Patriot Supersonic Xpress 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive

I'm disappointed, only getting 40MB/s read & 9 MB/s write
Capless design is interesting, but not robust. Don't think it will last long.
Price was right, $30 after rebate.

Patriot Memory

  • USB 3.0 compliant for fast read/write performance
  • 32GB - Up to 60MB/s read*
  • 32GB - Up to 25MB/s write*
  • Backwards compatible with USB 2.0
    * based on internal testing

Harddrive Error imo

So this worries me.
I have a 3Tb GoFlex Drive and HdTune sees it as 375Gb drive.

The free version was released 2/12/2008. Don't expect much from it any more. Windows reports it correctly.

No, it dosen't benchmark. It is only a disk info tool, but crystal diskmark does benchmark.

OKAY, here they are are but I don't know exactly what it tells me. Are the results good or bad and if bad - what can be done other than buy new HDs?

At least they perform similarly.

Those are not bad scores and they have a good access time for a mechanical hard drive. Are there faster hard drives? Yes, but it is unlikely you will notice very much difference. For an OS drive, access time is more important than speed.
