Verbatim’s Store ‘n’ Go USB 3.0 Flash Drive, allows you to take full advantage of USB 3.0 interface which offers data transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0! Featuring 4 channel I/O architecture for high performance, Verbatim’s Store ‘n’ Go USB 3.0 Flash Drive can provide Read speeds up to 120MB/s and Write speeds up to 70MB/s on USB 3.0 equipped computers. The Verbatim Store 'n' Go flash drive is 100% compatible with USB 2.0 ports for easy file interchange and includes password protection software for safeguarding sensitive files.
Pros: I went with this product since I already have the 8gb usb 2.0 version and loved it. The slide design keeps you from losing a cap (there isnt one), and it has faster read/write speeds than usb 2.0 versions. Fits easlily on keychains and will fit into most usb ports as it isnt much wider than previous usb 2.0 versions. However it is a little thicker, at about 7/16 of an inch, so you may have problems fitting two flash drives togther on the stacked usb ports (like a laptop). Realistically has about 29gb worth of space out the packaging, which is plenty.
Cons: Fastest speeds I could obtain were capped at around 40 mb/s on both read/write using my native 3.0 motherboard (Gigabyte x58 ud3r rev 2). Really kinda disappointed me, as I was expecting more after reading reviews of other usb 3.0 drives on here reaching speeds around 70/100 mb/s . Couldnt get any faster speeds even after reinstalling the newest 3.0 drivers on my board.
Other Thoughts: Does its jobs, but not the fastest.
