Very quick but suspect physical durability.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lexar LJDS23-32GABEU 32GB Media JumpDrive S23 USB 3.0 Drive - Green (Accessory)
Bought this to be used as a USB source for time shift for a smart TV so this influences this review. On receipt, I tested out performance on my Mac with USB 3.0. A large 960Mb file transferred in just under 18 seconds so pretty much on the advertised write speed of 55Mb/sec. I didn't time the read speed but copying the file back was approximately twice as quick so I think the advertised speeds of 100Mb/sec & 55Mb/sec for read and write are spot on.
Now as others have mentioned, the casing of the drive is plastic including the USB connector and it does feel flimsy to the touch. This lightweight build quality and flex may actually allow the device to survive all but the hardest of knocks, all I know is I wouldn't feel too confident carrying this on a keyring. That brings me back to my reason for purchase. This is now plugged into my Samsung Smart TV for recording purposes and therefore will not be removed or carried with any kind of regularity. Performance for this function is great but I have knocked it down one star as I think the build quality does limit the practical uses of this device.
Great performance for the money though.
