The 16GB Jumpdrive P10 decimates the existing sequential write speed records. With a sequential write speed of 161 MB/s the P10 is 52% faster than the current record of 106 MB/s which is held by Lexar's previous flagship USB 3.0 Jumpdrive Triton. As yet the P10 is still relatively new but Lexar have an excellent track record for reliability and the P10 is likely to fare well amongst the competition. Within the 16 GB category the P10 is currently the worlds fastest flash drive. That said, if your use case involves a lot of small file operations (most don't), then there are better alternatives available. [Aug '13 USBFlashPro]

The Flash Survivor is twice both the size and weight of most flash drives. This drive would be as well suited to smuggling diamonds as it is to carrying mp3's and word documents around. If you need a seriously robust flash drive, then this is almost certainly going to be your best choice. From a performance perspective the Flash Survivor is slightly below average but there are no glaring weaknesses, it has a well-rounded performance profile. Finally in terms of value this drive is towards the bottom of the pile unless you need super rugged features in which case it's a very good option. [Jun '12 USBFlashPro]
