100MB/s+ reads, painful write speeds 04/06/2013
This review is from: Team Color Turn 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model TG032GE902C3
Blazing fast read speeds. No cap to lose. Low price on sale.
Write speeds are mediocre, ~20MB/s for large files at best.
I bought a handful of these and the 16GB models. I see similar speeds on all of them, with a number of computers with different hardware and operating systems. These are all new computers with USB 3.0.
26MB/s is the max speed I was able to get on the 32GB drives when writing to them as raw devices. It only gets slower from there. Writing a bunch of small files to a file system on the device can be maddeningly slow.
Read speeds, on the other hand, are pretty amazing. I've seen sustained 120MB/s speeds when copying a file from the flash drive to network storage. The bottleneck there is the gigabit network.
