I am updating my review to 3 stars to reflect the satisfactory customer service that I finally got from Visiontek. My UPDATE #1 got the attention of the right person at Visiontek, Rick Givens. He reached out to me, and to make a long story short, has resolved my issues in a way satisfactory to me. If anyone reading this is having customer support issues with Visiontek, then make sure to contact Rick directly.
I am changing my rating from 4 stars to 1 star. DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE (or anything else from VisionTek).
Reason: several weeks ago, my drive simply stopped working at USB 3.0 speeds when plugged into USB 3.0 ports. I spent a couple of hours on the phone with Dell's professional support seeing if my Dell T1700 was the cause: no dice. Indeed, I eventually got my hands on another USB 3.0 device (an external hard drive), and verified that my USB 3.0 ports work at high speed. So the problem must be with this flash drive.
Even worse, after I emailed VisionTek, it took days before I got a response. They wanted to know how I was doing the benchmarking. This was stupid: my original email gave them enough details to know that the USB 2.0 speeds I was seeing could not be due to benchmarking flaws. Nevertheless, I gave them another detailed answer. I never heard back. I warned them 8 days ago that I was going to ream them on Amazon if they did not start offering me proper support. They never responded. Hence this review downgrade.
I ordered this drive a couple of months ago, and have been using it steady ever since.
I wanted a thumb drive that is really an SSD. In particular, that uses a proper controller, as opposed to the crap el cheapo controllers in almost all thumb drives. This VisionTek drive is one of the very few that fits the bill. I bought it instead of Corsair's because it is slightly physically smaller. The review that best informed my judgement was this one:
Overall, I am pleased with this drive.
It has been, and remains, reasonably fast for an SSD drive in this form factor. For example, using the freeware benchmarking program AS SSD just now, I measured:
sequential read speed = 156.91 MB/s
sequential writes as 101.43 MB/s
4k random read = 16.74 MB/s
4k random write= 63.26 MB/s
4k-64 thread random read = 16.76 MB/s
4k-64 thread random write= 72.84 MB/s
read access time = 0.155 ms
write access time = 0.347 ms
(The above was measured in the drive's first partition, which is a 8 GB FAT32 partition that I have strictly for backwards compatibility with certain software or operating systems that require it, such as GParted or Clonezilla live images. I do most of my storage in the second partition, which is all the remaining space formatted in NTFS with 4K block size.)
My device gets warm, but NOT HOT (where I define the start of hot as when it becomes uncomfortable to touch).
I love the fact that it has a cap, and that the cap can be put on the back when plugged in. My previous thumb drive was a Sandisk Extreme Pro slider which eventually broke; never want a slider again.
I have 3 moderate complaints that prevent me from rating it at 5 stars. First, it is bigger than I would like. Sure, it is still small enough that you can still carry it around in your pocket, and I do, all day long, but I would like it to be smaller if possible. Second, the case, while made of high quality metal, has some edges and corners that are sharper than they out to be. Third, the paint has started to chip in places (like those sharp points).
Overall, this is the best thumb drive currently shipping that I am aware of, but it could be improved. VisionTek: I hope that you are reading this review.
And the worst part is that when I contacted Vision Tek , they asked me to send the product to their Chicago office by a trackable courier in a anti - static bag , all at my own cost. They will check and then decide if i am eligible for a replacement or not. I replied them that instead of doing all that I would go an buy myself a Samsung T1 which is what I did and it is running fine till date.
I will definitely say that this product is almost near to what levels of I/O speeds that it claims , but for me it was extremely non-durable and unreliable. It is good for short cycle usage , but if planning to use it for long engagements ( watching video , audio directly from it) , from my experience it is not worth the money.
