This drive changed everything for me. I ran my usual set of benchmarks to see just how it stacked up against my older drive... and my internal. The results blew my mind. I use a MacBook Pro 17" 2011 model with a 7200 RPM drive and I get about 100MB/S for both read and write. In my benchmarks, this USB 3.0 flash drive gets a staggering 210MB/s reading... and 130MB/s writing. That's more than twice the speed reading ... and 30% faster writing. WOW!
One word of caution. I got this performance using a USB 3.0 ExpressCard 34, so you WON'T get this speed using a MacBook Pro less than 17 inches (they don't have ExpressCards in smaller models).
The drive came pre-formatted as Fat32, which makes it very compatible, but to me it's a worthless format for larger volumes because it limits files to 4GB or less, plus it has no built-in recovery options. So, I re-formatted it under Mac and under NTFS (using the Paragon NTFS drivers). I actually got faster performance under NTFS, so I kept it in that format so I can share the drive with my Windows computers.
Also, I should point out that even under USB 2.0, the drive is still faster than older models because it has 8 channels of memory instead of 4 like the previous model. So, in my benchmarks the drive clearly outperforms the older model in 2.0 computers, with reads at 35MB/s and writes at 25 MB/s... compared to 28MB/s read... and only 14MB/S writing. So, even in USB 2.0, writing is now twice as fast.
Bottom line... This drive SMOKES!
**** UPDATE MAY 2016 ****
I should point out one problem I've discovered. The caps on these are very fragile and they can eventually lose their grip, making them useless. I have several of these, including my newest which is only 10 months old and contacted the manufacturer hoping to get a replacement cap under warranty. They sent me to an Ebay seller's page where they sell them for $3, plus $2.60 to ship. Could you imagine that? $2.60 to ship the cap? So, it's nearly $6 to replace the cap. Just keep that in mind.
Amazon sent me a replacement and I got a USED one for some reason with somebody's
family pictures and I could not even re-format it. Error: "the drive is read-only".
Amazon sent me another one and that one failed too right after the first file I copied.
Sending it back again. I used to have Patriot 64GB and never had any problems. But this
one is terrible. 3 devices 3 failures during 1 month. DO NOT BUY IT. BELOW ZERO STARS !!!
Back in December (2012) we picked up a hand full of ADATA USB 3.0 drives. EVERY one has failed. (seriously, within months all 5 have failed!) I'm not even going to bother getting them replaced as the company doesn't feel safe enough to put data on these Drives. We decided to go with old faithful, Patriot (we also like Mushkin Prospector series).
We purchased a couple of the Patriot Supersonic Boost XT USB 3.0 Flash Drives (PEF32GSBUSB) & the Patriot Supersonic Rage XT 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drives (PEF32GSRUSB). Each one has been fantastic but me and the head engineer wanted to see how fast Magnum was....
Killer performance. I performed the following test using a RAMDisk to help minimize the bottle neck (see below). All results are based off of transferring 47 video files totally 10.8gb (largest file = 982mb, smallest = 20mbs).
Magnum's write(RamDisk -> Magnum) speed was stable at 157MB/s the entire way
Magnum's read (Magnum -> RamDisk) speed was stable at 234MB/s the entire way
I will be uploading pictures of the test.
CrystalDisk Mark results
RAMDisk = READ @ 8GB/s & WRITE @ 9GB/s
Patriot Magnum = READ @ 253MB/s & WRITE @ 169MB/s
