The SuperSonic Pulse is one of the smaller drives we have tested. This drive has excellent all round read performance and very poor all round write performance. An asymetrical read/write performance of this type will only work out for a small minority of users. From a value perspective this drive is slightly above average at the time of writing. [Jun '12 USBFlashPro]

The Store n Go had a quirky performance profile. For its price the drive shone in the CrystalDiskMark and ATTO tests but the AS-SSD real world speed test revealed that the drive was less able to both read and write at the same time. It might be best to avoid this drive if you plan to run applications or host an operating system. Our tests showed the drive outperforming Verbatim's claimed write speed by a factor of three, an unusual result. There are several versions of this drive going by the same name, some with an LED, some without and all with vastly varying speed profiles. Our test drive performed at the top end of the speed range we have seen. Overall, given the low price but inconsistent results, we consider this drive average at best and a somewhat risky purchase.  [Oct '13 USBFlashPro]

USB Flash Drive Rankings (Price vs Performance) October 2018 USB Rankings.

We highlight the best USB flash drive in terms of balanced performance and value for money using current prices, sequential read, sequential write , 4k read and 4k write speed. The speeds are combined to form a single effective speed which measures performance for tasks such as copying photos, music and videos. Effective speed is adjusted by current price and capacity to yield value for money. Finally thousands of individual user ratings are used to validate our benchmark figures. [USBFlashPro]
