July 2014 USB Rankings

We highlight the best USB flash drive in terms of balanced performance and value for money using price, sequential read, sequential write , 4k read and 4k write speed.

Effective speed is adjusted by price and capacity to yield value for money. Finally thousands of individual user ratings are used to validate our benchmark figures. Vote to share your opinion.
