Build quality, slider style, reputable manufacturer, better USB port compatibility than Silicon Power 64GB Blaze USB 3.0 Flash Drive (The silicon power wouldn't work in the top USB 2.0 ports on my desktop PC, just the back ports directly on motherboard and USB 3.0 ports - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H7PBWNU )
Slow write speeds - around 17-18 MB/s sustained. This is a real world test writing hundreds of JPEG photos about 2-3MB per file from a fast Corsair (heh) Neutron SSD drive ( http://www.amazon.com/product/dp/B00AW3O4WU ). Can't blame it on my hardware setup because the Patriot Supersonic 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive ( http://www.amazon.com/product/dp/B004ZNA3UA ) sustained ~48 MB/s for the same exact transfer, but it does cost 2x as much.
Reading speeds are quite good though. About 110-120 MB/s for copying those same files. The Patriot was about the same.
CrystalDiskMark showed the following (all in MB/s):
Seq Read: 154.0
Seq Write: 20.42
512k Read: 131.1
512k Write: 0.550
4k Read: 10.07
4k Write: 0.022
4k QD32 Read: 10.13
4k QD32 Write: 0.025
Pretty much all USB flash drives are terrible in anything other than sequential. But sequential is usually pretty close to real world results. The other tests 512k, 4k, etc. are more for actual hard drives on a SATA connection, but I posted the info here anyway.
If you're curious what the Patriot Supersonic did, as a comparison:
Seq Read: 295.2
Seq Write: 150.5
512k Read: 215.6
512k Write: 1.163
4k Read: 10.96
4k Write: 0.688
4k QD32 Read: 7.776
4k QD32 Write: 1.331
First off, it's formatted as FAT 32, so if you want to transfer larger files once you get it, forget that!
Then, if you do format the drive to NTFS, it will die on you! That's right! After you format it to NTFS, even a small file transfer will make the drive red hot and unreadable.
So, I sent my first one back, figuring it was probably just a defect. Got a new one, and it worked up until now. I was transferring some home movies from my desktop to my laptop, and not only did it screw over my USB 3.0 ports on my desktop, but I lost all the files because it decided to again become red hot and unreadable.
So, tossed it out immediately. I'll bite the cost and find a drive that's not designed to die if you try to transfer larger files.
I own a TON of flash drives for music file playback. As the quality has dropped significantly in the last year on many brands, including Lexar, Sandisk & Kingston, this model (128 GB) has become my ONLY budget go to Flash drive. Reliable, fast, & no glitches with 192/24 audio. I hope the QC & quality remain at this high level; as the brands I previously used for important files have all gone badly downhill.
The overall build quality is very good. The slide that retracts the port itself is smooth and sturdy and has some silicon rubber at the end for added protection in case it is dropped or stepped on.
Got this at a steal on Amazon Prime Day (yes, I actually got something) and it's been my go-to drive for all of my storage needs. Back in '95, I never imagined I'd need so many floppies (especially to have on hand), and in reality, I still don't, but it's nice to have the space should I ever need it.
Verdict: Solid drive for the price. Seems quick enough, and feels very sturdy.
