   Reviewed by Ernest Bundren from Roseburg, OR on 01/11/11

The Good:    Every bit as fast as nice usb 2.0 drives
The Squirrelly:    Not every bit as fast as the 16 gb version. No matter how I formated this bad boy, I couldn't get it to live up to the 16 gb versions speed. I used HD tune on it and it says it performs at 33mb/sec, but in real life tests, it doesn't perform any faster than decent usb2.0 drives. I have the 16 gb version and it is twice as fast xfering real life files like vobs and pics and the like. SO, unless I got a bad one (doubtful), spend the little bit of extra cash and get the 16gb version, you'll be very impressed.

The Good:    Every bit as good as fast as Super Talent advertising says for both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 usage. Test platform: EVGA SR-2 Test OS: Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Test Utility: Everest Ultimate Disk Benchmark USB 2.0 Linear Test Read Speed: 32.2 MB/s Average 31.7 MB/s Minimum 33.0 MB/s Maximum USB 3.0 Linear Test Read Speed: 68.0 MB/s Average 62.5 MB/s Minimum 133.3 MB/s Maximum Test Utility: Atto Disk Benchmark USB 3.0 Speed: 67,108 MB/s Read 36,805 MB/s Write
The Squirrelly:    The case is still the same cheap plastic case found on pervious version of these drives. But hey, it's the low end of the USB 3.0 scale right now. I doubt you will find any price lower with a better case on any other manufacturers's drive. the cap has no plac on the drive to be held while not in use. The drive is not micro sized.

The Good:    USB 2.0 speed test right out of the package: : "Test finished without errors. You can now delete the test files *.h2w or verify them again. Writing speed: 12.9 MByte/s Reading speed: 27.1 MByte/s H2testw v1.4"
The Squirrelly:    Not too bad.
Pro Tip:    Very slim profile.

The Good:    Haven't been able to test USB 3.0 speeds but USB 2.0 speeds are easily among the fastest. USBDeview Speed Test: (formatted as exFAT w/ default allocation unit size) Write 12.60 MB/Sec ; Read 27.30 MB/Sec ; Results were taken in Windows 7. I also did an informal stopwatch test to compare actual transfer rates. An 800 MB video file took 60 seconds to transfer to the drive. Transferring back from the drive took 28 seconds. (The computer I'm using to test all this is from the early P4 era, so it's old. Results might be a tad better on a newer machine with faster SATA drives instead of IDE drives.) Can't wait to try USB 3.0.
The Squirrelly:    None.
Pro Tip:    Under hardware policies you can set the drive for "Quick Removal" or "Better Performance" via write caching. However, enabling write caching in my case yielded no noticeable increase in transfer speeds so I switched back to Quick Removal for the convenience. Also, I find using exFAT allows you to effectively squeeze every last drop of space on the drive since exFAT doesn't have as large an overhead as NTFS nor the inadequacies of FAT32 such as the inability to store single files larger than 4 GBs. I currently see 7.32 GB free out of 7.32 GB total as opposed to 7.25 GB free out of 7.32 GB total with NTFS after formatting. The lost space is the result of the larger overhead. This might not bother some people but I need every last byte I can get.
