Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Pro 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVP32GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Faster than advertised. 04/15/2015

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Pro 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVP32GB

Pros: Faster than I anticipated.
USB 3.0 and you actually can take advantage of the extra speed of 3.0
solid feel.

Cons: None currently.

Other Thoughts: From my limited testing I've typically gotten 80-90 MB/s writes with occasional bursts over 100. This was done with files 150 MB up to 7 GB. I'm using this mainly to keep video files on hand so I haven't tried it with a large number of smaller files. Able to fill the drive in under 15 minutes if I so desire.

Since reads are always faster I haven't paid too much attention to them but they can go over 120 MB/s for sure.

Super happy with this drive.

Western Digital Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've had this drive for over 3 years now.

Fast for a spindle drive, have been able to clock this thing at 120-130 MB/s throughput on reads and a tad slower on writes. Never tried the random read/writes though. Don't usually see it drop lower than 90ish MB/s with transfers of lots of pictures (5-10 MB each, usually in 5-16 GB sets). This is still consistent after 3 years of use.

Doesn't care if it's more than half full (I can poke fun at many SSD's right? (-: )

It is tough! I've really put this drive through the ringer. I didn't have it in a case for about a year and transported it around with my laptop with an external connector (didn't even have it inside an enclosure). Even dropped it while it was running a few times (scared the ever living bajezes out of me) and it's still chugging. I don't recommend doing this, I was just low on funds at the time.

Cons: I haven't had any bad experiences with this drive in any way.

Other Thoughts: I did have a few bad sectors (had some CRC errors) on the occasional file for about 6 months after I finally stuffed it into my tower. For the number of times that I dropped it while it was running that seems par for the course really. They were all recoverable though, so no data loss. All in all a very tough and reliable drive, if you put it in a tower I doubt that you'd have problems with this drive ever. I haven't had a CRC error in over a year now.

4 out of 5 eggs Plenty of space, not super fast 03/19/2013

This review is from: Transcend JetFlash 760 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model TS32GJF760

Pros: Spacious for moving lot of files or large files.

Cons: Not as fast as I was hoping for a USB 3 drive. Only saturates USB 2 connection on some reads.

Other Thoughts: I probably shouldn't expect this to be super fast for the price I got it for (was $20).

Impression about write speeds: So far I typically average about 20-25 MB/s writes on USB 3 on my desktop. once in a while it bursts to 30 or 35, not much higher than that. I have had it dip to 10-15 on copying several hundred 5-10 MB pictures. Take that with a grain of salt because I ran that on my netbook ASUS 1201N.

Read imperssions: Read is definitely faster than writes. I have been able to do a move off of the drive at an average of 50 MB/s on my USB 3 connection on my desktop. Same picture files as mentioned above. Did burst for a bit over 60 MB/s (if Terracopy is to be believed) I have had it go lower on some video files to 25-30 MB/s so it's not completely consistent with the files that I've handed it.

I do like having the additional space that 32 GB affords (Windows will see it as 29.4 GB, at lest that's my sample).

I have noticed that with writing a lot of data to the drive it does get pretty warm to the touch, not that you'll burn yourself but I do wonder if that'll have an effect on the longevity of the drive. First USB drive I've owned that does that.

IMO: Decent amount of space, decent typical read speeds, write speeds leave something to be desired. For the price (under $30), it's a good drive.
