I bought this stick from Scan before Xmas for about £4.50.Just wanted something for temporary storage and speed wasn't an issue.Was expecting around 3.5MB/s write speeds. I put it in a USB 3.0 socket on the PC, and was really surprised to see it write at around 9MB/s. :D
A lot of the cheap USB3 sticks that get posted have write speeds slower than USB2, so the fact that this is USB2 isn't necessarily a negative. However, I looked up the speeds of this stick and they're even worse than the cheap USB3 sticks! Read speed: up to 15MB/s write speed: up to 5MB/s.
If you’re going by that rule... You’ll be over the legal limit by the time you transfer one song (lol)
It’s ok for me, set it going, then you have GOT TO keep an eye on it, so while you are watching it you can sit out in the sun and have ice cold beer. That’s what I’ve been doing most of today. Setting up new thumb drive music and kids videos for the new car. The slower the drive, the more beer you can have while you’re watching it. Super beer drinking deal.
