5.0 out of 5 stars Nice!, March 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Patriot Flex 2.0 USB 32GB Flash Drive - Silver (PSF32GFXUSB) (Personal Computers)
This is a very small flash drive. I like to carry all my files around on my key chain as a backup in case a tornado hits my house, or something. This flash drive is NOT fast, at all. So if you often transfer large files, this may not be the one for you. I transfer mostly document files, so no problem. It is sturdy. The last few flash drives I had, the hole for the key chain broke. I don't think that I'll have any problems with this one.

I just got the drive today, and here are my test results:

Test finished without errors.
You can now delete the test files *.h2w or verify them again.
Writing speed: 6.17 MByte/s
Reading speed: 17.4 MByte/s
H2testw v1.4

I wouldn't call it really slow. There's faster drives, but for the price and size, this is pretty good.

Your performance numbers are atrocious !

your 17/6 MBs R/W speeds is barely faster than USB 1.1 speeds !
Those performance numbers are as larcenous as being sold a brand new Pontiac !

You are confusing bits with bytes. USB 1.1 "full speed" is 12Mbps (=1.5 MBps) which is impossible to fully realize. Mrooobaa reports 17.4MBps of real read speed, which is about 139Mbps, or about 11.6 times faster than USB 1.1's impossible-to-achieve full speed spec. Writing is always slower on these flash memories than is the read speed, so it's not unusual to see 6.2MBps write speeds. I see nothing especially bad about the speeds that mrooobaa has measured.
