Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3B05V1K)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Works great, nice and fast 09/29/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3B05V1K)

Pros: 32 GB in a form factor the size of my pinky finger. I remember when a 16 MB USB flash drive was physically bigger than this thing....

LED activity light lets you know if data is going into or out of the device. This is helpful if you aren't sure if it's OK to unplug the drive or not.

Lifetime warranty should give you peace of mind, with the caveat it probably doesn't cover normal wear and tear of getting beaten around in your pocket. Looking through the review history of this drive, reliability doesn't seem to be much of a concern regardless.

Speed tests returned better results than this guy's 64GB brother for some reason. See my results in the Other section at the bottom of my review.

Cons: The slide mechanism feels a little flimsy. Granted, this device is so cheap it's almost disposable, so I don't expect an awesome manufacturing process perfectly aligning everything internally.

No lanyard included even though there is space to thread one into the housing.

Other Thoughts: My speed test via Roadkil's Disk Speed Version 2.0 reveals the below results. Overall the drive performs well for an inexpensive USB 3.0 flash drive. Random read speed is acceptable for this size and price range. Linear read speed is good, especially with larger file types.

4 out of 5 eggs Works fine but speeds could be a tad better 09/27/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power 64GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP064GBUF3B05V1K)

Speed tests return lukewarm results. See my results in the Other section at the bottom of my review.

Cons: The slide mechanism feels a little flimsy. Granted, this device is so cheap it's almost disposable, so I don't expect an awesome manufacturing process perfectly aligning everything internally.

Other Thoughts: My speed test via Roadkil's Disk Speed Version 2.0 reveals the below results. Overall the drive performs a bit worse than expected for an inexpensive USB 3.0 flash drive. Random read speed is relatively slow with small file types; linear read speed is moderate, especially with larger file types. I expected a bit faster times for linear read speeds and larger file types.

Silicon Power 64GB Jewel J80 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP064GBUF3J80V1T)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Works great so far 09/27/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power 64GB Jewel J80 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP064GBUF3J80V1T)

Pros: 64 GB in a form factor half the size of my pinky finger - what an amazing thing technology is...

This has a very attractive housing. It's a nice darkish grey gunmetal color and is relatively scratch resistant, although I foresee my keys eventually scratching it over time.

Lifetime warranty should give you peace of mind, with the caveat it probably doesn't cover normal wear and tear of getting beaten around in your pocket.

Speed tests return good results. See my results in the Other section at the bottom of my review.

Cons: No cover over the contacts. If this is sitting in your pocket all day, the inside will get dirty and perhaps scratched up. This may affect speed and/or reliability over time. That sort of goes with the whole look, though, so it's a give and take.

Lifetime warranty (a pro, above) is probably a good thing considering a lot of the earlier reviews of this guy indicate some reliability issues.

Other Thoughts: I notice that someone already did a Crystal Disk Mark speed test, so I used a different software package to give some (perhaps) different results. My speed test via Roadkil's Disk Speed Version 2.0 reveals the below results. Overall the drive performs as expected for an inexpensive USB 3.0 flash drive. Random read speed is relatively slow with small file types; linear read speed is very fast, especially with larger file types. This is par for all of these products.
