Summary: The speed isn't phenomenal but in serious operation it will definitely tap out usb 2.0. If you want a faster drive you're going to have to go with bigger capacity (more silicon means more parallel access)
Pros: -Decent price while still maintaining quality -USB 3.0 speed -Convenient Cap
Summary: I honestly don't use USB drives very often and generally am not moving large amounts of data when I do use them. So this 8GB stick does the job nicely. Plus the up and down speeds are so much faster than that of my older 2.0 sticks.
Pros: Much, much faster than my decrepit USB 2.0 sticks. Durable aluminum shell. Got it on sale.
