I have not done a full review of this drive but given its relatively rare positioning as a Rugged USB 3.0 drive, the first drive I put it head to head with, based in its official specs, was the Kingston Datatraveler R3.0. The Kingston R3.0 leads the budget end of the USB 3.0 flash drives spectrum and it also happens to be a rugged drive. The Kingston has quadruple the write speed and a 30% faster read speed than the 810. In terms of price the 810 leads but not by much. I don't think the 810 will be a terribly successful flash drive from Transcend, they need to deliver more performance, especially write, to compete in the now very competitive USB 3.0 flash drive market. [Jul '13 USBFlashPro]

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]
