Guess the reason it is usb 2.0, a very slow drive?

Here is one for $6.99 and USB 3.1 Gen 1:

That one is TERRIBLE! I have 3 of them. They write at like 1 MB/s. It's absurd. Useful for my several modded wiis but nothing else. A decent USB 2.0 would be faster.

Were you copying lots of small files? There's no way USB 2.0 drives would outperform that Kingston flash drive.

The specs on my old Bell Tv receiver require a usb 2.0 external drive, that might be a use case for this.

On one hand you might not be wrong... In my other hand is another flash drive for the same $10, same 64gb capacity but writes over 25MB/s (I've seen tests say 25-45) and reads closer to 100MB/s.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the vital one from the source is the best drive out there but for $10 in store and for a general use case it's not bad. I also got one of the 32GB drives, similar read but roughly half the write speed.

I could use a new drive as my Lexar died. This has free shipping and is cheap enough. Will grab a micro SD too. Thanks!

Also, while this thread got voted down, it did bring out better deals so ultimately was useful.

The drive hangs for about 5+ seconds for every single file that is written to it. Even if you only wrote 1 or 2 files. It's bad.

USB2.0 is only an interface (a potentiel of speed).
According to the review, this kingston key copy at 6 mb.

I have seen many usb3.0 cheap key with slower write speed than a high end USB2.0.

The writing, (not reading) speed is what determined the price of an usb key.

Lexar was a good brand when it was owned by micron. Now just another dollar store grade peddler of cheap china flash drives, price reflects that.

These are on par with what you would find in those bulk candy bins at the source labeled whatever value house brand they are hucking at the moment.

It's a cheap drive but not that bad:
Avg. Sustained Write Speed 15.5MB/s
https://usb.userbenchmark.com/SpeedTest ... raveler-30

Good luck finding a similarly priced USB 2.0 drive that can do >15MB/s sequential writes.

I dont' need luck, I have a patriot one that does it.

Also, your benchmark link is for the DT100G3/64GB from Kingston, not the link posted by OP.

Look up a few posts... I linked to a USB3 drive, same capacity, same price and depending on the test does sustained 25-45MB/s writes. Sure it's not a native USB2.0 drive but should be backwards compatible if limited to usb 2 ports.
