The first time I tried it on my PC it only gave me speeds of 40MB/s reads and writes so I thought some of the bad reviews must be accurate then and a bad batch was sent to some customers. So just to be fair to Sandisk I've tested it on my laptop as well - I instantly got the speeds advertised by the manufacturer
It turns out the USB 3.0 drivers that came with the motherboard were the problem somehow so I've uninstalled them and Windows 8.1 has replaced them with the default ones.
The story is that if you don't get the advertised speeds don't jump straight to giving these devices a bad review. Do some tests - different computer, different drivers.....
The flash drive is definitely worth the money
USB3 port, Crystal Disk MarkS test, 2000MB of data, random write operations:
sequential read: Read: 200MB/s - Write 188.4MB/s (movies transfered in seconds!!!)
512k samples: Read: 144.1MB/s - Write 23.31MB/s
4k samples: Read: 10.60MB/s - Write 10.12MB/s
4kQD32 samples: Read: 9.175MB/s - Write 10.14MB/s
Wanted to share just how much faster this is than buying a cheap 64GB USB2 stick.
SanDisk SDCZ80-064G-G46 64GB Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive
"up to 190 MB/s read, write speed lower and varies by capacity"
On Amazon from Jan 2013, 16 reviews 4 stars, Current price £50
My old stick:
iBoutique IB64GUSB2 USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Elite Flash Drive (64GB, Jet Black)
"20 MB/s write, 30 MB/s read"
On Amazon from Jun 2011, 1800 reviews 4 stars, Current price £16, cheap, so still being bought frequently
Most noteable real world differences for me are:
A. SanDisk read is 7x faster in USB3 port than iBoutique in USB2 port
B. SanDisk write is 6x faster in USB2 port than iBoutique in USB2 port (this really helps)
Figures below are in MB/sec
Max.speed test with ATTO benchmark (PC = Windows 7, I7, test = 1 GByte of 8 MByte files)
iBoutique-USB2 in USB2 port = 8 write, 21 read
in USB3 port = no different
SanDisk-USB3 in USB2 port = 31 write, 37 read
in USB3 port = 167 write, 201 read
Back in the real world :), timed transfer of 750 MBytes of 250 files gave :
iBoutique-USB2 in USB2 port = 4 write, 19 read
in USB3 port = no different
SanDisk-USB3 in USB2 port = 23 write, 31 read
in USB3 port = 77 write, 128 read
Someone-else highlighted that exFat (e.g iBoutique) seems to be significantly slower
than Fat32 (e.g SanDisk) when writing lots of files, and could be a major cause of transfer slow-down.Read more ›
Read: 184.1 MB/s
Write: 253.7 MB/s
Nice slide and lock mechanism.
Very easy to get in to packing.
Feels a little cheap as it's plastic.
A little larger than I would have liked.
Still giving 5 stars though as I am VERY impressed with this flash drive.
Buy one, you'll not regret it :)
In practical terms, it can transfer a 1 gigabyte file - such as a movie - in 10 seconds.
There are dozens of USB3.0 sticks on the market, but few of them take advantage of the speeds available. Many in fact are slower than their USB2.0 counterparts.
The speed of the SanDisk Extreme comes at a premium. You could very easily get a 64GB stick for the same price, or a 128GB for a little more, but those sticks will undoubtedly be slower. If you value speed over size, then this is the stick for you. If you'd prefer a bigger stick, and you're not overly concerned about transfer speeds, then you should probably consider another.
As an FYI, I used this stick to freshly install Windows 8.1 onto my new build computer, which houses a 250GB Samsung Evo SSD. It took just over 5 minutes, from beginning installation process to first bootup. I seriously cannot recommend this stick enough.
