The 16GB Sandisk Extreme has led my USB 3.0 Flash drive group test since it was released back in Jun '12. Often with flash based devices, write speed scales linearly with capacity and the Extreme is no exception. The sequential write speeds for the different capacities are: 16GB = 62 MB/s, 32GB = 117 MB/s and 64GB = 188 MB/s. In the 64GB category there are several alternatives to the Extreme including the new Corsair Flash Voyager GT Turbo, Kingston HyperX and Patriot Supersonic Magnum. In the 16 GB category there are also a few viable alternatives but in the 32GB category I have yet to come across a drive that even comes close to the Sandisk Extreme from either a value for money OR performance perspective.  [Mar '13 USBFlashPro]

The 32GB Jumpdrive P10 is one of the fastest flash drives I have seen in 2013. The P10 has exactly the same, superb, physical construction as its predecessor, the Jumpdrive Triton. Internally the 32 GB version of the P10 has been significantly upgraded and now yields approximately 75% better overall performance than the Triton. Lexar have managed to do this without a significant price increase which is welcome news considering the already relatively high price of the Triton. Unfortunately it's not all good news because despite its record breaking sequential speeds the P10, like the Triton, 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]
