The 32GB Sandisk Ultra Fit has both a tiny form factor and a respectable performance profile. With peak sequential read/write speeds of 136/55 MBps and peak 4K read/writes of 6.6/2.0 MBps the 32GB Ultra Fit sits amongst the top 25% of 32GB flash drives. In terms of value for money the Ultra fit fares even better and is bested only by the Sandisk Extreme. Comparing the 32GB Extreme and Ultra Fit shows that the Extreme has over double the effective speed yet the extreme is only 32% more expensive than the Ultra Fit. To conclude, the 32GB Ultra Fit has good peak performance (sustained performance is far less impressive) but its key strengths are its tiny form factor and reasonable price tag. [Oct '14 USBFlashPro]
