I have one of these and write speeds are slow as hell. Could be useful for a USB full of bootable ISOs, but honestly just go buy a better one for a few bucks more.

You young whippersnappers and your fancy floppy discs.
Punch cards are the epitome of technology.

Before you know it your discs will be infected with viruses.

There's no mention of read/write speeds anywhere. USB 3.1 don't mean anything. For 128GB its good from staples. But I rather order something that shows the speeds.
Also, check the manufacture's website... nothing about speeds.
it's
https://www.verbatim.com/prod/usb-drive ... sku-49189/.


Seems that at the price nothing that can beat the price, but I bet its like 10mb write/read.


EDIT I found on Amazon:
Patriot Supersonic Rage Lite USB 3.2 Gen 1 Flash Drive - 128GB - PEF128GRLB32U
$2 cheaper now, and can see the speeds... IMO..
https://www.amazon.ca/Patriot-Supersoni ... r=1-9&th=1

-The "real world" write speed is OK. Large transfers in Windows start fast then cycles fast/slow a few times depending on file size. CrystalDiskMark benchmark shows 138 Mb/sec read and 80 Mb/sec write, but in Windows use, the read speed is 120 Mb/sec and write speed peeks at times to 50 Mb/sec then slows to 10 Mb/sec.

Unlike dropping your portable hard drive, your data is not lost :)
And since the storage capacity is lower you will have to optimize your software instead of today's bloatware Winking Face

I can't wait until ChatGPT becomes a regular on RFD.

I want to ask him (confirmed his pronoun already) deep specification questions.

Meanwhile, I'll have to look for specs and benches on my own.

Thank you, gents.

The real world speeds are nowhere close to 120 read /10 write MB/s:

Solid state drives can also just die for no reason whats so ever. Just like spinning drives being dropped. They won't die if you drop but can die for other reasons. If you care about your data need 3-2-1 backup plan.

Also depends on the drive revision, not sure if you guys remember how ssd makers were switch chips on the fly. the review version would look amazing and later they switched to different flash media...

"It seems that the world of technology has stopped with allegations that some SSD companies are pulling the old ‘bait and switch’ routine in their SSDs by switching off components that many had recognized through initial SSD reviews. We have read several reports and forums, most of which simply repeat the original information, and finally have decided to clarify things just a bit from our perspective. Get ready though as many may not like our viewpoint; it goes against the grain somewhat."

I don't know if Verbatim drive is as slow as the Patriot one I was referring to.
I do complain because I paid $24+tax for the Sandisk and $20+tax for the Patriot (both on sale) so the latter one is a raw deal from that perspective.
