Review: 16GB USB Drives – What’s Worth Your $$$

Review of 16GB Flash Drives

Our friends at Test Freaks gathered up 17 different 16GB drives and did some hands on benchmark and testing.  First off, props goes out to Mr. Brozio for convincing all the manufacturers to give up free 16GB drives.  Second, I give him kudos for the in-depth analysis and benchmarking test.  Well done. The 16GB USB review includes the following drives:
  • Adata Sport Series RB19 16gb
  • Corsair Flash Voyager
  • HP USB Flash Drive v125W
  • Imation Swivel Flash Drive
  • Kingston Data Traveler100
  • Kingston DataTraveler HyperX
  • Memorex Traveldrive
  • OCZ Diesel
  • OCZ Throttle
  • Patriot Exporter XT
  • PNY Attache
  • PQI Traveling Disk 1221
  • Ridata EZdrive Lightning Series
  • Sandisk Cruzer Micro
  • Super Talent Pico-C
  • Transcend JetFlash Elite Enabled
  • Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go

review 16GB USB drives

I wont give away the full details on the 16GB USB review – please check with Test Freaks.  However, it is painfully clear that Transcend Jetflash is a horrible drive.  Which is funny as they spend a good amount of marketing time and money saying they are the best performing.  Transcend must be taking Ford’s marketing philosophy and advertising their weakness.  “Built Ford Tough” ha – those cars are anything but tough. To get a bit of their approach Test Freaks considers:
If I’m looking for a USB drive, the first thing I look at is the Copy To or Write speeds, this is what is most important to me, the next thing would be the Copy From speeds, as for me what I do most is put data on it, then take it off, reading from the drive is not that important to me really. So it all depends on what your priorities are concerning USB drives, the results are here, you can judge for yourself which is best for you.
