Summary: The Lexar JumpDrive Triton received an 8.8 and our Highly Recommended award when we reviewed it almost exactly one year ago. Lexar has gone from 150 MB/s read and write to well over 240 MB/s on paper with the JumpDrive P10. This is a hefty jump while keeping the retail price essentially the same as when the Triton was released.
Pros: Excellent average write performance, Advertised speed can only be reached rarely, High quality unibody casing, Retractable USB connector, Little string to attach to keychain included, Available in 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB capacity, Built-in red activity LED
Cons: Average read performance is less than that of the Triton, Above average price, Simple string to attach to key chain, Larger than other high-end flash drives on the market
Excerpt: Shortly after CES 2013 concluded, I contacted Lexar in regards to sampling their latest flash drive, the P10. At that time they were still working a few kinks out of the mechanical design, but here today the drive is ready and we have the 64GB in for testing. In CDM, we found the P10 reaching 242MB/s in sequential read and 243MB/s in seq write.4K read with a QD of 32 was quite impressive as well.
