6:49 – Conclusion and final thoughts
This is the fastest USB stick I’ve tested to date that can deliver close to SSD performance. But it’s not as consistent as some of the SSD drives we’ve tested on the channel.
Writes start off very, very fast but quickly step down as its on board cache fills up and it has to wait for the flash memory to write the data. Reads though are more consistent, regularly deliver speeds at well over 300 megabytes per second.
I would recommend this for people looking for fast performance using applications that read more data than they write. Video editing, gaming, and movie playback will be fine. I don’t recommend it for write intensive applications like video capture.
