First things first...It's made well enough as USB flash drives go and the flip out tang has just the right amount of stiffness and snaps into place to make you feel confident it won't pop back in when inserting into the usb port.. there's also a small hole at the back of the stick to insert a lanyard loop... Now primarily, it's best used in a USB 3 port for maximum speeds, but it won't disappoint in a USB 2 port either.. I gave it some thorough testing on a variety of size files..
Before I tell you of the speeds I achieved.... as with any flash drive... it will perform best on a good set up..Home computer or Laptop...A good many people blame the product, when in essence. it's their equipment that is to blame, and this in turn means they will not achieve the manufacturers claims... and I must admit this sort of info should be passed on by the maker to make things clearer to the buyer to begin with, then maybe they wouldn't get so many bad reviews...Sorry I digress..!!
Back to my testing.. I first tried it in my home computer (An AMD 5.8 ghz duel core 4GB Ram)..a USB 2 port and I used the same file throughout the test... a 1 GB HD video clip copying it from my Hard drive to the Sandisk..It ran a stable 35 Mbs write speed and the same read speed also.. Pretty impressive..
Then came the second test on my laptop..a more powerful machine then my home set up( a HP DV 7 Quad core 8gb ram with USB 3 and 2)..I used the USB 2 port first, and it increased to 50 Mbs write speed and a 50 Mbs read...WOW I thought...Then I tested it in the USB 3..Read more ›
When I tested this drive with BlackMagic speed-testing software it was a little faster than the manufacturer claimed on the packaging. By comparison, another USB 3 drive I bought before reading any reviews had a quarter of this drive's read speed and one tenth of the write speed. The other drive cost less per gigabyte but did a poor job booting the computer. With the technology currently on the market there are enormous variations in performance and if you want a fast flash drive this SanDisk Extreme is a safe choice.
When I first received it I was very optimistic about this USB. It looks bigger in the pictures than it did in real life, not a bad thing. It was packed like any other USB.
The feel of the USB-
It does feel like a bit cheep for A £30 USB, My Corsair USB 3.0 felt a lot more premium as it had a rubber feel, this has a matte kind of plastic that surrounds the USB apart from the slider which brings me onto my next point. The slider feels really nice, it slides a bit then the actual USB connection jumps out. It feels really nice and it's as smooth as silk. I've actually just been sliding it in my had while writing this review.
I haven't done any real/proper performance tests but it does transfer data/music very fast, faster than my Corsair USB and thats also A USB 3.0
I paid £30 for the 32GB version. I wouldn't say it' great value as there are other USB 3.0's that are less than or around £20 and have similar performance, like the Adata USB 3.0 32GB AData DashDrive Elite S102 Pro USB3.0 Flash Drive (Titanium Grey)
In all its a great USB and I recommend it but consider the price as there are many alternatives out there.
