4 out of 5 eggs Real World Evaluation - Samsung 128GB BAR (Metal) USB 3.0 Flash Drive 10/07/2016

This review is from: Samsung 128GB BAR (Metal) USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 130MB/s (MUF-128BA/AM)

Pros: Fast 120 MB/s average read speed under Windows 7 copying a 20 GB file to another drive.
Performed 128 Gigabyte NTFS full format of the drive without problems.
Waterproof, heatproof, and fully shielded.
5 year Samsung limited warranty.
Compact design.
Chrome finish looks great!
No cap to lose or moving cover to break.
Large key ring or lanyard hole at the end.

Cons: Only 40 MB/s average write speed under Windows 7 copying a 20 GB file to this drive.
Samsung does not clearly state the write speed of this drive in the specifications.
It does get a bit warm when plugged in.

Other Thoughts: I would have been willing to pay more for a model that had the 90 MB/s write speed of the Samsung Pro Select Micro-SDHX flash card.
