I don't mean to doubt you but 190 mb/sec write speeds. Really. Are there any real life reviews showing this


If only there was some place where you could search for practically all modern human information at a click of a button...

why do they list read speeds....its pretty much irrelevant without telling you the write speed....I therefore assume that its not great...good price for a decent capacity stick though...if its writing at about 60-70MB/sec then its good...but lots of similar items with that write capacity are available...I bought a few Voyager GT ones a year or so back for similar money and their write performance is fantastic
#2
bought it last time on offer. brilliant super fast drive.
#3
The write speeds on these are among the fastest available - up to 190MB/s write, the read is officially listed as up to 245MB/s. Quite annoyed as I just got a 32Gb one of these for not much less than £24.99

I have one of these USB drives and the speeds I get are Read 264MB/s and Write176MB/s, done with Crystal Disk Mark.

Oh, and I paid £27.72 from Amazon about 3 months ago

So the price now is a good one. Hot from me

very clever....yes I know this...but there are so many dodgy reviews out there that are paid for by the product makers....Im sure you don't trust every review you read.

Was thinking more of someone out there that has this and can confirm what sort of speeds they have seen. I personally have some Corsair ones which write at around 70 mb/s and that is the best Ive ever seen so I was hoping for some real world examples
#10
I have 32gb one and it writes 5gb mkv files at around 100mb/s
#11
bought one about 2 weeks ago and since have got work colleague to buy another 3. writing 16 gig of video files took about 4 mins, benchmarked at write speed of 190 mbps but non sequential files about 60-70meg. much faster than any drives i have used. benchmarked at 25mbps on a usb 2 drive. putting that into perspective the hard drive on the computer I benchmarked on wrote at about 80 mbps.

I have given consideration to chucking windows on it and then i can carry my pc around with me.
#12
Want, want, want.
#13
to be honest if you are using a traditional hard drive you are not going to get awesome mega number1 super speeds when transferring files to this drive. you will need an SSD hard drive to max out the speeds.

Hot for the price and size as i paid this much for a 32GB one a few months ago.
#14
I have 2 of the 32GB ones and they are indeed the fastest USB3 sticks that I have ever owned and by some margin.

We use a lot of thumb drives where I work and these were selected due to them being easily the fastest. I paid about £27 each for my ones so this is a bargain.

don't know about 'real life' but here are some benchmarked results:
http://usbflashspeed.com/device/56601
I *think* it's the same device.
Of course your results will differ with write patterns (sequential vs random), block sizes, file systems, USB chipsets etc.. The results in the table which are 25W/30R are most likely people plugging the stick into USB2.

Ordered one of these last weekend I think it was when a previous deal for this price was posted. Sod's law and all that...a day after ordering MyMemory sent out a 10% discount code in their newsletter! Argh! :(
Don't forget Quidco available. £0.75 tracked and now confirmed on my order.

Bought one the last time they came in stock, tested using Black Magic on a Late 2013 rMBP 13" with 512GB stock SSD:

Observed WRITE:
Min: 187 MB/s
Max: 202 MB/s
Last test result: 198 MB/s

Observed READ:
Min: 253 MB/s
Max: 259 MB/s
Last Test result: 253.5

* I.E the highest and lowest readings I saw while Black Magic was running its tests. Tested several times. My machine and SSD almost triple this when tested with Black Magic, so this is the USB stick being saturated not bottle necked by my Machine/SSD. I'd upload screenshot but lazy to host it and link, as HUKD doesn't allow me to upload directly.

WRT other properties:

Good:

Aesthetics appear ok
Open/Retract mechanism feels premium (Have to depress button to retract, preventing accidental retraction while mounted. Nicely weighted/spring loaded, little force needed, etc).
As shown above fastest stick I've ever owned, by a big margin.
Very Good value for money given speed/capacity

Bad:

Plastic feels quite thin (not sure if it actually is), from first impression a chair rolling over it/heavy person stepping on it could break it quite easily
Feels hollow, very light, so while it looks ok, doesnt feel premium in the hand
The keyring holder has reasonably thick plastic, but given above concerns about plastic, unsure how durable it would be on a bunch of keys that are thrown around.

Overall for the price/performance/capacity there aren't any alternatives I know off. Worst case if the case breaks I can jimmy it into an old Porsche Metal USB housing (really nice metal housing, with leather strap to hold lid and keyring, but its only 512mb :/).

It's a pretty famous flash drive. I haven't seen any reviews that quote sequential write less than 170mb/s

Mine regularly crosses 200 MB/s while running the test, but the overall result is generally in the mid 190's. Write hits 260 MB/s also, but again test result is generally around the mid 250's. In any case I'm more then happy with it.

From my ssd drive speed is insane quick about 260-320 mb/s really good flash drive!!!

It depends on the laptop, if it has an Expresscard slot you can get something like this:

They increased the price to £26.99 when the code was activated, so you didn't lose out too much, £24.29 after discount.

How naughty of them! oO Noticed MemoryBits do that too (sneakily increase the price of products) whilst running say a 10% discount promo! Got to say don't like to see organisations trying to take consumers as mugs!
