Shockingly slow - do not buy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kingston Technology 16 GB USB 2.0 DataTraveler SE9H Flash Drive with Metal Casing - Frustration Free Packaging (Accessory)
USB memory stick of size 16GB and more is obviously used for either very large files or large amount of data and has to be fast. Write speed from my computer to this usb stick is about 3.7MB per second. Imagine how long it takes to save short but full HD video to play it for example on your TV. I am sorry but 10min to write a 2GB video is far too long these days even knowing it is not USB3.
Conclusion? Well the problem is on Amazon you won't find information about speed. You need to go online and search for speed tests for particular models and then maybe come back and make the purchase. Can't believe that being a bit of a tech guy I assumed the speed will be decent.
