The Patriot Tab has a beautifully, compact and solid form factor. In many ways it's the USB 3.0 version of the hugely successful, but terribly slow USB 2.0 DataTraveler SE9. It's clear that achieving the tiny form factor has required sacrifices in the speed department because the Tab has a relatively poor performance profile. With sequential read/write speeds of 112/16 MB/s the Tab has an effective speed of 60.7 MB/s which is below average for a 32GB USB 3.0 flash drive and would mean waiting around five minutes to copy one 4.5GB DVD onto the flash drive. Although the 32GB Tab isn't a great performer in absolute terms, it is actually the best performing micro USB 3.0 flash drive I have seen to date. [Mar '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]

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]
