The 16GB Corsair Flash Voyager GT is an above average performer. With burst sequential read/write speeds of 130/24 MBps the GT has a reasonable large file performance profile. The GT clocked in an effective speed of 73.6 MB/s which puts it amongst the top 25% of 16GB USB 3.0 flash drives. The peak small file 4K read/write speeds of 18.8/0.93 MBps demonstrated by our four samples are remarkable. These speeds mark the Voyager GT as the fastest 4K reader and the fourth fastest 4K writer amongst all the 16GB flash drives we have tested to date, a very impressive result. [Feb '14 USBFlashPro]

The new Adata Dashdrive UV128 has a performance profile that closely matches its older, and recently rebranded, Dashdrive Elite S102 Pro sibling. Comparing the two shows that the drives are nearly identical except for form factor. Personally I prefer a retractable form factor as USB caps are easily lost. Overall in terms of performance the Dashdrive UV128 is slightly above average and in terms of value for money it is also reasonable. [Jul '13 USBFlashPro]
