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
Conclusion: As with a large number of products that I look at, the numbers do speak for themselves. Lexar state on their website that this is one of the fastest drives available on the market at this moment in time and I have to give it to them, they’re right. The only other high speed drive that I’ve seen in recent months is the 64GB HyperX from Kingston and having the speed factor on its side, the P10 has straight away put itself onto the winners podium on performance alone.
Pros: High read and write speeds, Good 4K performance, Solid build quality
Cons: ~£45 price tag may still scare of some potential buyers
Lexar Jumpdrive P10, S23 and S73 USB 3.0 Drives Review
20 August 2013
Excerpt: USB storage drives are available in all shapes and sizes, from basic models to those shaped like a million themes such as sports cards, video game characters and food. Then there are the super durable models with waterproof and shockproof coatings. Really though most of us just want a quality USB stick that we can rely on. One which has the speed and capacity to meet our needs and if it doesn’t look silly then that’s a bonus.
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.
