The 64GB Jumpdrive P10 is Lexar's 2013 upgrade to their flagship Triton range of flash drives. The P10 shares the same excellent body as the Triton and delivers actual speed increases in the region of 30% over its predecessor. In terms of price there is not a huge increase so I do prefer the 64GB P10 to the 64GB Triton but the upgrade is less pronounced than when going from the 32GB Triton to the 32GB P10 where performance increased by nearly 75%. Despite its record breaking sequential speeds the 64GB P10, like the Triton and the other P10 drives, struggles in the area of small 4K random writes. If you are planning to use this drive to copy small files or to host applications you will likely be disappointed otherwise for tasks such as copying video and audio files this is one of the fastest flash drives you can currently buy. [Aug '13 USBFlashPro]

For real world usability this is currently the best 64GB flash drive (superseded by the Ventura Ultra - 2014). It has a very balanced performance profile with an exceptional 4K random write speed. The 16GB version of the Extreme is currently the value leader in the USB 3.0 flash drive shootout. At present there are no viable alternatives to the 64GB Extreme in fact the Corsair voyager GT turbo is the only drive on the horizon that may challenge the Sandisk any time soon. There are however several reports (Newegg, Amazon) of compatibility issues with this, the 64GB version (other versions are fine), so if you do go for the 64GB version, don't throw the receipt away in a hurry. [Feb '13 USBFlashPro]
