Not sure how a manufacturer refurbishes a flash drive.

Actual test indicates an average read speed of 91 MB/s and write speed of 74 MB/s

One possible downside is a 90 day only warranty.

Flash Voyager Slider X1 is a compact USB 3.0 drive with bold styling and performance to match its looks. It has a smart design, with a USB connector that retracts for protection when you're not using it. A blue activity LED tells you at a glance if it's transferring data. It's also universally compatible with Windows, Mac OS X and even Linux, with no driver necessary. It supports high-speed USB 3.0 transfers along with full USB 2.0 compatibility, so you can use it with virtually any desktop or notebook.

Key features- Convenient and compact size
- Capless design
- Blue activity LED
- High-speed USB 3.0 performance with USB 2.0 compatibility

This product is compatible with ALL windows platforms.

I'd be tempted if these were at least double the read/write speeds.

I doubt that you will find a 128Gb flash drive with write speeds around 150MB/s for twice the price.

For £30 + P/P you can get a SanDisk Extreme Go 128GB from CeX with a 2 year warranty:
Read Speed up to 200 MB/s
Write Speed up to 150 MB/s

Thanks.

It seems to fall short of it's claims though.

A site that doesn't even grasp the difference between USB 3.0 and 3.1 is not one I'd rely on for a nuanced review.
Note: The Sandisk is a 3.1 gen 1 device which means USB 3.0 in effect.
I have the 128GB version and it manages to hit the rated speeds just fine.

But surely the test results would still be valid.

This site also carries out what seems to be a decent sent of tests and whilst read speeds are impressive, write are nowhere near the claims.

Glad it works well for you though.
I was going to buy & post this earlier until I read the user-reviews on Newegg: m.newegg.com/pro…756

If they don't even know what they are plugging it into I just ignore this review especially when they said this:

"To test the speeds, we transferred 6GB of data with a USB 3.0 port and did not get the desired results. While the write speed came out to be a maximum of 95MBps the read speed and a maximum of 80MBps.
The speed results showed marked improvement in the USB 3.1 port, however, since most PCs come with a USB 3.0 port, this could be the maximum expected speed from the SanDisk Extreme Go."

The Sandisk is a USB 3.0/USB 3.1 Gen 1 device so their remarks only show their ignorance and how variable USB performance can be.
Sounds as if they were testing it in a sub-par system so best to ignore it.

You seem a little desperate to undermine a valid alternative by relying on a review made by rank amateurs.
>Not sure how a manufacturer refurbishes a flash drive.

Usually means that they went out and the packaging was damaged so returned before they were put on the shop floor, , or they were returned under a shops XX day guarantee, (like Argos 30 day refund policy) becasue someone changed there mind.
.
They cant be sold as new because they are not new, but the haven't had much (and in some cases any) use. Its not worth the cost of putting them in original packaging so they are normally sold bare, or in plain white boxes

I am simply showing stats provided by others that you are simply ignoring without providing any real rationale to back up your statements.

How about firing up Crystaldiskmark yourself to demonstrate just how well they work for you.

At least the other sites demonstrated something and provided results.

Show me facts, rather than speculation and I'd happily follow your suggestion.

After all, myself and many others can only be guided by the information out there.

You are an actual user that has the ability to provide some facts and persuade us of a better deal.

So basically as new as you would hope for then.

I already made it clear that they don't even understand the difference between USB 3.0, 3.1 Gen 1 and 3.1 Gen 2 which is why their analysis is totally wrong and brings into question the whole basis of their testing.
Even ignoring the figures their review is very misleading and factually incorrect.
I wouldn't trust it at all but if you feel that it's worthy of taking seriously keep in mind that you are spreading ignorance which I already highlighted above.
If you don't grasp this then so be it.

No, you have only offered partial thinkings that don't; stand up well enough.

Just post some of your own results using something like Crystaldiskmark and clear all doubt.

Only takes a couple of minutes and could be of great use to many,

If you can't grasp the basics of their flaws then I will leave it at that.
Just been copying to my Sandisk and it peaks at around 200MBs writes but not sustained.
I only test real world usage not benchmarks unless I have a good reason to and i don't here.
If you are that interested go and find other reviews. Have fun.
