The benchmark scores for the SanDisk Extreme were stunning. Until now every flash drive we have tested has shown a serious weakness in the area of 4K random writes. The SanDisk Extreme achieved a 4K random write speed of 2.1 MB/s which was over three times faster than the best of the rest, unfortunately we were unable to get consistent measurements but 2.1 MB/s was towards at the lower end of the range (10.8 MB/s - 1.71 MB/s) we observed. We suspect the inconsistency relates to the way the controller batches page cleanup. The other benchmark observations were all consistent and to date this drive has the highest sequential read we have seen on a 16GB flash drive. The SanDisk Extreme has not been released in the UK. Our test unit had to be shipped from Hong Kong where we were able to purchase it at at an extremely reasonable price. We will update the price if/when the drive becomes officially available in the UK ... [Jul '12 USBFlashPro]

The 32GB Jumpdrive P10 is one of the fastest flash drives I have seen in 2013. The P10 has exactly the same, superb, physical construction as its predecessor, the Jumpdrive Triton. Internally the 32 GB version of the P10 has been significantly upgraded and now yields approximately 75% better overall performance than the Triton. Lexar have managed to do this without a significant price increase which is welcome news considering the already relatively high price of the Triton. Unfortunately it's not all good news because despite its record breaking sequential speeds the P10, like the Triton, struggles in the area of small 4K random writes. If you are planning to use this drive to copy small files or to host applications you will likely be disappointed otherwise for tasks such as copying video and audio files this is one of the fastest flash drives you can currently buy. [Aug '13 USBFlashPro]

USB Flash Drive Rankings (Price vs Performance) September 2021 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]
