This review is from: PNY Turbo 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD64GTBOP-GE
Pros: on a USB 3.0 port (win 7 x64), I got
Writing speed: 36.0 MByte/s
Reading speed: 120 MByte/s
Cons: writing speed is about half of what is printed on this page. But don't we all know that it aint gonna happen?! :)
Other Thoughts: Stick was formatted as FAT32, did not try any other types.
But I doubt it will make any difference on a large files.
For comparison, the 32GB stick (the very same model) is a bit slower:
Writing speed: 21.9 MByte/s
Reading speed: 81.2 MByte/s
Pros: USB 3.0 interface (though, it does not help)
Cons: slow. Way slow then one can expect from USB 3.0 device
Other Thoughts: no wander there are no specs on read/write speed on manufacturer web-site. If Corsair had published them nobody would buy this overpriced device.
I measured write speed (on large files) in 7.5-8.0MB/s range.
Read speed was up to 35MB/s on USB 3.0 port. But guess what, when I plugged it into USB 2.0 port, I got exactly the same read speed - 35MB/s max.
So ... why anybody would design USB 3.0 flash drive if it can not use an advantage of USB 3.0 speed?
This product is simply a gimmick from Corsair: ridiculously slow write speed, and they had a nerve to call it USB 3.0 device.
This review is from: PNY Attaché 2 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD32GATT2-GE
Pros: the size is indeed 32GB (those, who complain that it is not, has to read about GB vs GiB, google is your help).
Cons: speed-wise, it's in the entry class of all cheap USB flash sticks.
Other Thoughts: I measured 6.5MB/s write speed, which is actually slightly better then the entry level USB sticks (5MB/ is a typical write speed). Thus, I received exactly what I was expecting. And for the price I paid ($15 for 32GB), it's a very decent stick.READ FULL REVIEW
