence. I’m generally not the biggest fan of RGB lighting. However, the lighting on the T-Force Spark does look good. But more importantly, it has a function. I like that TeamGroup utilized the RGB lighting in such a creative way to have it show you the capacity of the drive. The metal housing is another nice feature. The housing protects the drive far better than a plastic housing would.
Although the write speeds of the T-Force Spark were lower than advertised, the read speeds in most of the benchmarks were far above the 180 MB/s advertised speed. Overall, the performance wasn’t bad considering the read speeds are comparable to the average 7200 RPM hard drive. The best feature of the T-Force Spark for me is the capacity of the drive. There was a chart on the back of the packaging that states how much of the different kinds of media this drive can store, photos, videos, and music. The 128 GB T-Force Spark could store 32,000 4 MB songs. over 50,000 5megapixel images or 192 minutes of 720p video. So basically, a ton of media. I remember the days when a 128 GB SSD would cost over $100. But at the time of this review, you can pick up the T-Force Spark 128 GB RGB USB Flash Drive for only $27.99 on Newegg. That’s not a bad price at all for a 128 GB USB 3.2 Gen 1 drive. Overall we give the T-Force Spark 128 GB RGB flash drive a score of 8 out of 10.
