If copying large files to the drive from a really fast motherboard-mounted nvme ssd, it's crazy fast.

Positive Review

Packaging/appearance


Because of its size, i was able to do a complete copy of my files right onto the flashdrive.

Fortunately it does have a slightly less fall than other usb's i've used and maintains more consistency.

    However, performance with small files is abysmal (i got about 4mb/s when reading small files, and writing is about 1mb/s), so if you want to move anything with small files around, it may not be a bad idea to put them together into an archive or something beforehand.

    People thinking of getting this device should consider formatting to exfat before using it.

    Moving small files, in addition to being slow, also seems to make the drive heat up more than moving a single large file, but i have yet to test moving a large file at top speed, since nothing else i have gets near the sequential i/o capabilities of this drive.

    Because of the surprisingly bad performance this drive has with small files, i would recommend this for more of a backup task, as opposed for regular use, since the low speeds that this drive has with small files would make it unsuitable for use as a day-to-day drive for most people.

    What i really did not like is what they say you can down load to the storage device and huge difference on what you can actually store on it.

    Instead of a 512 gb they should have called it about a 470 gb.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    This short fall is ridiculous.

    It turned out i needed 2 512/470 apx gb drives.
