The Supersonic boost has an interesting performance profile. The drive put in an excellent performance in the random 4K write test where it significantly outperformed more expensive drives but it scored very poorly in the random 4K read test. So where does that leave us? Well it really depends on the intended use for the drive. The strongest aspect of this drives performance is its outright read speed which is a very respectable 85MB/s and for most flash drive users that's the figure that's going to make the most difference. [Jun '12 USBFlashPro]
