Yeah, its backwards compatible.

Sooo tempted... wonder if this would be good enough to boot off.

I've been looking for a decent (read, fast) USB flash drive for a while and I hadn't come across this one yet, the JetFlash 600 gets good reviews and this one is rated quite highly although I couldn't find a proper review just marketing spiel. The fact that it's USB 3.0 is surely a bonus though probably more so for read speed to be honest, as is the case with a lot of these drives.

I've added a 5% voucher for MyMemory which brings the price down a little, I might just buy this on a whim as I can't see it being worse than its predecessor (won't eat my hat if proven wrong though!).

Is it a reputable brand? Tempted.

So tempted.
But I don't even need it.

Transcend is very good. I have a class6 16GB SD card 2 years ago still working perfectly beyond its class (class 10 was not yet introduced at that point of time)

Cannot comment about a usb flash drive though. Daily plug in and out of usb slot is a bit different from memory cards.

My Sandisk Cruzer is fabricated from plastic, and has been on my keys since August 2008

Still tempted by this though, a large capacity thumb drive with a decent write speed for once.

Scan has a SuperTalent version with 67MB/23MB Read/Write speeds for £22.78 which is just below the free postage threshold - Link

scan have a couple of supertalent usb3 sticks at reasonable cost with slightly higher claimed writes as well as 'a million' higher priced higher performance
(edit:lol agharta :))

for usb2 usual max is about 33read 27write (over my devices anyway) so i think this would just drop the read speed to 33 and keep its claimed write unless there is some sort of other speed loss by using usb2?

I've had one of those Super Talent drives before. I don't like the shape and the plastic thing at the end snapped off within days. Don't get me wrong - I currently have 2 x Super Talent Pico drives that are the best I've ever had, but I can't cope with the other design.

The ones I've posted to look sturdier than the Super Talent equivalent ones. Just need some USB3 ports now. There's a nice expresscard I've seen...

Yeah, its backwards compatible.

In which case the USB3 capability is just a gimmick, is it not? Correction: no, if you believe the read speed, that's more than USB2 can manage.

Well obviously when used with a USB2 port the speeds will be limited to that which it can provide so 30 – 35MB maximum regardless of the USB3 performance! Write speed shouldn’t be affected as it is under the limit.

The variations were caused by power mode switching on my laptop, high performance, balanced etcetera just out of curiosity on my part. Seems to live up to expectations, or at least what the manufacturer claims which is always a good thing (write speed wise, haven't got a USB 3.0 controller yet).

I can't quite make out from the pictures, has this got a hole for a keying or lanyard - is it the white dot at the end, or is that the LED?

not really ... op/s is a usb 3 and even the usb 2 speeds will be on par or even better than the non gt version of the corsair pen.

That’s not a fast drive and this will easily beat it with the added bonus of the extra read performance using a USB 3 port.

Also, so many of those corsair ones have crapped out it was worth repairing them and selling them as refurbs.

Seriously, a refurb pen drive? Something you rely on to store and transport data.

A friend at Uni has had two corsairs suddenly die on him, keep away.

Also: does anyone know about the lanyard/keying hole on the transcend ones, that I asked about earlier? Ta very.

I doubt any of them are repaired - "refurbished" just means customer returns. It is simply not economical in labour terms to diagnose faults and replace components on such a low-cost device.
