This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Ultra 60GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVU60GB
Pros: It works, made from Aircraft Grade Aluminum.
Cons: Expensive for what you get. I bought this thumbdrive and a
ADATA DashDrive Elite UE700 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model AUE700-128G-CBK for $10 more This drive is slower, half the size and runs extreamly hot. I do not look for this drive to last a year. I'm snatching 2 eggs, one for heat and the other for the overrated speed. It does function and is physically well constructed. The speed rating they are providing is a synthetic benchmark and not realtime, realworld thoughput as one would expect to see.
I see 85MB/s when I copy and paste to this drive a far cry from the 445MB/s they advertise and the 220MB/s I see with the Adata as they also advertise. I have purchased other Mushkin thumbdrives and love them. This drive in perticular was a real let down. An expensive lesson learned.
This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Elite UE700 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model AUE700-128G-CBK
Pros: No, I do not work for Adata, and no I do not get any comensation from sending them business. That said, this drive is FAST!!! and spacious. I purchased this drive and a Mushkin Ventura Ultra 60 (claimed to be 455MB/s) This drive blows the Mushkin out of the water. When Adata says it is 220MB/s they are not lying, the speed they post it at is realtime, realworld speed, not some synthetic benchmark or test.
I have purchased many Adata products over the years and all have stood the test of time. I look for this drive to be no exception.
Nice looking, fairly durable construction. Adata stands behind thier products as you can see by manufactures response throughout this website. There may indeed be a faster drive out there, however I have not physically ran into one yet. I have at least 20 thumbdrives currently and over the past have had hundereds of thumbdrives.
I build Operating Systems (Ultimate Edition Linux) for a living, so I go through thumbdrives like most people go through underwear & speed helps me get my job done quicker. This is my #1 tool in my current arsenal. Thanks Adata
Cons: I did not buy 2 instead of the Mushkin Ventura Ultra 60READ FULL REVIEW
