For real world usability this is currently the best 64GB flash drive (superseded by the Ventura Ultra - 2014). It has a very balanced performance profile with an exceptional 4K random write speed. The 16GB version of the Extreme is currently the value leader in the USB 3.0 flash drive shootout. At present there are no viable alternatives to the 64GB Extreme in fact the Corsair voyager GT turbo is the only drive on the horizon that may challenge the Sandisk any time soon. There are however several reports (Newegg, Amazon) of compatibility issues with this, the 64GB version (other versions are fine), so if you do go for the 64GB version, don't throw the receipt away in a hurry. [Feb '13 USBFlashPro]

The 16GB Jumpdrive P10 decimates the existing sequential write speed records. With a sequential write speed of 161 MB/s the P10 is 52% faster than the current record of 106 MB/s which is held by Lexar's previous flagship USB 3.0 Jumpdrive Triton. As yet the P10 is still relatively new but Lexar have an excellent track record for reliability and the P10 is likely to fare well amongst the competition. Within the 16 GB category the P10 is currently the worlds fastest flash drive. That said, if your use case involves a lot of small file operations (most don't), then there are better alternatives available. [Aug '13 USBFlashPro]
