We had high expectations for this drive, unfortunately we were slightly disappointed. On the positive side the drive has excellent sequential read speeds, but the performance profile is unbalanced and the drive is significantly weaker at writing. In terms of build quality the drive is lacking, the plastic feels loose and the drive rattles when you shake it. Overall this drive has above average performance but is also priced higher than average leaving it reasonable value for money at best, there are better deals to be had at this time. [Jun '12 USBFlashPro]

The Micro Vault Click has a claimed read speed of up to 82 MB/s, no official figure for write speed is offered by Sony, usually a bad sign. User reviews indicate that this drive has a write speed of between 8 and 13 MB/s and that the real world read speeds are in the range of 50 - 80 MB/s. With these sorts of speeds this drive is considerably worse at writing than a lot of USB 2.0 drives. I won't do a complete review for this drive as it would be a waste of time, there are far better value for money USB 3.0 flash drives available elsewhere including Sony's own Micro Vault Mach[Jun '13 USBFlashPro]
