Design
The Boost X25 is much like any other flash drive, except that it's housed in metal instead of plastic. It weighs only 30 grams and has an optional lanyard for easy carrying and storing in a pocket or purse.

During the data transfer process, the LED located at the end of the Boost X25 device will light up. Yes, this device is identical in appearance to other USB flash drives on the market.

The Boost X25 device has an LED that will light up during the data transfer process. The general layout of this device is the same as that of other USB flash drives.

Performance
The Boost X25 uses the standard USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A interface. This is great since a majority of laptops have the standard Type-A connector, but it would have been better if there was a version with the type-C port, as it is now standard on today's laptops.

The Boost X25 flash drive is available in sizes of up to 1TB, however, the model we tested has a 500GB capacity, which is still massive. This storage is more than sufficient for a flash drive, but if you need a larger one, the 1TB option is also available.

Dynabook promises sequential read and writes speeds of up to 600 and 500 MB/s, respectively. We tested its speed on an Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming laptop with a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port using CrystalDiskMark 8.0.4 software.

Cons
It's easy to misplace
No security feature

Verdict
Dynabook Boost X25 flash drive offers a large storage capacity that is comparable with an external HDD or SSD. It's a great portable storage device that you can carry anywhere and easily slip into your pocket or bag. The downside is it lacks any protection or encryption to safeguard its contents, just make sure not to misplace this flash drive.
