The 16GB version of the V3 Max has good potential thanks to its outstanding read/write speeds of 175/80 MBps. At the 64GB and 32GB capacities the V3 Max is no longer as attractive because its speeds remain mostly unchanged from those of its younger 16GB sibling. Generally speaking larger capacity drives have better write performance[Jul '13 USBFlashPro]

MORE DETAILS

Because of its fantastic headline read/write speeds, there is often a lot of interest in this drive. It's not available in 16GB so I couldn't include it in the standardized tests. Quickly looking at the 64GB Kingston HyperX 3.0 (manuf.) claimed seq r/w speeds 225/135 @ £78 or $100. Compared to the November leader - Sandisk Extreme 64GB version (manuf.) claimed r/w 190/170 @ £45 or $79. The extreme is significantly better value, and has much much faster 4K write speeds. [Nov '12 USBFlashPro]
