nice one mate.

If these performance figures are right, this is very hot!

Actually, I don't think it is possible to achieve a read speed of much over 20MB/s via USB 2.0.

Grrrr I wish I had brought this -__- such a good speed and size.

It's definitely possible. See the Corsair Flash Voyager and GT variant or if you want cheaper, the ByteStor Dataferry, just to name a few.

Amendment for the sake of clarity:

THE ONES I MENTIONED ARE 16GB DRIVES, I USED THE WORD "CHEAPER" IN CONTEXT TO THE DRIVES I STATED. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS TRANSCEND DEAL

which one is cheaper and where

which one is cheaper and where


The ByteStor Dataferry 16GB (Pink one here as well) is the cheapest of them all at £15.99 from Amazon, which has decent speeds of an average of about 25MB/s read and 15MB/s write that I've seen.

The Corsair Flash Voyager GT 16GB can be had for £21.99 from MyMemory - you'll get roughly 29-30MB/s read, about 17MB/s write.

There's also the non GT version of the Corsair Flash Voyager 16GB for £19.99 from 7dayshop - according to the results on this site, it does around 30.5MB/s sequential read and 7.5MB/s sequential write, formatted in NTFS. Some of the comments on that deal say the stick they received failed or was slow so be wary of that.

All these are 16GB so are going to be cheaper than the Transcend, but they all do over 20MB/s read on USB 2.0. As mentioned above, there are a fair few others that do too like the SanDisk Extreme Cruzer Contour 16GB or the Patriot Xporter XT 16GB, but these are high end and much more expensive.

Not the point Crackerbear, 16gb and 32gb sticks have a larger difference in price as you jump up. Prices generally dont stay in line.

Actually, USB 2.0 running in High-speed mode will be over the maximum this drive will perform at.

Source A:
The theoretical maximum data rate in USB 2.0 is 480 Mbit/s (60 MB/s) per controller and is shared amongst all attached device

Source B:
Actual data throughput is usually much less than the maximum advertised USB specification and is a function of many variables, including overhead. Actual throughput in practice is typically up to 35 - 40MB/sec for USB 2.0

heat added.
just grabbed one..

I know this... but I wasn't comparing the drives nor the prices, which is why I specifically quoted:

As andyken was saying USB 2.0 drives don't go much faster than 20MB/s.

Also I mentioned this in my previous post:

Christ, everyone is misreading what I've said and quoted.

I was pointing out, as has Toomuchcash, specifically to Andyken and no one else that USB 2.0 drives can go over 20MB/s read - that is all.

I was not comparing the prices of the drives as I know the ones I mentioned are 16GB vs the 32GB of the Transcend and I was not saying this is a bad deal. Please read before you complain.

You certainly can as others have stated. External HDDs hit about 40MB/s over USB2.

sorry not miss reading as clearly says here if you added "mind you the cheaper ones are half the storage" ie 16gb
if you solely wanted to comment on speed then you shouldn't have added the xtra bit (price)

Are there any deals on handbags? oO

It depends, if you will be using it with high heels there are some handbags rated for lower speeds available using USB1 (Ultra Slow Bag).

Oh god. Is the fact I quoted that specific sentence Andyken wrote not enough? Just as Toomuchcash and now Agharta have done? I was only giving example USB drives (irrespective of price and size) that prove you can get read speeds of over 20MB/s on USB 2.0.

I've edited my original post.

Sorry guys, I didn't mean to stir up such a hornets nest. It was just something I read in a review somewhere and I wasn't criticising this particular drive in any way, which looks like a really good deal.

Should have kept my mouth shut! oO
